Irlen© Syndrome (Visual Disturbance)

Some people have visual disturbances when they read. This is called Irlen© Syndrome. This can manifest itself by:-

  • Text appearing distorted; letters and words may move, float, disappear, swirl, become blurry etc.
  • The person finding it more difficult to track along the line of text and then losing their place when going to the next line
  • Finding it difficult to copy from the board
  • White pages appearing to change colour and can be more dazzling which makes it harder to decipher the text


If you think yourself or your child suffers from visual stress please complete the questionnaire below.

An Irlen screening assessment will investigate symptoms, an Irlen Reading Perceptual Scale will be completed and a colour evaluation. Following the assessment, Irlen approved overlay and a report will be provided.

This lady really is amazing

"This lady really is amazing. I've just returned from an assessment with my 11-year-old son who is an anxious boy who gets easily stressed and frustrated at just the mention of the word test. So given this I felt nothing but guilt putting him through an assessment, but in my heart I knew it was the only way to find out what his education requirements were. To my amazement and to this lady’s credit my son was all smiles at the end. Which made me feel so much better and relieved having spent the duration of the assessment worrying how he was getting on. He is my second child to be assessed by Sarah-Louise, my daughter’s results were clear, concise and understandable with in-depth information regarding the results and recommendations to help my daughter both at school and at home. Sarah-Louise Jeffries comes with my children’s seal of approval. I most definitely would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone that asked."

Sarah-Louise assessed my daughter for dyscalculia

"Sarah-Louise assessed my daughter for dyscalculia and her very thorough report formed part of the application for her EHCP. It enabled us to give a fuller picture of what our child’s challenges are. Her assessment revealed things that we weren’t aware of. There was no one else we knew of who was able to do this assessment for us so we were very grateful."
