Irlen Awareness Week All Entries

To raise awareness of Irlen Syndrome Julie Yaxley (MA) is hosting a free event from 10am to 12pm at the Krist Samaritan Center in Clear Lake on Saturday October 17th.

Irlen Syndrome is a visual processing difficulty. Half of those having difficulties with reading can be experiencing Irlen Syndrome. It is not something that is corrected by a prescription. Irlen Syndrome can also cause perception difficulties in the environment. It can make things look distorted, make judging distances difficult, and result in visual overload.

Irlen Syndrome can occur on its own or as part of difficulties experienced by those with Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism, head injuries. It occurs across the population even in gifted students.

Those with Irlen Syndrome can get headaches, experience visual stress and eye strain, have difficulty concentrating, loose their place when reading, have poor reading comprehension.

Julie Yaxley is an Irlen Diagnostician who can prescribe colored overlays (clear plastic sheets) for reading and a specific tint color worn as glasses to aid those with this difficulty. Come along to the free event and help raise awareness of Irlen Syndrome! It may be you, a relative or a friend who needs to know about this solution! For more information contact: jyaxley@samaritanhouston.org.
