4 people with hidden impairments
Welcome message, by Andy
Welcome to the dyslexic pages on Hi2u 4 people with hidden impairments, web site. This site is constantly evolving with determination to find a format that is usable by as many people as possible. Particularly trying to design this site to be "dyslexic friendly" enabling people with reading difficulties to access information on hi2u web pages.
The dyslexic pages, is only one section of this site, focusing on information that may be valuable for dyslexic people. Although maybe just a drop in the ocean compared to the amount of information there is for dyslexic people. Its just a beginning and I have included information I personally have knowledge of through my own dyslexic difficulties on these pages. There is also contributions from visitors and other people, some with first hand experience of dyslexia who have provided valuable input to these dyslexic pages.
It isn't an easy task trying to find a format that everyone is comfortable with! It is so easy to design a site centred around needs of people who require the same specifications. However this may not be suitable for others so what is suitable for one dyslexic person may not be ideal for all dyslexic people. However even if this site isn't an ideal format for every dyslexic person I am very much hoping its usable by all dyslexic people. I am also hoping that its usable by other disabled people with different access needs.
This site is still in its infancy with much work to do both with contents and format to ensure access for as many people as possible. If you have any contributions you would like to make or ideas towards making this site more valuable for dyslexic people. Please feel most welcome to get in touch. You can find contact information, by clicking here.
This site also has a page called "your input" where information will slowly be added informing you about ways of participating with this site. To visit "your input" click here.
This site isn't trying to compete with other sites. Its just trying to provide a window for viewing information around hidden impairments like dyslexia in its own style. This site is very much hoping to work with and support others developing issues to create equality for dyslexic people. If you are an organisation or web site designer with similar goals and think we can support each other with our skills and facilities. Please feel more than welcome to get in touch. You can find contact information, by clicking here.
Building this site has been accomplished in a voluntary capacity. Everyone making contributions have also done this voluntary. Therefore before finishing this page I would like to thank very much everyone who has made a contribution to this site. Your input is really appreciated and I hope others will find great value from your contributions too.
I would also like to thank you for visiting the dyslexic pages on the hi2u 4 people with hidden impairments, web site. I hope you have found this site useful and if you would like to show your appreciation for the work involved building this site. Please stop by and sign our guest book. This provides so much encouragement to continue building this site.
With warmest wishes
