Reading Rulers

FINALIST: GLOBAL EDUCATION PRODUCT OF THE YEAR 2017
Eye Level Reading Rulers were created by Crossbow Education for visual stress sufferers to combine page tinting with tracking support. They are convenient and unobtrusive, and preferred by most children to full page coloured overlays. Research from Birkbeck College (London University) showed that they can increase reading speed by up to 32% . As well as being a key element of our visual stress collection, which won the UK SEN product of the year award in 2014,  the Eye Level Reading Ruler was a finalist for the global Educational Product of the Year at the GESS Education awards in March 2017.

Our reading rulers are the only ones on the market manufactured in eco-friendly PET, and are of the highest quality and clarity. All Crossbow reading rulers are measured throughout production for conformity to sample colours produced directly from the research findings of the dept of Visual Science at Essex University. There are inferior copies of our reading rulers on the market, so look for the Crossbow brand for your guarantee of quality and clarity.

Peer-reviewed research on our coloured overlays and reading rulers  from a sample of 106 typical primary school children showed that "All but four children had reduced reading times with one of the reading aids and all but one reported their aid improved the perceived visual clarity of the text" (from the abstract: A comparison of the effects of the colour and size of coloured overlays on young children’s reading.

(Arch), Ph.D.) Department of Psychological Sciences, Birkbeck, University of London, London, UK. Vision Research, in press as of March 2019). The research findings also showed that there was very little difference between page overlays and reading rulers in terms of reading speed improvement.
