Some young people struggle to learn due to unidentified learning and processing difficulties such as Irlen Syndrome & dyslexia.
We screen young people in the Central North Island region for visual, auditory and learning processing difficulties such as Irlen syndrome, a common visual processing disorder which makes reading difficult and stressful.
To date we have screened over 1200 young people for these issues, with around one third being identified with learning challenges, including Irlen Syndrome. Those with visual issues have been provided with specialist diagnosis, eye testing and corrective glasses at no charge, and as a result have made remarkable improvements in their reading ability, enjoyment in learning, and most importantly gained confidence and better self-esteem.
We are a charitable trust that aims to identify and support young people who are struggling at school due to visual, auditory or learning processing difficulties. We work collaboratively with schools and other community groups to ensure that young people have the resources they need to reach their true potential.
