As someone else with a personal interest, rather than professional medical knowledge, you definitely need to find out more about what has been recommended and why. There is more than one type of photosensitive eplilepsy, all classified as PPR - some seizures are caused by flickering light at a particular frequency (refresh rate) and some can be colour (also frequency, but in a different sense). Flourescent lighting is another source of flickering light - presumably at 50Hz, which could potentially be changed. We have replaced some of our flourescent tubes with LED "bulbs" in the standard light fittings. Having read a bit more about it, it's not necessarily the projector bulb that needs changing - it could be the classroom background lighting that needs to be changed. I have a lot of sympathy with trying to avoid anything that could cause stigma, but on the other hand, there will be plenty of other children wearing glasses, eye patches, hearing aids etc, so it's not the worst thing in the world. I would have thought it is less stigmatising than having a seizure in class.
Just my thoughts...

If you disconnect the right connection from the VGA (Red I'd guess) that will make it go blue.

We had a student having issues with our refurbished parts of the building and being unwell and when I left they were still discussing it as they were thinking it was the new T5 lighting fitted in it that was the issue.

If you are referring to tinted glasses, this could be Irlens syndrome, Home, more than dyslexia. Many dyslexics have Irlens syndrome, but they are not the same thing.
