What is the best coloured paper to use for individuals with Irlen Syndrome?

The Irlen/Dyslexia Centre in Australia recommends using light blue Reflex paper for handouts and worksheets. This helps reduce stress, fatigue and headaches for people with Irlen Syndrome. Individuals with Irlen Syndrome see the printed page differently from those with normal vision and must constantly adapt to distortions appearing on the printed page. Using a light blue coloured paper may assist individuals when reading words on a page.
