As a spec. ed teacher, I’m always looking for ways to make reading easier for my students with dyslexia. Thanks to twitter, I just came across a post by Jeff Dunn about a free font called Opendyslexic that can be used to help students who have dyslexic reading challenges. Teachers could use the Opendyslexic font in their handouts to make reading easier. I’m thinking students could also change the font of text to Opendyslexic. This is very exciting. Please let me know if you’ve tried the font and it really does make a difference.
You can get the Opendyslexic font here.
