Terminal Server - Per User Display Settings

I'm having issues with our new Terminal Server.  Some of our users have "seeing" issues, so when they log onto the terminal server from their laptops, the fonts are too small.  How can I change this so only certain users have larger fonts when on the Terminal Server?

If they change it while logged in themselves and they have a terminal server profile stored it should be kept when they log out and in.  Set their profile in the ADUC under terminal services profile tab.
Why not have them change the resolution on their laptops?   if they can't see well via RDP, I would imagine they can't see well looking at their local desktop.

If you want to have different settings for certain users, use a separate GPO, configure the Display settings that the user will prefer, create group containing the vision impaired, and give them permission to the GPO.  Place it towards the top of you Link order.  However, many of the settings you want are preferences and not part of the gpo options.
