Dyslexia and Reading Difficulties
Many children and young people who are considered to have behaviour & reading difficulties and / or have been excluded from school may benefit from coloured overlays and lenses. Some people experience distortions when they look at certain materials, particularly text. The distortions of text include blurring, movement of letters, word doubling, shadowy lines, shapes or colours on the page and flickering. Coloured overlays are sheets of translucent or transparent coloured plastic that are placed over a page of a book as to colour the text beneath without interfering with its clarity. Coloured overlays and lenses reduce the distortions of the text and can help people to read better and more quickly.
