You may be surprised to hear that font style, font size, and the color of paper can help students with reading and reading comprehension issues! Studies have found that students with dyslexia may benefit from using different color paper or paper overlays because it reduces stress on the eyes.

The challenge is figuring out how to appropriately decorate in a way that is economical in both finances and space.
