It’s Painful to Watch Your Child with Dyslexia Suffer

Nothing is more hurtful and difficult than watching your child with dyslexia go to school and feel like a failure. It’s painful to watch him curl up inside himself, embarrassed, frustrated, and not understanding why learning has to be such a struggle. Why reading comes so easily to the other kids and not to him. She may also have trouble with numbers, called dyscalculia, or with writing, known as dysgraphia. She may have ADHD and experience difficulty focusing in class. No matter which learning disability (I call them learning challenges because they don’t have to be permanent or debilitating) she


Tutoring and Dyslexia: What Will Best Serve Your Child?

If your child is falling behind in school, tutoring has probably crossed your mind a few times. Tutors, whether they are private individuals or work through a franchised learning center, may be either highly beneficial for your child or a disappointing use of time and money. When it comes to tutoring and dyslexia, finding the right fit for your child may take time and trial and error. Learning center franchises The main franchised tutoring corporations are Sylvan Learning Centers, Kumon, and Huntington Learning Centers. Their focus is helping students work up to grade level or learning special skills such as


Why is Dyslexia So Misunderstood? Part One

“It [dyslexia] is the most misunderstood of all disorders because it is incorrectly perceived as a reading problem owing to mental reversal or transposition of letters.” ~Robert Melillo, fellow Doctor of Chiropractic and teacher of Childhood Development Disorders classes for the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation. Not only do I agree with Dr. Melillo’s assessment, but I also believe that dyslexia is also the most mismanaged disorder! The way we as a society typically approach it is bumbling and fumbling, and we truly do a disservice to adults and children with dyslexia. Maryann Wolf, professor at Tufts University


5 Tips to Reduce Your Child’s Stress—and Your Own

One of the first things I teach parents about how to support a child with dyslexia is stress reduction. If you can reduce your child’s stress, he or she is more open to natural dyslexia treatment such as Books Neural Therapy™. However, often I find that parents need stress reduction as much as their children do. The concept is much like the safety lecture you receive when you board an airplane. You, as the adult, must put on your oxygen mask so you can help your child with his. Your need for oxygen must be met first, just as your


Reverse Dyslexia and Lose the Fear and Anxiety that Ruins Lives

Animals and humans are not as different as we think. We all have a primitive brain, also known as the reptilian brain. We humans still have instincts that other animals share, and we’ve had them for thousands of years. Animals that are different from the rest display fear and unease, which are considered weaknesses. Among humans, any type of difference may be considered a fault. Learning differences are no different, especially in the case of reading problems. Until we reverse dyslexia, it can cause tremendous fright and worry to those who have it. When one animal is afraid or anxious,


Triune Brain Evolution: One Piece of the Dyslexia Riddle

Over 40 years ago, Paul MacLean from the National Institute of Mental Health outlined triune brain evolution, which means we have three brains that developed in a specific order. Each brain has its own functions, and if the brains do not develop correctly and in the proper sequence, learning disabilities can result. Teaching about the three brains is often the first step I take when offering dyslexia help to parents. It helps them understand where their children’s development may have faltered, and it gives them a small glimpse into why their children may act in certain ways. Reptilian Brain Also


Dyslexia’s Evil Cousins: Symptoms of Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia

Dyslexia isn’t the only learning difference we can reverse. We also offer dyscalculia and dysgraphia help using Books Neural Therapy™. While these learning disabilities aren’t as well known as dyslexia, they can be every bit as upsetting and challenging to deal with. Following are signs and symptoms to look for. Dyscalculia People with dyscalculia have difficulty with numbers and doing math. The word comes from two Greek and Latin words, dys, or “difficult,” and calculare, “to count”. Maybe you remember avoiding math class in junior high or high school? Disliking math is common, but not having the ability to do


Books Neural Therapy Helps Adults Overcome Dyslexia Too

Taken from Chapter 11, House of Miracles by Bernice Dotz Natural neural treatment is for everyone in a family, not only the school-age children. A mother, father, and daughter came in for Books Neural Therapy™. There were two daughters in the family, but the younger one was well adjusted and needed no treatment. The older daughter, Melissa, now a teenager, was frustrated because she couldn’t perform according to her family’s expectations. Their parents were professional, well-educated, charming, and held prominent places in their community. The father came along because he wanted to experience the results of Books Neural Therapy™.
