See Dyslexia Differently Video

Funded by the Department for Education, the British Dyslexia Association approached Studio Tinto with the idea of creating a brief and uplifting introduction to dyslexia aimed at children, which could double up as a myth-busting tool in their awareness campaigns.

They decided to create a short in a similar vein to Amazing Things Happen (An Introduction to Autism) in the hope it would pave the way for an animation series on diversity and inclusiveness for children.

The animation seeks to preempt misconceptions among young audiences by shedding light on the challenges dyslexic children face while acknowledging their strengths and potential.
