How Colored Overlays for Reading Can Help You Cope with Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a relatively common learning disorder that affects about 10% of the world’s population. It causes the individual to have problems with reading and writing. Letters and words change around, disappear, and change in other ways. Some research has found that color overlays for dyslexia can be effective when it comes to coping with these visual impairments.

At See it Right!, we use color to filter the light so that the text appears clearer and the words and letters are seen correctly. When using the plastic, the student’s visual-perceptual problem is either diminished or eliminated. Some adults can struggle with this condition, however, it is typically diagnosed in elementary or secondary school. People with this condition may struggle to learn how to read written text due to difficulties with phonological processing. The good news is that research has advanced to a point where we have different ways of helping individuals who might be struggling with these symptoms. Colored overlays can be an effective way of providing support for these individuals. It may help reduce the visual stress and anxiety experienced when distorted print is seen. If this is the problem, this intervention will allow them to improve reading skills.

Visual Dyslexia

Here is an excerpt of an article by Dr. Marie Carbo:
