"I have known Juanetta for many years and found her to be an excellent screener. As a Family Liaison Officer in a primary school and as a parent of child with Irlen Syndrome I have been impressed with how she is able to put both children and adults at ease and guide them through the process. She has many years experience and knows exactly how to make the process easy. For anyone who might have Irlens I would recommend you get Juanetta to screen you and you never know it could change your life!."
We have been in communication for a while now, as I have a very anxious boy who has ASD., He attends mainstream and was doing ok, He struggled trying to grasp reading also struggling with writing things down (very ASD traits and now we know very Irlen traits too),
He started to have major anxiety issues with the new school building.The behaviour within school deteriorated, anxiety and school refusa occuredl. We believed it to be a change of building and it now being two storey, Well after the conversations we had with the screener and my son he finally agreed to testing, Not sure who was more surprised his dad, Juanetta or I !!!! He was made to feel welcome, loved the carved animals she showed him (which actually started a conversation about the fact the finer details were 'fuzzy' ). She allowed him breaks to walk around, chat, even a bit of banter (which is unheard of recently). After the assessment we discovered he does have severe Irlen tendencies and on reflection the bright light, white classrooms, white tables, white corridors white hall and the lighting may have been a huge factor in his change of behaviour and heightened anxiety. We moved our other son who is doing much better but we will be having an assessment for him very soon . A very detailed report too. Thank you.
