After decades of revolutionizing the treatment of dyslexia through the use of colored lenses, educational pioneer Helen Irlen has turned her attention to children and adults who suffer from other learning disabilities. The Irlen Revolution examines the author’s unique program for helping people with ADHD/ADD, Asperger’s syndrome, autism, depth perception problems, head injuries, strokes, and a host of other conditions that affect learning. The Irlen Revolution begins with an overview of learning disabilities and a look at standard treatments. It then examines the Irlen Method and explores the scientific basis of the program. Finally, the author discusses the individual disorders—what they are, and how the Irlen approach may be used to treat them successfully. An extensive resource section provides additional guidance for readers who want to learn more about the program. When 60 Minutes featured a dyslexic child being “cured” with the Irlen Method, the world was introduced to a safe and effective tool to combat dyslexia. Now the battle lines have been expanded, and many more people can benefit from The Irlen Revolution.

"I don’t need to be scared of reading anymore" 17-year-old woman describing the use of coloured overlays. Reading Through Colour tells the story of the discovery and development of the use of coloured overlays and tinted glasses to help overcome reading difficulty, which can sometimes result in almost miraculous improvements. Arnold Wilkins, the scientist who was one of the first to provide the evidence that coloured filters can work, explains how sufferers are often unaware of the effects of visual stress, having no way of realising that others see print differently. They frequently suffer headaches or migraine, but at school can be considered simply lazy Reading Through Colour explains what the overlays are and how to select them. Throughout, the voices of parents, children and adults tell how improvements in reading speed and fluency have changed their lives. Clear, "how-to" advice on testing and using overlays is included for teachers and other professionals, along with information on where to get further help and advice. "Every reading teacher needs a copy of this book and their own set of filters. Optometrists and pediatricians will also find this work to be a valuable resource. It is a ‘must read’." Alan Kwasman M.D., Behavioural Pediatrician, Associate Professor, University of California, Riversid

This is a unique book in that it not only talks about the growing concern today regarding concussions in sports, but it also offers a proven solution to mitigate or even eliminate the symptoms, when concussions don’t “just go away.” It’s called the Irlen Method. Originally developed to help struggling readers, the Irlen Method has been extremely successful in helping those with concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) lead a normal life without the pain of headaches and migraines, the strains of light sensitivity, the frustrations associated with poor academic performance, or the inability to relieve anxiety or even get a comfortable night’s sleep. This book also serves as a guide to parents and coaches, offering ways in which to detect concussion symptoms and how to discuss the issues with youngsters who don’t want to say anything because they want to get right back out on the field or on the court, despite the pain. Stories, and some sobering statistics, bring the seriousness of concussions to light. We emphasize the need for strong communication between parents, coaches and young athletes to prevent possible concussions and to understand when they do occur so that the injured player receives proper attention and testing. The book then explains how the Irlen Method can help eliminate the symptoms and concludes with a number of enlightening and very encouraging stories from athletes and from our military heroes who have also sustained concussions or TBI and have recovered from debilitating symptoms. Concussions cannot be eliminated in sports, or elsewhere. We can certainly make stronger efforts to avoid them through proper training and equipment to protect ourselves, but accidents will happen. The benefit of this book is learning about concussions and knowing that there is something available that can prevent the long lasting effects.
