Story

Financial means shouldn't be a gateway to successful remediation and intervention for Irlen Syndrome. Our individual aid scholarships for Irlen testing and Spectral Filters allow children and adults from low-income households to have access to the most successful technology available to address Irlen Syndrome. Our past scholarship recipients include youth in the juvenile justice system, disabled veterans, and former civil servants, all of whom were suffering from serious physical symptoms, such as migraines, vertigo, and severe photophobia. Missing 50 days of school because of debilitating migraines caused by extreme light sensitivity shouldn't be a reality, when a simple pair of non-invasive precision-tinted colored filters can make those migraines go away. That was the case for one scholarship recipient, and since receiving his Irlen Spectral Filters, this young man has successfully returned to school. Another recipient was completely homebound because of her Irlen Syndrome. Her light sensitivity was so severe, that she was unable to go outside during the day. With her Irlen Spectral Filters, she is beginning to enjoy re-entering the outside world again. Irlen Spectral Filters can change lives, and our scholarships ensure that those who need them most can get them, even if they can't afford them.

About the charity

The Irlen Syndrome Foundation is committed to increasing awareness of and access to solutions for a perceptual processing problem known as Irlen Syndrome. Failure to address Irlen Syndrome can result in academic failure and physical symptoms.
