Dyslexia and Irlen Syndrome - What is Irlen Syndrome?

Dyslexia is when individuals have difficulty reading words. Irlen Syndrome is a visual perception disorder. This means that some individuals have great difficulty reading words on a page because the words are moving around. They think that a word moving around while they read is normal because they are not aware of the alternative.
In the adults and children I have screened for Irlen Syndrome, they can’t believe the difference when I put the coloured overlays onto the page. The reading behaviour changes immediately from word by word reading, to phrased and fluent reading.
