To the poster at 8:57- The simple preference of a color overlay was something my EA partner and I were talking about. She wondered if our children's digital presence online and through gadgets would have something to do with that. With the frequent glare they encounter, it makes me wonder as well.
To the poster at 8:20- I believe Dr. Irlen's work came out in the 1980's so that makes sense.
To the poster at 7:54 pm- The students that I looked at were in fifth grade, for the most part. Most students were screened using Carbo, including the two students that really seem to need it. Through Carbo testing, specific shades of a color are even recommended, but I'll be honest and say I have never administered a test before.
And I didn't mention this in the post, but that teacher that did the testing has over 20+ shades of colors and they are 8.5 x 11 in size (through Carbo). I have a several who just purchased the kind pictured in my post (smaller) through a parent/teacher store.
