The fun way to learn!

Educational comics that turn KS2 school curriculum content into engaging comic strips, smashing motivational barriers to reading and learning. This especially includes Dyslexia and Autism.

As a bonus they also use colour-coding and footnotes, as well as a dyslexia-friendly font. This way, our comics make learning more accessible and encourage reluctant readers to get into reading, increasing their engagement and learning retention.

Welcome to schoolwork, reimagined!

About Dekko Comics

Dekko Comics are a company that turn wordy information (be it school-related or otherwise) into engaging comic narratives. This is because they understand that words are just one way to communicate, and they believe it’s unfair to expect everyone to learn the same way as each other and be just as good at the same skills. By turning maths, literacy, science and more into comics, they use the comic format to naturally communicate the information with more than just words. They use visuals, break up the information into speech bubbles and panels, use narrative to create natural landmarks, and more.

Often children with neurodiversity (such as dyslexia and autism) find it easier to engage with sensory things like visuals, colour and story than they do with words alone. By providing children who are neurodiverse with a form of info-communication that uses more than just words, it helps them realise they can access information just as naturally as anyone else when presented in a way that speaks to their strengths.

Confidence is one of the hardest obstacles for a child who is neurodiverse, and their self esteem when they struggle to keep up with and achieve with the rest of their peers in the conventional education system. By giving them a way that is both highly accessible and fun to access the same information, their confidence is boosted drastically. It also gives them the tools and mindset to start accessing more information this way, and Dekko Comics even run workshops to help teach pupils about this and give them ideas of how they can turn their own schoolwork into their own form of entertainment.

This is how Dekko Comics helps children who are neurodiverse achieve their potential and thrive, and they believe every child deserves that chance.

Rossie – Director & Founder

Illustrated by Adam Baran

Rossie founded Dekko on the principle that every mind matters. Growing up with Dyslexia, Rossie often struggled to keep up in classes and often felt that he was a ‘thicko’. By creating comics to help him study for his exams, he was able to reach his potential and pass his exams with A’s.

Rossie has won awards from Young Edge and the SME Business Awards, and been nominated for several more such as the National Diversity Award and Dyslexia Awareness Award. He has also been featured on BBC News, STV and having done 3 TEDX Talks — all of which to spread the word of his dream to make education accessible and fun for all, and lose the stigma of “stupidity” that often surrounds those who have neurodiversity.
