"No dyslexic child without support"
Rello Sánchez's motivation to dedicate herself to the work of dyslexia originated in her personal experience, since she herself suffered from this learning difficulty during her childhood.
During his academic career, Rello Sánchez has obtained more than ten awards, scholarships and recognitions; some of them are: 3 4 1 5
- Award of Academic Excellence of the Community of Madrid 2007 - 2008

In 2013, Rello Sánchez was awarded the European Young Researchers' Award (EYRA), awarded by the organization Euroscience, an independent association for the promotion and promotion of science and technology in Europe, for its work of research in the area of computer science and accessibility for people with dyslexia.
Rello Sanchez has described his experience with the disease as very difficult and has acknowledged that at that time he never imagined that he would end up studying a PhD and less, that he would finish elementary school.
In March 2011 he began his PhD studies at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona, Spain, where he carries out his research within the Department of Information and Communication Technologies
-Luz Rello created the social enterprise Change Dyslexia in 2015 with the aim of implementing more than 6 years of research through an independent organization whose main objective is the global reduction of school dropout rates due to dyslexia. Dyslexia is normally a hidden and poorly treated disorder, despite its high prevalence, estimated between 7% and 10% of the population.
-Rello Sánchez's PhD work focuses on dyslexia and the development of a model that will facilitate access to the Internet for people who suffer from this learning difficulty; The working model is called DysWebxia and is based on two premises: on the structure of the web page from its programming language, and on the content, specifically on the development of the text, since the current applications that facilitate the Internet access to people with dyslexia only modify the design of the page or website, but not its content.
Rello Sánchez did his university studies in Linguistics at the Complutense University of Madrid, where she graduated with honors.
Then she studied international masters in Natural Language Processing and Human Language Technologies, at joint program of the University of Franche-Comté, in France, of the University of the Algarve, in Portugal, of the University of Wolverhampton, in England and from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, in Spain, where she graduated again with honors.
