Conditions Improved by Brain Stimulation
Educational kinesiology improves the symptoms of two conditions found in many of today's learners: dyslexia and dysgraphia. What exactly are these conditions?
Dyslexia, according to Dr. Dennison is, "is an inherited condition that makes it extremely difficult to read, write and spell in your native language despite at least average intelligence." The International Dyslexia Association defines it as "a neurological disorder which interferes with the acquisition and processing of language. Varying degrees of severity, it is manifested by difficulties in receptive and expressive language, including phonological processing, in reading, in writing, spelling, handwriting and sometimes arithmetic.
On the other hand, dysgraphia according to the National Center for Learning Disabilities is, "Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects writing, which requires a complex set of motor and information processing skills. Dysgraphia makes the act of writing difficult. It can lead to problems with spelling, poor handwriting, and putting thoughts on paper. People with dysgraphia can have trouble organizing letters, numbers, and words on a line or page. This can result partly from visual-spatial difficulties: trouble processing what the eye sees and/or language processing difficulty: trouble processing and making sense of what the ear hears."
The following articles will help clarify these conditions for which Brain Gym is used as a resource.
