During the 2018-2020 school year we conducted a case study of an underachieving, unidentified twice-exceptional student in an effort to learn about one student's educational path in the Coachella Valley.
In 2017, with the help of the Irlen Syndrome Foundation, we raised money to pay for remediation and voluntarily screened an entire grade level at Coral Mountain Academy in Coachella, identifying Irlen Syndrome in 15% of the students. This rate is consistent with general population statistics.
