  • 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 Irlen® Syndrome?
    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 completed application form, a professional resume and training fee. If you are not accepted for the training workshop, the entire fee will be returned.
