I have pretty servier dyslexia (however over the years my spelling has gotten much better, though i still have to spell check almost all of my post). OpenDyslexic
is a font program you can download, it's aimed at those who have dyslexia with an emphasized bottom on the font to help make reading easier for those with the learning disability, It's something i plan on using as soon as the school year starts back up.
As for a pointer type device for reading i havent used one since i was younger, but i do have a lot of trouble sometimes reading smaller typed print with a 1 point spacing (opposed to a 2 point) and usually have to read a few paragraphs over a couple times. I would suggest the finger pointer book maker
. I also often use my finer to mark my place while i read a long too.
