Revised edition of the breakthrough treatment for dyslexia. This new edition of "Reading by the Colors" includes significant breakthroughs and new applications for use with the Irlen Method to aid in the treatment of reading disabilities. If you, your child or someone you know has a reading disability, there may be a quick and effective solution to this all-too-common problem. Educational psychologist, Helen Irlen, has developed a revolutionary new technique that can improve or entirely alleviate reading difficulties for approximately one out of every five people who are affected by such a problem. Ten years ago, Helen Irlen was studying methods of helping adults with chronic learning disorders. She noticed that certain adults showed marked improvement in their reading abilities when a transparent coloured acetate sheet covered their reading material. For the next five years, Irlen worked on and refined her discovery, developing and patenting a series of coloured lenses that when worn by people who suffered from Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome (SSS) either improved or eliminated sight-reading problems. "Reading by the Colors" is the first book to explain in easy to understand language just what the Irlen method is, what it can do to improve reading skills and what it cannot do. It, also, includes a colour-keyed self-test. For millions of children and adults who suffer from dyslexia and other related reading problems, "Reading by the Colors" may provide the first glimpse of a permanent solution.
