Reading Solutions Ltd offers help to people of all ages who experience visual perception and reading problems such as….
“Irlen Syndrome” (also known as Scotopic Sensitivity) has been researched extensively during the past 30 years. It covers problems of visual perception, not eyesight, so doesn’t show up in regular optometry testing, nor in schools’ vision screening
It’s possible to have “perfect” vision and still have Irlen Syndrome! It’s also common to have a good academic record, but have to work much harder than others to achieve this. International and New Zealand research shows that almost half of students tested as having “learning difficulties” incl AD(H)D, may have symptoms of Irlen Syndrome, as will about 1 in 8 of the general population.
