I am curious if anyone else has had experience with this: we have a couple

concerns that computer monitors (particularly our new LCDs) are making
things more difficult for them - they may not be consciously aware of the
screen refreshing, but it seems to have an effect (increased facial tics,
Default settings on our CRTs are 60Hz, and I have been able to adjust them
up to 100Hz. LCDs will not accept higher than 75Hz. Apparently this may not
be high enough to avoid side effects when these students use computers.
Is anyone aware of filters or other options for these students? Any similar
experiences out there?
