Could VR have an impact on dyslexia? Tony Parkin on a research project seeking help from schools
Everyone who is a fan of the ‘Educating Yorkshire’ series on Channel 4 vividly remembers the episode "When Mushy found his voice". The powerful programme, which showed how the using simple technology helped a stammering Musharaf overcome his speaking difficulties, and do well enough in his oral to get the grade he needed, moves everyone who sees it.
Now there is a suggestion that use of VR (virtual reality) technology may be able to help some sufferers of dyslexia, and teachers are being asked to volunteer to be host schools for an exciting research project, starting NOW.
