Irlen Testing

Our Quallified Senior Irlen Screeners are able to assess and diagnose young people with Irlen, as well as suggested recommendations for their learning and produce a report to support this.

We can also provide the necessary screens and lenses post diagnosis.

Irlen Syndrome (also labelled- Scotopic Sensitivity,Visual stress, Meares-Irlen) is a perceptual dysfunction, which affects the way in which the brain interprets the visual information being sent from the eyes.

Irlen Syndrome is not a vision problem in the accepted sense and sufferers do not always have difficulty reading. Irlen Syndrome is a complex condition which causes stress to the individual resulting in a variety of problems.

It is a complex and variable condition which can often coexist with learning difficulties. Irlen Syndrome can be found in combination with dyslexia, autism, ADHD, dyspraxia, dysphasia, or hyperactivity. This light sensitivity can also lead to overloading the other senses, often triggering distress and migraines.
