Abelardo is the creator of OpenDyslexic, a free and open source typeface to help with some of the symptoms of dyslexia.
He currently work as a Solutions Development Analyst at Blue Cross Blue Shield in Massachusetts in the US, and has worked as a freelance developer since 2007.
He started working on OpenDyslexic late 2011, after realizing that there was no practically affordable typeface for dyslexic users available. It was made free and open source to encourage rapid adoption, and quickly reach more people that could use it.
