Dyslexia alters the life of millions of children and adults worldwide and has serious educational, psychological and social consequences. Approximately between 5% and 10% of the school-aged children show a type of deficiency in communicating or learning process, with repercussions in absence rate and school abandonment. Our works aims at carrying out research, design and implementation of a virtual learning environment (VLE), for rehabilitating patients with cognitive disabilities, in order to re-integrate them into the educational and socio-professional environment. In this paper we present a multimedia and interactive learning environment for the benefit of patients with dyslexia.
