“Dyslexia is a neurological difference and can have a significant impact during education, in the workplace and in everyday life. As each person is unique, so is everyone’s experience of dyslexia. It can range from mild to severe, and it can co-occur with other learning differences. It usually runs in families and is a life-long condition.” (British Dyslexia Association, 2020)

If any of this list sounds familiar, we are here to help. The first port of call would be to book an eye examination with one of our Optometrist’s. From here, we could prescribe some tools to assist which may include coloured overlays or tinted spectacles or refer you to our sister company VisionCare Development for an assessment with Ruth Perrott and possibly some Vision Therapy.
