Dyslexia Reading Roller Coaster

 

reading roller coasterReading Roller Coaster – with Dr. Jan Bedell

Reading can be a roller coaster when you have a struggling child. In this episode, you will understand more about why we at Little Giant Steps say that most labels are symptomatic labels. When things are not going well, symptoms are what most people pay attention to or focus on.  Here Jan shares why the focus needs to shift to the root cause of the symptoms so there can be a different outcome.  Coping and compensating is typically what is offered from the educational community. From a NeuroDevelopmental perspective, the symptoms noted below are caused by a glitch in the brain and can be improved and in many instances totally eliminated by addressing the root issue that is causing the glitch/ miscommunication in the brain pathways. There really are activities that change the way the brain functions even when there is a diagnosis of dyslexia.
