Irlen tinted lenses for My daughter
Organized by: Corrie Boyles
August 01, 2016
My 10 year old daughter has high functioning autism as well as Irlen Syndrome. Irlen Syndrome is a visual perception problem that has to do with how the brain processes light and color. This affects her ability to focus at school, balance, coordination, as well as reading and reading comprehension. Imagine trying to read while someone is moving the page; this is what it is like for a child with Irlen Syndrome. The treatment for this is the use of specially tinted lenses in addition to special color overlays after an extensive evaluation. Unfortunately, the evaluation and tinting are not covered by ANY insurance and is very costly. I am a single parent trying to help my daughter be successful in school. Any help is appreciated.
