Kathleen Geaney – Screener/Diagnostician

Kathleen Geaney – Screener/Diagnostician

Kathleen Geaney graduated as a Home Economics teacher in 1979. She retired from teaching, having worked full time in education for 34 years. Kathleen taught Home Economics, Nutrition, Food Science, Craft and Design, Textiles, Childcare, Sociology as well as Social Personal and Health Education to all levels. She has held Assistant Principal Post and Special Duties Posts during her career. She has also worked with the State Examinations Commission as an Advising Examiner and Superintendent at State Examinations. She volunteers in the Citizens Information Service in Cork and has worked as a Home School Liaison Officer both on a voluntary basis.

Kathleen discovered Irlen by seeing first-hand the benefits of Irlen lenses in the classroom.

I was not aware that these lenses had any particular significance for this student until she mislaid them, and it became obvious that she perceived the printed page very differently without her Irlen lenses.

Kathleen developed a keen interest in Irlen Syndrome and was trained as a Screener in 2003, by Irlen Diagnostician Marita McGeady. She has since been screening both adults and children in the Munster area and finds the work extremely rewarding.

Kathleen was trained by Marita McGeady as an Irlen Diagnostician in 2022. “Training as a Diagnostician has increased my interest and fascination with the Irlen Story. Irlen Filters makes life easier, calmer, and more comfortable”.

Kathleen hopes that Irlen Syndrome will soon be more widely recognised especially in the areas of Health and Education.

The Power of Colour can change a Life!
