Crossbow Duo Coloured Reading Rulers
The Reading Ruler is a flexible transparent coloured plastic strip (205mm x 74mm) overprinted to divide the ruler into a 10mm transparent strip on one edge and 30mm transparent strip with tracking line on the other side. Discreet and portable, the reading ruler is made of a combination of opaque and transparent plastic that both underlines the text and highlights it in a coloured tint. Simply read the text through either of the tinted plastic strips of your selected color, and track down the page: broad strip for paragraphs; narrow strip for single lines.
These rulers combine the glare reduction benefit of reading through a coloured overlay with the guidance of a ruled line to assist tracking.
Available in 11 new colours, to match the Crossbow A4 colour overlays.
Designed to be convenient and discreet (205mm x 74mm), the Crossbow Reading Ruler is a small overlay designed specifically to benefit those with Visual Stress and dyslexia. Not only does the Eye Level Reading Ruler work to reduce the symptoms of Visual Stress, it also highlights and underlines text, making it easier for the dyslexic reader to keep their place on the page they are reading.
Launched in 2004 to provide a user-friendly alternative for Irlen Syndrome sufferers who resist using the more intrusive large overlays, these reading rulers combine the following features: -
- A sufficiently wide range of colors to meet the needs of all children who will benefit from using a colored overlay product
- Tinted strips on the edge of the ruler and not as a central “letterbox”, ensuring that context is not lost.
- A choice of single line or paragraph depth tracking, differentiating individual needs and ensuring that fluency can be achieved while using the reading ruler.
- One side matt coated, one side gloss; again allowing for individual preference
Our ten colours have been selected to provide the optimum choice between tints while also recognising the areas of the spectrum that are most frequently beneficial. There is no complicated testing procedure: If you are trying them out for the first time, get the ten colour pack and try all the colors: you will find out straight away if one of the colors makes a difference.
