Learning difficulties associated with conditions such as Dyslexia & Dyspraxia are often the result of Visual Stress.
(also known as “Mears-Irlen” syndrome) and Visual Dyslexia can cause symptoms such as movement of print, rivers running through sentences, concentration problems, headaches & eyestrain.
Colour has been found to be hugely beneficial in alleviating the symptoms caused by Visual Stress for many years. This has been confirmed by the evidence based research carried out by the Medical Council, the leading Government funded research body in the UK.
Visual Stress and Visual Dyslexia has been found to in exist in cases of:
- Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, AD(H)D & Autistic Spectral Disorders (ASD).
- Photosensitive Migraine.
- Photosensitive Epilepsy
- Head Injuries
- Multiple Sclerosis
We have over 10 years of experience in this field working closely with students with specific learning difficulties (such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dysclaculi, Dysgraphia, AD(H)D and Autistic Spectral Disorders) from Lougborough University (DANS Dept) & other institutions.
We regularly work with Schools, Colleges, Teachers, SENCO's, GP's and Educational Psychologists.
