    My centre gave me both although the overlay is a5.

    The centre said that they will pay for perhaps 2 overlays and a reading ruler.

    I already have a blue ruler and a pink overlay.

    I am looking at getting some I think pink puirpel and blue work best for me.

    Should I buy on amazon?

    I found a shop whihc charge 4£ for an a4 overlay is this good?

    Have you actually been tested properly? I was given the overlay. Have never been given or indeed bought a coloured ruler.

    I have both in blue, and personally I found the best for me was the A4 overlay, as you don't need to move it as you read. Not sure about prices though, I get mine from my mum as she is a dyslexia specialist.

    They said that I have Irlens syndreom or something like that.

    I have got a purple one and it is so much better.

    Purple blue and pink are the best fro me. Oh nice

    The colours are really helpful, there is an extention you can get on Google Chrome that changes the background colour, called nOverlay, and also you can change the background colour on Word, which is very helpful for me!
