As a certified Irlen® Screener I can help if you think you, your child or another family member might be suffering from Irlen Syndrome.®
What is Irlen® Syndrome?
Irlen Syndrome® (Meares-Irlen Syndrome, Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, or Visual Stress) is a perceptual processing disorder rather than an optical problem. The brain has difficulty in processing visual information. The problem tends to run in families and is not currently identified by other standardised educational or medical tests.
How might it affect me?
Irlen Syndrome® can affect many different areas of everyday life, including:
Your school, academic or work performance;
Your attention span;
Your ability to sit still;
Your ability to concentrate.
Irlen Syndrome can also manifest differently for different individuals. If you suffer from any of the problems listed below Irlen Syndrome may be the cause and you should consider taking the Irlen Self Test.
