Scotopic Sensitivity Testing / Irlen syndrome
Just because your child seems inattentive, rushes through activities, makes careless errors, daydreams, or seems unmotivated doesn’t necessarily mean ADD/HD is to blame. Does your child avoid doing homework? Give up easily? Rush through assignments? All of these are coping strategies children use to deal with academic difficulties which may be the result of Irlen Syndrome, not attention deficit disorder. Telling a child to pay more attention or keep trying may not be helpful. This may only contribute to your child feeling dumb, stupid, or bad.

As many as one third of people diagnosed with attention deficit disorder may suffer from Irlen Syndrome. Irlen Spectral Filters will eliminate attention problems for this group. The Irlen Method is noninvasive and does not require the use of medication. In some cases, individuals wear Irlen Spectral Filters in addition to taking medication but may need less medication to stay focused and attentive.

We screen for Irlen’s syndrome in our office and can provide colored overlays on the same day. We refer for specialized lens filters as well.
