Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Through the Irlen Method, certain adults and children with chronic learning problems can improve their reading abilities, according to a study by Irlen, an educational psychologist. Her treatment employs a series of colored overlays and lenses which remove certain obstacles from the reading process, thereby permitting those who suffer from Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome (SSS) to improve or eliminate their sight-reading problems. Irlen's book is the first to describe, in lay terms, what the treatment consists of, how it works, and what its limitations are. She includes a color-keyed self-test, as well as a list of clinics which offer SSS screening and treatment. Her book is recommended for all types of libraries.--Samuel T. Huang, Northern Illinois Univ. Libs., DeKalb
