Thanks for this. Both my kids have been diagnosed with convergence insufficiency and one of the recommended accommodations is to ask the teachers to print worksheets in 14pt type. This doesn't seem very practical and I wasn't going to even ask about it. But increasing the kearning, even by a little bit, might be doable. Does anyone know if certain font types are easier to read for those with reading problems - serif, sans serif, etc?

Laura, for printed materials serif typefaces offer greater readability for body text while sans serif typefaces are used for legibility for headlines. The top serif typefaces for readability are Garamond and Times New Roman while the top sans serif typefaces are Ariel, Helvetica, Calibri, and Verdana.
