Video: How do you know if your reading is 'normal'?
15 year old Honors student with Irlen Syndrome describes what it is like for her to read.
A 15 year old student that I saw this week at my Irlen Clinic describes what it is like for her when she tries to read. She didn’t realize that her physical symptoms were connected to the huge effort she had to put in when trying to make out the words. When we found her particular color of overlay she looked at the text and exclaimed ‘That’s crazy, I can see it’!
She is sharing this video so that others question if their ‘normal’ is really what other students perceive and to raise awareness of the massive difference a correctly prescribed overlay can make. Even if you have been diagnosed with Dyslexia and ADHD already (as she had) Irlen Syndrome could be a ‘huge’ part of your ‘Jigsaw’ that can be remedied quickly.
