Your grandchild is dyslexic ?
Do your children have difficulties in dealing with their child’s dyslexia? This page is for you!
Almost 10% of the world’s population is dyslexic
Many grandparents recommend the Lili lamp to their children for their grandchildren. More than 8% of the population is dyslexic, which is an average of 2 children per class. You must have heard about it around you!
Yes, dyslexia can be frightening because your grandchild has difficulties at school and sometimes even socially. If you are not dyslexic yourself it can be difficult to understand the difficulties: choppy reading, confusion of letters, inversions, omissions, “creative” spelling… in short, writing is difficult for a dyslexic person.
Imagination, creativity, spatial vision
It is not a deficiency but a different functioning of their vision and its retranscription in the brain. At Lili, we like to remind you that beyond the disability, dyslexia is above all a STRENGTH! We want to make life easier for dyslexic people and help them express their full potential.
Imagination, creativity and spatial vision are qualities found in many dyslexics.
Did you know ?
Some companies are looking primarily for dyslexic people. At NASA, for example, more than 50% of the employees are dyslexic because they have very good vision in space and a high level of creativity which allows them to solve complex problems.
Moreover, dyslexics are fighters! They are used to making an effort and taking it upon themselves to compensate for their reading difficulties, and this makes them more perseverant in life!
A simple piece of advice: put yourself in your child’s shoes. Being dyslexic means spending the school day noticing mistakes, sometimes being misjudged, working hard to get bad marks, all the while expending a lot of energy.
To understand the attentional cost of a school day, imagine yourself after a full day of professional training, where you try to absorb a maximum of information. You usually come out of it completely washed out! And you have to add 3 hours of personal work when you get home in the evening… 🤯
A great discovery for dyslexics
Albert Le Floch et Guy Ropars, two French physicists, were awarded a prize by the French Academy of Medicine in December 2020 for their discoveries on dyslexia.
By chance, while studying the eye, these two researchers found a new possible cause of dyslexia. The cause is an excessive symmetry of Maxwell’s centroids in the fovea at the back of the retina.
For non-dyslexic people, these Maxwell centroids are arranged differently from one eye to the other. It is this arrangement that determines the directing eye.
For the dyslexic person, the blue cones of both eyes form a ’round’ centroid. The arrangement of these photoreceptors is therefore identical from one eye to the other: there is no directing eye.
In the case of ocular non-dominance, the brain will receive, at the same time and in an equivalent way, an image perceived by each eye. These two “mirror” images will be superimposed on each other, leading to reading difficulties which are found in many dyslexic people.
Lili : a tool to ease your child’s life
How does Lili work ?
In order to promote this discovery as widely as possible, our R&D team has developed an innovation that allows dyslexics to erase this annoying mirror image and to find easier, more fluid reading.
Lili emits flashes of light, imperceptible to the naked eye, which make the perception of writing more precise for many dyslexics. In the long term, the light beam helps them to memorise more words, which leads to progress in reading and spelling.
Lili does not cure dyslexia. It is an adaptive tool that makes reading easier and reduces fatigue.
How will your grandchild benefit?
Developed and manufactured in France, Lili is connected, ergonomic, autonomous and mobile in order to promote mobility and accessibility in all circumstances.
