Here are some dyslexia memes we can all relate to:

 

1. Dyslexics of the World UNTIE!

Description: A clenched fist and the text, “Dyslexics of the World UNTIE!” are on a black background.

Explanation/why this meme is relatable: The caption is supposed to say, “Unite,” but people with dyslexia can read it as, “Untie!”

 

2. Fry Not sure if dyslexic meme

Description: Fry from Futurama is squinting. The caption says: “Not scpe if dyslexic or jcst lusin6 minb (sic).”

Explanation/why this meme is relatable: The caption should say, “Not sure if dyslexic or just losing my mind.” A person with dyslexia or one who could be losing their mind can interpret the caption as it is written in the meme.

Miscellaneous: Upon clicking the above link, one will find that the GIF is animated and the letters and numbers keep changing to represent how a person with dyslexia may read text.

 

3. Has directional dyslexia…

Description: A duckling is shown on a bright pink, yellow and orange background. The caption says, “Has directional dyslexia, which doesn’t affect reading or spelling/writing. People won’t believe I’m dyslexic.”

Explanation/why this meme is relatable: People who have dyslexia can have a poor sense of direction as well as have difficulty with reading, spelling and writing. The reason the duckling thinks that people won’t believe they are dyslexic is because they believe that many people will only think about reading, writing and spelling difficulties when they first hear about dyslexia.

 

4. If you’re dyslexic, life gives you melons

Description: We see a teenage boy or young man with an unusual expression on his face. The caption in big blue letters says, “If you’re dyslexic, life gives you melons.”

Explanation/why this meme is relatable: The caption is based on the saying, “When life gives you lemons.” People with dyslexia may interpret it as, “When life gives you melons.”

 

5. I swear to dog, I’m not dyslexic!

Description: Captain Jean-Luc Picard (portrayed by Patrick Stewart) from the Star Trek franchise has his arm outstretched and looks as if he’s about to shake hands. The caption says, “I swear to dog, I’m not dyslexic!”

Explanation/why this meme is relatable: The caption should read, “I swear to God, I’m not dyslexic!” People with dyslexia can interpret the caption as it is written in the meme. The caption can also refer to people who could have dyslexia without knowing it until they get a formal diagnosis.

 

6. Simply not does one dyslexia ignore

Description: This meme is part of the “One Does Not Simply Walk Into Mordor’ series. It depicts Boromir (portrayed by Sean Bean) from the Lord of the Rings film franchise making a zero shape with his hand and the caption: “Simply not does one dyslexia ignore.”

Explanation/why this meme is relatable: The caption is supposed to say, “One does not simply ignore dyslexia.” People with dyslexia can read the caption as it is written in the meme.

Miscellaneous: Another version of the meme with the caption, “One does not simply work from home without distraction,” is used in the blog post about our content volunteer April’s experiences with working from home as a neurodivergent person. In this case, people who work from home can be easily distracted whether they are neurodivergent or not.

 

7. Yoda dyslexia meme

Description: We see Yoda from the Star Wars franchise and the caption, “No tendencies. Dyslexia, you are, or are not.”

Explanation/why this meme is relatable: The caption is based on the way Yoda speaks as well as how people with dyslexia speak or read things.
