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.
