I’ve read many such articles, and I don’t dispute the science, but all I can say anecdotally is that I sat in the first colourimetry assessment we went to where my daughter was asked to read random words with and without coloured lenses.
The difference in reading speed ability and most of all of confidence sold me on the glasses immediately. It was astonishing
Without them, she says the whiteboards “wobble” and she doesn’t even bother looking at what’s displayed as it gives her a headache. As her colour is magenta, no one uses this as a background during whole class teaching…they’ve all been taught to use yellow.
I don’t believe this is the same as dyslexia, it is something else, but she does also have reading spelling & working memory difficulties, and a DX of ADD and had 25% extra time plus movement breaks and a laptop for all GCSEs.
In her current apprenticeship, they’ve even ordered prescription colourimetry safety goggles for her.
