Light Sensitivity

Asfedia or Scroptic Sensitivity is when the brain and the difficulty to see the words
and letters on the paper, in the depth of sensitivity needed.

The symtoms of scrotpic sensitivity or Asfedia:-
 Head aches

 Glare on the paper
 seeing the words move or vibrating like letters and words
 seeing river like images flowing around the page
 Not being able to focus on the words

The best way to test for the Scroptic Sensitivity or Asfedia is to place coloured
overlays over the page of writing to if you or the student can focus on the words
better than normal. Try with a number of colours like:-
 Blue
 Pink
 Red
 Yellow
 Orange

To help to beat Scroptic Sensitivity coloured lenses in glasses or coloured eye
contact lenses are used.
Not every Dyslexic has Scroptic Sensitivity. Only 4% of the Dyslexic population
have the condition.

With the colour the reading should looks clear to read. The letters in the words
should: –
 Not appear to be splitting away
 Not appear blurred
 Not appear to be hazed
 Not to have a glare

The word should look absolutely clear. The words should stand out from each other.
