The Irlen Institute is committed to driving positive societal change in the markets we serve. Beyond our efforts to deliver our diagnostic process and pioneering technology to the consumer in an ethical manner, we strive to engage in actions that further social good, beyond the direct interest of our business model. Working in innovative ways with government, non-profit organizations, and civil society, we are designing and delivering solutions that contribute to a prosperous future for all.
Nonprofit Board Membership
One way we do this is by encouraging our leadership and employees to participate as volunteers and Board members at trusted nonprofit organizations in the community. These Board members serve as fiduciaries that steer organizations towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as make sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission.
Some of the nonprofit organizations our employees service include:
Home Ownership for Personal Empowerment, Inc. Creating stable, affordable housing options for people with developmental disabilities. Get more information on how HOPE is changing lives by visiting www.hope-homes.org.

Since its foundation in 1983, Helen Irlen has dedicated herself to raising awareness of how the brain’s inability to process visual information can be a factor and stumbling block to addressing reading and learning difficulties, low motivation, attention deficit disorder (ADHD), discipline problems, headaches and migraines, autism, and traumatic brain injury.
Over the years Helen has spoken at countless community and industry events pro bono to ensure that individuals, families, and clinicians are aware of this life changing solution.
