Try Being Me offers an interactive look at dyslexia

To accompany a CBBC Newsround report on children suffering from dyslexia, the BBC has posted an interactive series of browser games which simulate the experience of suffering from the disability.

Titled Try Being Me, the games present creative interpretations of the symptoms of dyslexia, such as memory loss and the confusion with reading and decoding written words. Different mini-games have been added to the website over the past few days, lining up with the premiere of a Newsround special focusing on a group of children and adults alike who have suffered from dyslexia their entire lives.

Try Being Me is the latest in a large library of browser games based on the BBC's shows, including Horrible Histories and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
