Please spread awareness this week of this visual processing disorder. Tell friends, work colleagues.... share details of Krist Irlen Clinic's website or facebook page. Or TURN OUT the LIGHTS!
Tuesday 17th October 10 am
This is the time to raise awareness of the visual processing disorder Irlen Syndrome by turning out fluorescent lights at home, work or school. People with this difficulty (including the Director of the Krist Irlen Clinic!) are light sensitive.... especially to bright, indoor lights. That's why she wears special colored glasses (Irlen Filters) so the part of the light spectrum that hurts her brain is stopped!
If you turn out the lights then please CHECK IN on the Irlen website so we can see how many areas around the world have become involved!
