I agree with some of the other comments - it's not really fair to judge Irlen when the students were handed out overlays, and do not appear to have been properly screened for the correct color - and YES, if there is a reading difficulty present, it must still be remediated once the color is chosen. The difference is - it now CAN be SUCCESSFULLY remediated so that it is not an ongoing struggle. I don't sell overlays for monetary gain - I buy them and sell them (often at a loss) to the students I screen. The screening fee barely covers the time I put in. Please go out and visit some screeners, diagnosticians, and successfully and properly screened students before you make this judgement.
