A: Every method should have a way to predetermine which individuals can be helped with their treatment. We have created two methods. We have a questionnaire which asks about sensitivity to lights and fine or gross motor problems related to perceptual difficulties. Then we can determine if the individual is using behaviors to reduce stimuli from the environment. Click here for Autism Questionnaire
For young children or those with little language, in addition to the questionnaire, we have the parent complete a series of activities and record the child’s responses. In their own home, the parent modifies the environment by using different colored light bulbs. We have found that there is a high correlation between the positive changes in behavior that occur with the right lighting and changes with Irlen Spectral Filters. Click here for Light Activity.
