Description

Winner of the Education Resources Awards SEN Product of the Year 2014. An 11-year old boy, who was still unable to blend CVC words, was being assessed for Visual Stress using the Visual Stress Assessment Pack. When given a double blue overlay he sat back and said: “Oh! Is that what you mean by a word? Can I start learning to read now?”

Visual Stress Assessment Pack by Crossbow Education - School Edition - Revised. Help your students or child reach their full potential - eliminate visual stress in the classroom. Suitable for all schools and children ages 6-18. Visual Stress assessment should be carried out for all weak readers by the end of key stage one. The visual stress assessment pack is the ideal tool, as the assessment can be carried out by non-specialists and will identify the children (5%, or around ten in every average-sized primary school), whose reading is severely impeded by distorted print or other symptoms. The children who just need a reading ruler or coloured overlay to increase their reading speed by 25% or more can be quickly identified with the Visual Stress Assessment Pack.
