Irlen Syndrome can cause headaches and nausea
A teenage girl came to see us today.. she is doing Advanced English and Extension English. She also has Irlen Syndrome (just found out today).. in Advanced English, she gets no support from the teacher and is struggling.. in Extension English, the teacher provides support for her and she is doing really well. This girl gets a headache and nauseous everyday when she has to work on white paper (which is the norm). She was able to do our tasks, and read successfully without getting a headache when she used the appropriately tinted overlay. She will return for the lenses and these will make her life much easier at school. If your child gets a headache or feels sick regularly at school, then please consider Irlen Syndrome.
