I am an Irlens sufferer myself although I have no trouble with my reading (other than a slight shadow behind my words). My main problem lies in the fact that bright light affects me so badly. This presentation will be great to help my colleagues understand the disorder. I am a school teacher, so would love for the other teachers to understand it also!
This should be compulsory reading for every primary school teacher - the indicators of Irlens need to be spotted sooner. There is too much "he/she needs to concentrate more" before the frustrated parent (and child) struggles to find out about this one their own. Thank you for posting this excellent information.
Irlen syndrome has long been discredited by pediatricians. Every scientific study (and by that I mean a double blind trial carried out by a genuine scientist and published in a peer reviewed paper) has demonstrated that coloured overlays or tinted lenses make no difference to a child's reading. Furthermore, the identification of Irlen Syndrome (which probably does not even exist according to many scientists) hinders the identification of other credible reasons for a child's reading difficulty. Do not be fooled and do not allow gullible, desperate parents to spend any money on this quackery.
