Coloured Overlays

 

Irlen Syndrome, visual stress, and scotopic sensitivity are just some of the names that describe blurring of text, movement on the page as well as general discomfort when reading. You may have difficulty tracking letters and words, or suffer from headaches when reading for long periods of time. Coloured overlays can help, as they reduce contrast on the page and can improve clarity.

Everyone is different and has a different colour that works for them. It may be worth having an overlay assessment at the Indigo Dyslexia Centre to find out which colour is best for you.
