Dyslexia can cause problems with reading, spelling, writing and processing words. Up to 85 percent of children with learning disabilities in special education could have dyslexia — but that doesn't mean they aren't capable of amazing things. Many famous people have had dyslexia, including Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, John Lennon, Leonardo da Vinci, Muhammad Ali, George Washington, Richard Branson and Agatha Christie.
Swedish developer Victor Widell had a close companion who experiences a form of dyslexia known as "typoglycemia," which involves people reading written words as if everything but the first and final letters are mixed up.
There are many different types of mild and severe dyslexia, and not everyone with this disorder will experience reading words exactly like Widell's blog suggests. However, Widell's page is doing great work to raise awareness about this disorder and ease stigma. And he even includes a bookmark on his blog with the code so that anyone can jumble the text on any website.
