Scotopic Sensitivity, Irlen Syndrome ( whatever you want to call it.) Both my son's have it which is no surprise. Both are going to get fitted with Irlen lenses. We did Nick's screening today. This is hereditary and the Dr. said that they can skip testing me .......it is incredibly obvious where they inherited it from.
We have suspected this for a couple years probably but nick wanted to try college and see how he would do. Towards the end of the first semester he said he was ready to go to Irlen for testing. Ben was on board after Nick was diagnosed and he was diagnosed today. Glad to be getting help and praying the Irlen lenses will make a huge difference for both of them.
Very eye opening for all of us as it answers a lot of my learning issues as well. Reading, driving, filling out forms etc. are very difficult for me and I had no idea it was because of visual processing.
Anyhow, I share in hopes to help others. So if you have questions, I would be happy to answer them. This is where we started. www.irlen.com
