I was sent this article today , written by John Farrier for Neatorama, and though I'd share.

Jonathan Brown of Milton Keynes, UK, has struggled with dyslexia for many years. But he’s found that studying the Klingon language from Star Trek very helpful for coping with it: He explained how he has always had difficulty with reading and also has what he describes as “name blindness” but while doing this work he realised that he could use a different part of his brain. “Dyslexia is not something you get over, you live with it. It’s not necessarily a hindrance, you just learn different ways to pick things up.
“Working on the translation has helped me understand where I’ve been having problems all my life with languages, I realised I’d been trying to remember the words in the name part of my brain and because I   can’t remember names, I can’t remember the words. “With the Klingon language games used on the CD, I tended to put words into a different place and it went into my long term memory. You can’t go wrong by choosing to study Klingon. At one point, just a couple decades ago, it was the fastest growing language in the world!
