  1. I have a 10 yr old daughter who struggles with certain issues at school. I have tried for 6 years to find help for her. Her school couldnt find anything wrong with her using the dyslexia battery, a series of 50 or so tests..., her pediatrician offered not much more help. I have done some research over the years and have finally found a website discribing my daughters disability to unscramble the "gas fumes" on the page, to unscrambe the order of the words as they are written or typed on white paper, to comprehend and retain the information she has read, to learn multiplication facts and retain them until test time, same with spelling words ............it is called MEARES-IRLEN SYNDROM. Children are often misdiagnosed or like in my case, no one knows about this and it is very difficult for a small child to tell you what they see on paper or the white boards, because it looks normal to them, this is all they know. My daughter is having difficulty with spelling, reading, and comprehension. We were given a set of blue and green matte color strips last year to use briefly in class but this year we have not been given those and her grades are low in those areas. I did some reading tonight and found a website that may help us as well as your child.........www.visual-stress.com. I am purchsing a color strip set to use at home for homework. Please let me know if anyone else has had any sucess with this. Thank you so much, Monica
