Accessibility (dyslexia) options through Group Policy?

Hi,

I need to be able to make certain users logon have different colour schemes
etc. as some users are dyslexic and have requested things like larger fonts,
icons and different colours (such as a more "pink" environment).

I need to do this through a Group Policy if possible as the environment is a
school using Windows 2000/2003. The users move around so they don't always
use the same computer or even the same building. Of course when a user who
doesn't need such accessibility features logs on to the computer they won't
get larger fonts, icons etc.

Does anyone know how to do this or can anyone give me any tips as to how
they've solved this problem? I'm sure others have had to do this in other
schools, colleges etc.

Any feedback would be excellent!

Regards,
David.

I can't find any policy that does this.

I would use a logon script.
