Visual Stress/ Irlen syndrome screening


Visual Stress/ Irlen syndrome screening

Meares-Irlen syndrome, commonly known as Visual Stress, is a sensitivity to visual patterns, particularly stripes. In some cases it can cause visual perceptual problems, which interfere with reading, and the symptoms can occur despite normal vision, so it is often falsely diagnosed as dyslexia.

A Visual Stress screener is an essential test in both the Dyslexia diagnosis and Access arrangements assessments.
