De-fusing Dyslexia.
Wasserwald, Lee
The paper describes a program in which 11 dyslexic students (grades 7-8) participated in exercises designed to return the brain to its intended wholeness of function. Students were asked to contract certain specified major muscles while performing a speaking or reading task. Corrective exercises were then performed to use both brain hemispheres. Parents were asked to supervise exercises at home. Results suggested that eight Ss showed significant growth in one to six of the testing areas (including academic changes, parental observation of change, oral reading, and information retention).
