During a Skype discussion with Lisa Seeman and Neil Milliken I mentioned research that (amongst many other things) showed evidence that highlighting key words in text enhances comprehension for people with dyslexia. Lisa proposed that I send this to the list, so here is the link to it:

The key recommendations from the research are included in Luz Rello's DysWebxia model which is summarized in chapter 16.

Best regards
