A website set up by a dyslexic schoolboy to help other people with dyslexia has been named one of the top 12 sites of 2002 by Yahoo! UK & Ireland, reports the Times Educational Supplement.
13-year-old Barnaby Blackburn set up when he was just 10, after studying Web design in after-school classes.
The site features Barnaby's own account of his early problems with the education system - as well as self-help ideas on spelling, typing and using computers, and advice for teachers.
He has also started selling his own spelling and math software from the site - and has orders coming in from schools in the UK and abroad.
The site was described by the judges as "one of the best sites on the net dealing with dyslexia".
"Since the award was announced I've been getting about 5,000 hits a day, " Barnaby told the TES. "I learned how to make websites at my last school, but I built the site at home. It's helped me a lot - mainly by increasing my confidence. It's great that it's helping other people too."
