Why do dyslexics Have Problems Reading on Paper?

It is because of a problem called Scroptic Sensitivity

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

Symptoms of Scrotpic Sensitivity:-

  • Head aches
  • Tiredness
  • 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 scrotpic sensitivity is to place coloured overlays over the page of writing to see if you or the student can focus on the word better than normal. Try with a number of colours like:-

  • Blue
  • Pink
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Orange

There is a quick and easy test for the types of colours on the next page. Just see which colour and easy to look at.

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.
