How do you screen for Irlen® Syndrome?
Irlen® Screenings are efficient and economical. The testing and
remediation can be administered individually in an hour, and results
are immediately known. The Irlen® Reading Perceptual Scale can
be administered alone or as a part of a test battery. The Irlen®
Method is currently being used in schools throughout the world as
well as in clinic and private practice settings.
How do you become trained to administer the
Irlen® Screening Test? To become a Certified Irlen® Screener, you must participate
in a two-day workshop with a Certified Irlen® Trainer. Day 1 includes
theory and history, test administration and interpretation, and remediation
procedures using Irlen® Spectral Colored Overlays. Day 2 is a
practicum in which participants administer, score, and interpret Irlen®
screenings with actual clients. Certification as an Irlen® Screener
does not permit you to train others as Irlen® Screeners.
Who qualifies to be trained to screen for
Educators, Reading Specialists, Special Education Specialists, School
nurses, Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists,
Counselors, Teachers, and Diagnosticians can qualify to be trained
as Irlen® Screeners. Certain other professionals may also qualify
on a limited basis. To register for the Training Workshop submit a
