Becoming a PASS provider
Irlen® P.A.S.S. (Pre-Assessment for Scotopic Sensitivity) Training Course: is available for those already working "at the coalface"...teacher aides, teachers, OT's, Speech pathologists and other allied health professionals, and medical practitioners who consistently work with individuals experiencing visual stress difficulties that have been hard to resolve.
As a PASS professional, you investigate what is going on with the individual and assess whether symptoms are consistent with Irlen Syndrome and what can be done for individuals who work, or studying at  school or further education. If there is a need for further testing, you refer to this clinic or to the nearest Irlen Diagnostician/Screener, who will conduct further testing.

this is a 4 hour presentation. The training is free but test materials must be paid for.

Becoming an Irlen Screener
In addition to above, Irlen® Screeners help determine whether colour will make a difference.  You provide coloured overlays as a temporary measure  and you refer individuals with Irlen Syndrome to  the nearest Diagnostician.
