A new collection of fonts designed for dyslexics and special needs students makes it easier for them to:
• Recognize characters (improve legibility)
• Comprehend what they read better (improve readability)
• Practice their initial handwriting
• Avoid common reading and writing mistakes
EzRead/EzWrite/ EzBrainGames is divided into three unique categories:
1. Dyslexia Font: EzRead Adults
2. Dyslexia Font: EzRead Kids
Contrary to the majority of typefaces, which pay attention to aesthetics and symmetry reusing the same shapes for multiple letters (such as b, d, p and q), EzRead makes each letter significantly unique so that readers can more easily distinguish one character from another.
The form of the letter must be generic and familiar, yet still stand out and be unmistakable. Characters are simplified, meaning the “cleaner,” the better. This means NO QUIRKS and no serifs.
Other unique characteristics are (see main page in detail): greater space between letters, words and lines; open counters (the inner space of letters such as a, e, a, o, p or d); heavier capital letters, diacritic marks and punctuation marks; wider stroke at the bottom; capital letters fall slighty under the baseline; ascenders are shorter that descenders; large x-heigth; letters are heavier and flatter at the bottom and curved and thinner at the top; variable angle of inclination; letters do not all seat straight over the baseline….
This category contains two fonts variations, where three letters (a, g and q) have been adapted according to the user’s age:
These typefaces focus on the child natural problem to recognize shapes and properly orienting them. The student will practice copying the character in each box or row. You may wish to show how to form the letter before he does it on his own.
3. Dyslexia Font: EzWrite Box
6. Dyslexia Font: EzWrite Lines Dots
These practice worksheets are very easy to create and will be very beneficial to children who tend to reverse and confuse certain letters and numbers. These exercises are fun but can be overwhelming for the mind if the child is pressure to complete several pages at once. So, start with simple drills, and do not overload the child unless he asks for more.
8. Dyslexia Font: EzBrainGames A
*The last two are variations of A, and B.
The main goal of this category ones again is to help readers to better decoding the characters facilitating reading comprehension and reducing stress.

2. Minimize the number of problems per page.
3. Enlarge worksheets with school fonts.
4. Provide graph paper to keep number problems lined up – allow one block for each number.
5. Highlight math signs, key words in math problems or instructions.
Use the following to select and implement strategies that would be most beneficial for a student’s needs:
1. Experiment with chair and desk size (ensure proper height and posture).
2. Provide a slanted writing surface (use a 4 in. binder as a slant board).
3. Provide increased opportunities for activities that require one-handed manipulation (MATN, 2001) (painting, erasing, and sky-writing) to establish hand dominance.
4. Use an enlarged copy or one with wider margins and/or triple-spaces lines.
5. Color code where to stop and start on paper or use colored paper (MATN, 2001).
6. Experiment with different types of lined papers (raised lines, colored lines, extra space between lines, graph paper).
7. Use writing instruments that are easier to handle or grasp (primary – larger pencils; intermediate – mechanical pencils; weighted pencils).
8. Stabilize paper to prevent writing surface from moving using tape, clipboards, sticky notes, and glue sticks.
9. Use specialized materials to enlarge or change the shape of writing tools (different shapes of pencil grips such as Stetro, triangular, or pear-shaped).
10. Provide both written and oral directions for the same activity.
To group for instruction purposes and to plan for explicit instruction, it is important to know whether students have difficulties in:
• Handwriting only
• Spelling only
• Word reading and spelling
• Handwriting, word reading and spelling
