Could this be over selling ???????????????
Perhaps the lack of any guarantee suggests the answer.
I had an Irlen screener post a comment on my " Post a Review" page.
Well you can't beat these claims of helping 97% of dyslexics out of the first 300 tested . I thought there were other reasons people were dyslexic than visual problems. This Vet saw that dyslexics had asymmetrical faces and went from there.
"Ninety-seven percent of the initial 300 study participants reported reading improvement in their symptoms of dyslexia."
Just FYI . It is fairly well known that dyslexics that take tests to determine a baseline and then retake the rest as an indication of how much improvement is made generally show improvement whether they use an intervention or not. People who take the same test twice usually do better the second time.
I was surprised to find out that 80% of learning problems are visual . Try this home based course for $269 and find out.
"You might be surprised to learn that over 80% of children with learning disabilities who struggle at school have VISUAL DEVELOPMENT PROBLEMS, which can be dramatically helped by the right techniques, which can give them the visual and memory skills they need to overcome their learning problems and improve their reading, writing and spelling."
Again over selling ??????????? At least they do put the fact that there is no guarantee where you can read it.
