Help yourself to free fonts for supporting Dyslexic students when designing resources. Below is information from the site, just download and use for free.

OpenDyslexic is a new open sourced font created to increase readability for readers with dyslexia. The typeface includes regular, bold, italic, and bold-italic styles, and 2 typefaces: OpenDyslexic, and OpenDyslexic-Alta. There are no restrictions on using OpenDyslexic outside of attribution. For attribution, a simple mention of the URL, and linkback where applicable is sufficient. For example: http://dyslexicfonts.com. This is to assist in others being able to find and download it.

OpenDyslexic is created to help with some of the symptoms of dyslexia. Letters have heavy weighted bottoms to indicate direction. You are able to quickly figure out which part of the letter is down which aids in recognizing the correct letter, and sometimes helps to keep your brain from rotating them around. Consistently weighted bottoms can also help reinforce the line of text. The unique shapes of each letter can help prevent confusion through flipping and swapping.
