Is Irlen Syndrome/Scotopic Sensitivity Inherited?

There has been some research done in Australia by (Robinson, Foreman & Dear, 2000) which investigated
the possibility that Scotopic Sensitivity/Irlen Syndrome runs in families.
Their research found that there was an 84% chance of at least one parent showing similar symptoms.
When I was screening a student last year, their mother was present at the screening. She actually presented with very significant symptoms at the time. When I asked the mother to come back for a screening the next day, I found significant indicators that she had Irlen Syndrome as well.
