Is font preference just a preference, or is there a science behind it? Are there some fonts for dyslexics that are easier to read? The local newspaper changed some fonts recently, updating the look and modernising it. Some fonts are easier to read than others and this is especially important for poor readers.

Depression is a problem that has a negative impact on children’s learning. If your child is going backwards in their learning, it is worth asking if they might be among the 2% of children or 10% of teenagers who are dealing with depression. The causes of depression are complex, and it doesn’t always appear as feeling sad. Some students will act out to cover up the feelings of sadness. Some students will skip school, be unable to focus on learning new information, or they may have a variety of other symptoms.
