Lexia Readable is a geometric sans-serif typeface, loosely based upon Comic Sans. It was designed by Keith Bates specifically to address legibility and readability issues related to dyslexia.

It attempts to avoid some possible dyslexic confusions (e.g. b and d, q and p) by slightly altering the standard shapes. It may be particularly useful for anyone with dyslexia type tendencies by creating clearer distinctions between characters with a similar shape or appearance[citation needed].

Lexia Readable font can be downloaded free from K-Type.[1]
