Do you or someone you know have difficulty reading?

I've taken these questions from the book 'Reading by the Colors' written by Helen Irlen, the founder and executive director of The Irlen Institute for Perceptual and Learning Difficulties.
If you or someone you know has difficulty reading, why not answer the following questions:
  1. Do you skip words or lines when reading?
  2. Do you reread lines?
  3. Do you lose your place?
  4. Are you easily distracted when reading?
  5. Do you need to take breaks often?
  6. Do you get headaches when you read?
  7. Do your eyes get red and watery?
  8. Does reading make you tired?
  9. Do you blink or squint?
  10. Do you prefer to read in a dim light?
  11. Do you read close to the page?
  12. Do you use your finger or other markers?
  13. Do you get restless, active, or fidgety when reading?
If you answered yes to three or more of the above questions, then you MAY be experiencing the effects of Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome - Irlen Syndrome, which can greatly interfere with your ability to read words on the page.
