De-Fusing Dyslexia. Part II.
Wasserwald, Lee
In a continuation study, 12 students with dyslexia participated in muscle testing and exercises. Six areas were evaluated via pre- and post-tests: academics (using measures of spelling, reading, and math); parental observations of changes in their children (behavioral, academic or affective); perceptual drawing; oral reading; written language; and information retention. Eleven of the twelve students showed significant growth in one to six of the academic tests. Parental observations revealed 10 positive responses. There was no pattern evident in scores on the Slossom Perceptual Drawing Test. Six students showed positive significant results in accuracy on oral reading samples, and seven demonstrated significant comprehension improvements. Copies of letters written by parents are appended.
