Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. This session looks at some of the pluses and minuses associated with dyslexia for people in the performing arts. Dyslexics can be imaginative and creative, but they face difficulties with reading, writing and organisational skills. The impact of these difficulties can be reduced by technology in the form of laptops, tablets and smartphones, using built-in accessibility features, or low-cost apps.
