Meet one of the members

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.
