Irlen Pre-Assessment for Scotopic Sensitivity or PASS is the first step to accurate diagnosis and remediation of Irlen Syndrome.
A PASS Assessment usually about 20 minutes and can be added to educational or homeschool program, reading or math remediation, tutoring, educational testing, vision screenings, therapy screenings and evaluations, and medical examinations. It may be administered by an educator, tutor, therapist, physician, parent, or support person who has participated in a 3 CE hour PASS training provided by a certified Irlen Screener or Diagnostician. Occupational therapists and social workers may receive CE hours for licensure.
PASS targets candidates for further testing using perceptual tasks and symptom checklists. This process provides valuable information to target sensory /perceptual problems impacting such tasks as reading, math, handwriting, attention/focus, as well as, contributing to sensory overload , light sensitivity esp to fluorescent or bright lights, contrast patterns, using a computer monitor, visual distortions, anxieties , and chronic migraines/headaches.
College students and high school students may be trained in introduction to PASS testing and we will provide mentoring on science projects and research projects related to learning, light and lighting, sensory processing, brain function, environmental stress, and neuroscience.
