+ FONTS – As a rule, the UK (and other countries practicing UK English) would use the pre-cursive font; North America usually prefers to teach using the PRINT font; OPEN DYSLEXIA font might be used anywhere to support students who would benefit from a subtly nuanced design which emphasises the uniqueness of individual letter shapes.
