Irlen Diagnostic Clinic Newcastle provides support for children who are struggling at school for no apparent reason. Their teachers and parents cannot understand why they are having problems reading. These children usually experience distortions of print when they are reading but THEY DO NOT SELF-REPORT because they do not realise that everyone else sees the words differently from them. They often cannot remember what they have read, and cannot recognise the same word when it appears on the next page. Our assessments involve the use of coloured overlays and specifically tinted Irlen Spectral Filters that are worn as glasses.

Children Group - Irlen Syndrome
Statistics say that at least one of these children will have symptoms of Irlen Syndrome.
