A new beginning for me now!

I never imagined that a new beginning would be around the turn for me but after a touch four year in my Irlen Journey, I found it hard to let go of the last four years of hell but I found a lovely man called Alan Penn who is willing to help me and support through it and my campaign which has led to me to be nomination for the disability Wales awards for my work for Irlen syndrome and the St David’s awards too.

 

It’s amazing that I have got national media interested in spread the word about Irlen syndrome, which is a great achievement for people with Irlen syndrome, Yes it an achievement that well worth it.

 

I am determined to carry on the fight to get Irlen syndrome recognised in schools and the NHS as it is important that people are aware of Irlen syndrome, because colour can transform lives.

Some people call me an inspiration to other countries like Canada and people with Irlen syndrome, which is incredible to be called an inspiration and a role model after all I have been through.

Having someone believing in me and my campaign for people with Irlen syndrome means the world to me

so Thank-you Alan Penn for a part in my irlen journey now and make it easy taken my campaign forward .

An totally amazing day !

I never  imagined that I would get the national media interested in spread the word about Irlen syndrome , So I contact the BBC Wales News and they would happy to do an interview with me.

Last Friday I was interview alongside Alan Penn clinic director , which was amazing to spread the word about Irlen syndrome.

It was the first time I meet Alan Penn and worked him  he so amazing  and thank-you for doing my assessment .

I would like thank Sophie and Jess from the BBC Wales News for helping spread the word about Irlen syndrome.

 

How people think Opticians can provide Irlen services!

Recently some people have asked me what is Irlen syndrome ? it made me realise that not many people know about Irlen syndrome or what it is. It a shame really because it could be themselves or they child that has it , but some people think if they go to the opticians that they can provide an Irlen screening or lenses when they can’t because they are not trained in the Irlen method.

It really annoyed professionals and ambassadors that people still think that Opticians can provide Irlen services when it not ever the same .

So, when are people going to realise only one Irlen method or two and that Opticians are not Irlen specialists .

so, please don’t make people suffer by saying go to the opticians when it not true it not fair on them.

Please if irlen is present go to a Irlen specialist not the opticians!

 

 

 

Reflecting on this year so far!

Well it’s been one of amazing experiences and opportunity’s like going to parliament, which is an achievement that will go down in Irlen history again, I never imagined that when I set up my own campaign called the voice for people with Irlen syndrome that it would have made a big different for people with Irlen syndrome and the start of important people listen to us

I certainly would have done this without the support of my AM Dawn Bowden and MP Gerald Jones, recently gain the support of my councillor Rhonda Braithwaite

 

This year is so amazing so far for people with Irlen syndrome and for me as I have done my first own Irlen project

 

I am very fortunate thoroughly my campaign to be gain support all the way.

what part of coloured paper don’t people understand?

Once again, the issue over a simple thing such as coloured paper is surface again, it so stupid when it makes a different to a child learn and future now, it like ask a person in wheelchair to walk when they can’t so same with a child with Irlen syndrome they can’t use white paper so they need their coloured paper

 

It makes me so angry because I know that how much of different coloured paper as make to my learning so stop being stupid people started given children’s with Irlen syndrome they coloured paper as they deserve to have a brighter future now.

 

So, why make it hard for a child with Irlen syndrome to learn at end of day just a change of colour which is so simple too.
