Have just been told that my niece has been given a coloured overlay by her 6th form college 'because of her dyslexia'. She's in Y12; just got 9x GCSEs at grades 9-7 (A*-A in old money) and has weak spelling (not abysmal, just seems a bit weak). Do you think this is just intended as a confidence booster? I'm not aware that she's been tested, certainly not by an optician. To give a student a label in this way seems a bit over the top. She's enjoying A levels (sciences) so no issues there.
