Part of the Visual Stress Collection: the winning product of the Education Resources Awards SEN Resource of the Year 2014!


*Please note the colours shown in the pictures may not be an exact representation of the colour in real life.

Coloured overlays in a range of at least ten colours are a proven, research-based solution to the visual stress problems that often occur alongside dyslexia.

Really simple to use; just remove from packaging, place over text and read.

One side of the overlay has a matt coating. Some matt coatings can reduce transparency, but coloured overlays from Crossbow Education have been subjected to stringent testing to ensure that maximum print clarity is retained while reflected light from the overlay surface has been significantly reduced. Nevertheless, some people prefer using the gloss side of the overlay.

It is helpful to assess for optimum colour first using our Visual Stress Assessment Pack, as different people find different colours work best for them.

Available individually, as packs of 5 or packs of 10, in single or mixed colours.  Each overlay has rounded corners and measures 216 x 298 mm.
