Why Fonts Matter: Choosing Accessible Fonts in Speech Therapy Resources

  1. Laur says:

    Totally agree that a lot of TpT materials aim for cuteness over legibility. I always appreciate the simplicity of design in your materials. I will say though, that some of my younger students are tripped up with figuring out “l” vs “I” in some fonts. I usually have them look for things or words with their sounds on our walk back to the classroom and bulletin boards with fonts like that get them very confused.

    Thank you for writing this post! I totally agree! I certainly love “cute and curly” fonts for my own organization, but I know that my students struggle with phonemes, graphemes, and decoding. This post is something terrific that I can share with others, something I feel like I would have liked to create myself if I had the time! šŸ˜‰ Thank you Shannon, for AGAIN, creating something so helpful for students, for myself, and something I can pass on to others. šŸ™‚

    This is such great info, thank you! Iā€™m just starting to make materials and I actually have a question related to this. When making materials to sell, do we need to buy fonts or can we just use the free ones on our computers? Thanks in advance!

      You’d have to search for each font + “commercial use”. Some free fonts are okay for commercial use and others aren’t! Hope that helps!
