Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome
Irlen Syndrome® or Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome (SSS) is a sensitivity to light that can seriously interfere with reading and written language. It can lower test scores and significantly impact a person's ability to function in school and work situations.
It cannot be diagnosed using the standard educational, psycho-educational or speech/language testing.
Fortunately, Irlen Syndrome® is very easy to diagnose and treat through an individual 50-60 minute screening process.
Research studies show that children with other difficulties or diagnoses also have Irlen Syndrome® and can benefit from screening and overlays....46-52% of children with reading difficulties; 85% of children diagnosed with Autism; of those diagnosed with Dyslexia 1/3 have Irlen Syndrome® NOT Dyslexia, 1/3 have both and 1/3 have only Dyslexia.
In U.S. clinical studies, as many as 80% of those diagnosed with ADD have Irlen Syndrome® also. 12-14% of the general population has Irlen Syndrome®.
Let us help you put the puzzle pieces together....... Irlen Syndrome® is recognized by the Texas Education Agency.
Available for: Preschoolers, elementary, teen, adults......
