This cropped up on the Education Otherwise mailing list

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.


I am trying to think of the implications of this with respect to dyslexia. If it is really not important how the letters appear in a word then is dyslexia really a learning handicap? Or if it is, does it necessarily have to be? I am sure a really clever person could help me out with this.
