Dyslexia is known as developmental disorder which might affect a person‟s ability to comprehend either oral or written language which also known as language-related learning disorder. This disorder might leads dyslexics to encounter a major problem with language skills such as words articulation, spelling and writing. As reading and writing are two main components inside the primary education curricular, again it is important for the dyslexic children to empower these skills. Furthermore, according to statistic in Malaysia, the percentage of dyslexic children that cannot read well is 80%. Hence, this project is developed in order to address the visual attention behavior among dyslexic children at the early stage before they are going for reading and writing lessons during primary school. The ability of the dyslexia children to interpret the visual information in the wayfinding environment is very important as it could be a benchmark of performance later on. Moreover, the latest research has proven that the dyslexic children have no difficulty in reading skill if and only if they were able to identify the visual information such as colours, shapes, images, and signs at early stage. The best time suggested period would be during preschool term. Thus, the aim of this project is to help these dyslexic children to categorize them for extra attention from their educators based on ability, in order for helping them to strive for excellent in school and life as well as unleash the utmost talent beneath themselves.
