Uncle George always wore rose tinted sunglasses. He not only likes them, but uses them for reading. I asked him once why he does this. He told me he could read better with them on!
He has dyslexia and somehow made the connection between color tinting and being able to read better.
The newest research shows that children with reading problems, such as dyslexia, can be helped by using color. With so many free on line books it would be simple to use colored paper such as light pink, yellow, or tan to print out reading material. If your child has difficulty reading, I would let your child read several passages on different colored paper. Your child will tell you which color is the easiest to read.
I did this experiment myself and found that print on light pink paper was the easiest to read.
