Dyslexia Fonts

Using a Dyslexia Font will encourage your ability to read.  Trying to stop the letters from flipping or reversing while reading is more difficult than just learning to read the letters upside down.  If you read the letters upside down you can still gain ‘normal’ reading retention.    

If you use a Dyslexia Font you will be able to see the letters clearer.  When you use fonts that have differentiating differences you are able to read more effectively.  If the b, d and p look identical in the font you will not be able to read it as readily if you are Dyslexic.
