What is Irlen Syndrome?

Irlen Syndrome is a sensory modulation disorder causing a variety of symptoms including visual processing deficits and light sensitivity. This is a brain processing problem and not a vision problem. Vision perception is a higher-order processing of visual information and involves the brain’s ability to accurately understand and process visual information easily and efficiently without stress. This problem tends to run in families and is not currently identified by other standardized educational or medical tests.

Irlen Syndrome can affect many different areas, including:

* Academic and work performance

* Behavior

* Attention

* Ability to sit still

* Concentration

This problem can manifest itself differently for each individual. This problem is not remediable and is often a lifetime barrier to learning and performance.
