Sydney Irlen Dyslexia Centre
The Sydney Irlen Dyslexia Centre assesses children and adults for underlying perceptual issues which contribute to difficulties in the areas of: Reading, Spelling, Concentration, Behaviour, Motivation and Self-Esteem.
An assessment will determine if the perceptual condition, Irlen Syndrome/Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome (SSS), is present. This is a genetic, light sensitivity condition which affects 10-20% of the population and can cause learning difficulties, concentration issues, eyestrain, headaches, migraines, fatigue, frustration and depth perception difficulties.
Should an assessment confirm the condition, Irlen Spectral Filter Lenses are prescribed to eliminate, or reduce significantly, a person’s perceptual difficulties and will allow them to process visual information more effectively.
Appointments can be made by contacting the Sydney Irlen Dyslexia Centre.
A referral is not necessary.
