Aisling O’Sullivan – Screener

Aisling O’Sullivan – Screener

I’m Aisling, a primary school teacher living in Limerick, Ireland. I am currently completing a Master of Education as a Literacy Specialist with Stranmillis University and have also completed exams to become a registered dyslexia specialist teacher with the British Dyslexia Association. I own the business Dyslexia Support Limerick. We offer evidence-based literacy instruction to those with dyslexic-type difficulties.

Through my work as a dyslexia specialist, I came across Irlen Syndrome. I immediately recognised the symptoms in a number of my students and was eager to become a screener. I see Irlen Screening as an essential part of the puzzle of supporting those with reading difficulties. I have seen first-hand how the use of coloured overlays has enabled students with Irlen Syndrome to focus and concentrate on the print, resulting in improvements in their reading, motivation, concentration, and self-esteem.
