Who Can Be Helped

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/HD)

There is confusion and controversy over using medication to treat ADD/HD. Conflicting information has led to under-recognition as well as over-diagnosis and over-treatment. According to the experts, almost half of all children in the country with ADD/HD are not receiving appropriate care. As many as a third of those identified as having attention deficit disorder may be mislabeled and can be helped by the Irlen Method. The characteristics of those who can be helped are:

  • Problems concentrating when reading or writing
  • Easily distracted when reading or writing
  • Distracted when under fluorescent lights
  • Daydreams in class
  • Problems staying on task with academic work
  • Problems starting academic tasks
