READING , LEARNING, AND ATTENTION PROBLEMS do not have to limit a child’s future. We’ve got a way! Find out what the Irlen Method, using Irlen Colored Overlays, can do.
|Research was initiated in the 1980’s to study methods of helping adults and children with unresolved learning and reading problems. This research revealed that certain individuals showed a marked improvement in their ability when reading material covered by a colored overlay. Helen Irlen developed a diagnostic assessment instrument to accurately determine those individuals who could benefit from reading using color. The Irlen Method provides a real solution that works simply and effectively. It can be easily incorporated into the educational setting and assessment battery.|
