Irlen Syndrome makes Handwriting and Organizing Writing difficult
Can Irlen Syndrome (visual processing disorder) make HANDWRITING AND ORGANIZING WRITING difficult? YES! The contrast between the white page and black lines (or text written by the student) can create visual stress and visual distortions such as black lines/text moving or fading into the page.

12 year old girl describes her visual processing difficulties in a typed list
We had a 12 year old girl come to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic, Houston/Galveston for Irlen colored glasses. She had previously been diagnosed by us with Irlen Syndrome, which is a visual processing difficulty (so not to do with the eyes but the brain). She had typed out a list of things that she had problems with including “When in a certain light I get a headache, even if I’m not reading”; “Reading sentences that are close together make me want to cross my eyes and scream!”

I wanted to give you some GREAT news! My son’s Irlen glasses came in the day before STAAR testing. He was able to use them for the test and we just found out that he passed his Reading! This is the first time since 4th grade that he has passed it on the first try! We are so excited at the difference these glasses are making already!
