The Irlen Method can be life changing for those individuals struggling with Irlen Syndrome. A person with Irlen Syndrome may have difficulty with perceptual processing. Often these individuals have 20/20 vision or can be corrected to 20/20 vision. When identified and remediated,  students' have passed proficiency exams that they previously failed, fluency and comprehension improve and many state that they no longer have headaches. These are just a few of the reasons that teachers and other professionals become certified. The Irlen Method is a piece of the puzzle that may be missing.

Who-Training is recommended for Resource Specialists, Reading Specialists, Psychologists, Counselors, Classroom Teachers, School Nurses, Social Workers, Chiropractors, Occupational Therapists, and Health Professionals. Requirements: A bachelor’s degree or equivalent, plus 2- years’ experience working in your field.
