3. Dyslexia in different languages

I have recently been asked to write an article on supporting the multilingual dyslexic individual. So I thought why not list all those EU projects and the languages that are in. Then people can see what is available in various languages. Below is also a brief guide to those projects that have overall guides to understanding dyslexia and where to find them.

Bulgarian - Adystrain, Dessdys, Dys2, Embed, Include, Veto
Bosnian - iSheds
Croatian - iSheds
Czech - Dys2
Danish - Adystrain
Finnish - Adystrain
German - Adystrain, Dys2
Greek - Discovery, Dys2, Include
Hungarian - Dessdys, Discovery, Dystrain, Embed, Include, iSheds, Veto
Italian - Dessdys, Discovery, Embed, Veto
Lithuanian - Dys2
Polish - Embed , Include
Romanian - Dystrain, iSheds, Veto
Serbian - iSheds
Slovenian - iSheds
Spanish - Adystrain, Embed
Swedish - Dystrain
Turkish - Dessdys, Discovery

What about EDysGate under www.edysgate.org?

Thanks for flagging up Edysgate. However, while it is an excellent cognitive learning environment for dyslexic individuals, it does not contain much additional information for the dyslexic individual. All the languages of Edysgate had more extensive information in other projects as listed here. The same if true of Calldysc.
