9780312320287: The Light Barrier: Understanding the Mystery of Irlen Syndrome and Light-based Reading Difficulties

Rhonda Stone's children were both struggling in school with reading. By the fourth grade, her oldest began coming home almost daily with bright red eyes, fatigue, and headaches. A chance encounter directed the family to a controversial condition being diagnosed worldwide-Irlen Syndrome.

Now, this journalist and mother of two shares all she learned about the condition and methods to identify and address it. Completely revised and featuring a new chapter, the paperback version includes important new information about the connection between reading difficulties and this highly prevalent, commonly overlooked, but readily addressed problem.

About the Author:

Since discovering her own daughter's struggle with reading and Irlen Syndrome, Rhonda Stone has become one of the nation's foremost advocates for both Irlen Syndrome sufferers and people with reading difficulties in general. Known for her ability to translate medical jargon into lay-person terms, Stone is a featured public speaker, most recently addressing the Irlen International Conference in Vancouver, the New England Area Association of Irlen Practitioners in Boston, and the Texas Conference of Education in Austin.

Review:

"I commend Ms. Stone's book: it is needed and it is timely. She has an acute insight into the problems that children with this syndrome face and is well qualified to act as their advocate.'
--Arnold J. Wilkins, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and author of Visual Stress

"An important exploration . . . Clearly written, with a passionate yet no-nonsense approach to this fascinating subject. I hope that it will be widely read and that many more people with this condition will be helped as a result of this book.'
--Bruce J. Evans, B.Sc., Ph.D., FCOptom, DCLP, FAAO, Institute of Optometry, and author of Dyslexia and Vision

"A story that not only needs to be told, but holds a great interest to parents of children with reading problems and for the professional community."
--Helen Irlen, Executive Director of Irlen Institute International HQ and author of Reading by the Colors


"A story that not only needs to be told, but holds a great interest to parents of children with reading problems..." (Helen Irlen, Executive Director of Irlen Institute International HQ and author)
