Child reads fluently for the first time using Irlen Reading Overlay
Can a clear, plastic overlay of a particular color help someone become a FLUENT READER instantly? Well if you have a visual processing difficulty called Irlen Syndrome and you see the words stay in their place and on their line, for the first time ever, then YES!
Meet 9 year old Angie, she came to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) after being referred by her eye Doctor for ‘vision issues’ that weren’t corrected by wearing a prescription and transition lenses. She brought her dad, Richard, who was amazed when he heard her read with the blue overlay (see his face change in the video!) He also explained difficulties he experienced with reading at University and his sensitivity to different seasons/lighting conditions. No surprise dad screened positive for Irlen Syndrome too!
