My client is having a problem seeing some letters – how can I help?

If they are having difficulties ask them to do any of the following:-

  • Ask “What do you need to do to make the word/letters clear and still?”;
  • Break the word into groups of up to three letters and build your picture group by group;
  • Make any unclear letters or groups stand out by making them look different than the others in some way – e.g. bigger, brighter, closer, a different colour, etc;
  • If the word is a person or a thing, picture that person or that thing and put the letters over it or under it like a caption;
  • Picture the word in your favourite colour;
  • If it is a long word, make the letters small enough so that you can see the whole word easily;
  • Trace the letters in the air with your finger and picture in your mind the letters you are writing.
