  • The Irlen Institute The Irlen Syndrome is a type of perceptual processing problem related to sensitivity to lights, glare, patterns, colors, and contrast. This type of perceptual processing disorder affects 12-14% of the population; this number increases to almost 50% in the autistic population.

    Behavior may provide you with an insight into whether your child suffers from sensitivity to light, misperceptions, or inhibition problems.  Often, the behavior is misinterpreted and is not understood to be an attempt to reduce the offending environmental stimuli.  Instead, it may look like stereotyped mannerisms, hyperactivity, finger mannerisms, or an unusual interest in stimuli and/or sensory preoccupation.  A sample of some behaviors which may indicate perceptual problems are:

  • Looking in a series of short glances

  • Looking away from visual targets

  • Squinting or looking down

  • Finger flicking

  • Sideway glances

  • Poor eye contact

  • Rubbing or pushing on eyes

  • Mesmerized by colors, patterns, or light
