Irlen Awareness Event, Houston, 17th October All Entries

Irlen Director Julie Yaxley arranged an event at the Krist Samaritan Center. She launched the Irlen Clinic’s new interactive website www.yaxley-irlen.com which contains You-Tube videos, overview of research, self-tests and a contact form for questions.

At the awareness event Julie first showed a You-Tube video from the website’s homepage which provides an overview from the Irlen Institute of the Syndrome and its remediation. She asked what differences the audience observed in children’s reading with and without filters (special tinted lenses) and they were impressed with the changes. One speech pathologist commented that parents were always concerned with reading and we need to get the word out.

Julie then used You-Tube videos from the website’s “Symptoms” page to demonstrate how Irlen Syndrome does not just affect perception of print but the environment and how this impacts on a person’s physical well-being.

Julie then showed the novel self-tests on the website. The first involves changing the background color so young children can find if objects hidden on the page can be identified easier. The second involves covering half of a page of text with different colors so when reading across people can judge if reading becomes more fluent.

Please feel free to link to her site if any of these items would prove beneficial to you (or your practice) and help spread awareness.
