We provide screenings for dyslexia using a combination of norm-referenced tests and informal tests designed for use in identifying dyslexia, as well as reviewing all prior testing results and report cards, and samples of school work from the beginning of their academic career.This screening will determine with a high degree of accuracy if your student fits the academic profile.
Screenings for dyslexia or scotopic sensitivity are done in person only.
Irlen Syndrome, or scotopic sensitivity, is a visual perception problem, not an optical problem. The symptoms of Irlen Syndrome are wide-ranging, but the solutions -Irlen colored overlays and Irlen Spectral Filters (worn as either glasses or contacts) – are straightforward and available to you. Irlen addresses the underlying perceptual processing difficulties and light sensitivity that can contribute to reading difficulties, headaches, and attention difficulties. Irlen also can play a role in the challenges experienced by many individuals who have been diagnosed with dyslexia, autism, concussion syndrome and traumatic brain injury (irlen.com) While it is not a cure for dyslexia or a substitute of Orton-Gillingham tutoring, the right colored filter or lens can eliminate the extra visual stress caused by perceptual difficulties. 1 in 5 Dyslexia Tutoring has a certified Irlen screener who performs all the screenings.
