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.

Many parents don’t question what they see or hear, and they just assume their
