October 20-24 is Irlen Syndrome Awareness Week. Many of the students who struggle in math may have Irlen Syndrome.
Marge Harris is a math intervention teacher at St. Piux X High School in Houston and an Irlen Syndrome screener. She is extremely knowledgeable of the effects of Irlen Syndrome on math intervention students and how to best help them. She addressed a group at CAMT (Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching) on this very subject. Throughout the week we will share video clips from this presentation.
