The Irlen Method involves the use of coloured overlays and Irlen Spectral Filters worn as glasses and contact lenses which have been shown to eliminate the effects of visual stress and visual fragmentation. This technology can improve reading fluency, comfort, comprehension, attention and concentration while reducing light sensitivity. This is not a method of reading instruction. It is a colour-based technology that filters out the offensive light waves, so the brain can accurately process visual information. Everyone’s brain is different and the key to success is determining the exact colour needed.
Coloured tinted lenses provided by others are not the same as Irlen Spectral Filters provided by the Irlen Method. Only certified Irlen Diagnosticians are trained to determine the specific frequencies to optimise performance from an almost limitless selection of filters.
The Irlen Method is a non-invasive, patented technology that uses colored overlays and filters to improve the brain’s ability to process visual information. It is the only method scientifically proven to successfully correct the processing problems associated with Irlen Syndrome.

James Billett Clinic Director.
James has an extensive background of teaching experience including twenty as a Special Needs Coordinator in a Secondary School. James developed an individualised approach of investigation and intervention, based on the need to identify the barriers creating failure or to achieve of potential for the individual student; a key factor for progress is the need to learn and read effectively.
James works with all age ranges and ability levels across Britain and Europe with Irlen Syndrome, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and ADD/HD. James is able to work within the autistic spectrum.
