Jennifer Owens is 25 and has Irlen Syndrome, which is a visual perceptual problem that results in distortions of the environment and print. She has to wear special purple Irlen filters to rectify the problem.
“I joined, not only to raise awareness for my disability, which is not widely known, but also to share experiences with others. It took a long time for my disability to be diagnosed, during which was a scary time for me and my family. A group like this that can help raise the awareness of different disabilities and the help and support out there is great. It has already brought great change.’
Jennifer recently gave a presentation to the Group about Irlen Sydrome.
