Font style and type makes a difference to some dyslexic people. This one has been developed specifically with dyslexia in mind. Free download so may be worth trying.

Teaching Children With Dyslexia - Accommodations - Reading Horizons

Teaching Children With Dyslexia - Accommodations - Reading Horizons | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

"As a dyslexic specialist and someone who knows a great deal about teaching children with dyslexia, I see on a daily basis the struggles these students face in the mainstream classroom. What can be written in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) varies from state to state, and, often, dyslexia is not even addressed. Sometimes, if you approach it as a reading disability or a processing disorder, the schools may be more willing to work with you. You have the right as parents to discuss with your children's teachers certain accommodations that will help your children perform better and allow them to measure a more-accurate assessment of their knowledge and intelligence. You may take this list in to your children's schools and/or teachers and discuss with them what they would be willing to do to help your children."

This is one of those developments that make you love technology and how it can truly benefit education. There's a free open font now available that may actually help dyslexic people read better. Whether it's true or not, this idea is incredible."

A font that may make more students successful...and it is free! In late June I posted an article that spoke about this font. If you search for the term dyslexic you will find additional information about this font and dyslexia.
