Designed to be convenient and discreet, the Eye Level Reading Ruler is a small overlay designed specifically to benefit those with Visual Stress and dyslexia. Not only does the Eye Level Reading Ruler work to reduce the symptoms of Visual Stress, it also highlights and underlines text, making it easier for the dyslexic reader to keep their place on the page they are reading.
NO OTHER SIMILAR PRODUCT COMBINES SO MUCH THAT HELPS PEOPLE - CHILDREN AND ADULTS ALIKE - WHO ARE AFFECTED BY VISUAL STRESS (Scotopic sensitivity).
Launched in 2004 to provide a user-friendly alternative for Irlen syndrome sufferers who resist using the more intrusive large overlays, these reading rulers are now in over 50% of the schools in the UK. They are the only product of their type available anywhere that COMBINE ALL THE FOLLOWING ESSENTIAL FEATURES:
1) A sufficiently wide range of colors to meet the needs of all children who will benefit from using a colored overlay product (Smith, Wilkins, British Journal of Psychology 2007)
2) Tinted strips on the edge of the ruler and not as a central “letterbox”, ensuring that context is not lost.
3) A choice of single line or paragraph depth tracking, differentiating individual needs and ensuring that fluency can be achieved while using the reading ruler.
4) One side matt coated, one side gloss; again allowing for individual preference (Wilkins, “Reading Through Colour”, Wiley 2003)
Our ten colors have been selected to provide the optimum choice between tints while also recognising the areas of the spectrum that are most frequently beneficial. There is no complicated testing procedure: If you are trying them out for the first time, get the ten colour pack and try all the colors: you will find out straight away if one of the colors makes a difference. When Pelle, our general manager, first joined the company, he obviously enough wanted to try out the overlays to see if they made any difference. When he got to the aqua one, he said it was "like putting on reading glasses"!. At 48, he discovered that he suffered from Visual Stress. Don't wait as long as he did!
