A problem with the brain’s ability to process visual information

Irlen Syndrome is a perceptual processing problem which distorts words and numbers and makes reading difficult.

This has an effect on a readers comprehension skills, their confidence and powers of concentration.


Identifying these problems early in a childs development means that appropriate interventions can be put in place, with consequential long term educational benefits.


Education Pathways has qualified "irlen" screeners who can undertake a full diagnostic assessment and advise on appropriate interventions.

15%, or 1 in 6 of the general public display Irlen Syndrome symptoms.

However it is even more frequent in certain groups such as those who have

  • reading and/or learning problems (46%)
  • ADHD and Autism (33%)
  • suffered brain injury (30%)
