“Font”astic: Help for Dyslexia

In Scientific American, October 26, 2011, a Dutch researcher has created a “font” (printing style) that he believes will help dyslexics to read more easily. Christian Boer, a graphic designer from the Netherlands, has manipulated the look of specific letters in the alphabet that have been troublesome for dyslexics (like “d” and “b”). He calls this font: “Dyslexie” which makes it less likely for dyslexics to turn, exchange or reverse letters and numbers. Mr. Boer has made this font available for purchase in English in the United States online.
