The Learning Breakthrough Program™ addresses brain processing issues that underly Dyslexia by
integration skills directly, enabling users to overcome
hurdles and successfully reach their reading and verbal
information processing potential.
Dyslexia is a challenge that makes it very difficult
for people of all ages to achieve academic success. Watching people
struggle to overcome the challenges of dyslexia can be a very
disheartening experience. One part of the tragedy is that the
"reading problem" masks the fact that many dyslexics are very
intelligent individuals with aptitude and creativity in a
variety of areas. You may feel frustrated watching a bright
child (or adult) struggle with schoolwork or work-related
reading requirements knowing that their ability far exceeds
their achievement. Dyslexic students and adults most often do
not suffer from low intelligence.
"Famous people with Dyslexia"
Thinking about the
mechanics of the reading process sheds some light on how
"brain calibration" activities (like those in the Learning
breakthrough Program) help "fix" the processing weaknesses
that dyslexics exhibit.
The right side of
the brain controls the left eye's function and the left side
of the brain controls the function of the right eye. These two
sides for the brain must coordinate closely in order to
deliver visual information properly and they need to do this
while viewing text that is starting on the left side of a
page, moving across the mid-line of the page, and finish up on
the right side of the page. If, as one example, only one of
our eyes is being used to reliably acquire visual information
the resulting imbalance of sensory input generates a very
basic hurdle for the reader in question. The "sequencing" and
"binocular teaming" requirements necessary to perform the
reading task smoothly are just a couple of the brain processes
that need to mesh precisely for the reading tasks, that many
take for granted, to be performed. Refining this entire
process is the objective of the Learning Breakthrough Program.
Other areas in the
visual processing arena that are known to be symptomatic among
dyslexics include: the presence of eye strain, accuracy of
focus, vertical alignment, integrity of visual field,
stability of visual field, functioning of temporal and nasal
visual fields, equality of brightness and structure of visual
Although we think
of vision in the limited terms of “seeing,” the visual system
is deeply integrated, through distributed neural networks,
into many of our higher level brain functions. Even more deeply fundamental inputs into
these systems is the balance, or vestibular system.
Understanding how fine
balance, posture and proper tracking impact visual perception is critical to understanding
how the two eyes work together to begin simple data collection
and how transmission of this critical visual input impacts the
entire reading skills process.
confuse left and right, write letters or numbers backward,
transpose letters and numbers and often describe materials as
"lifting" off the page. These are symptoms of underlying
problems with binocularity and spatial
awareness. Problems in sequencing (e.g. difficulty following 2 or 3 step instructions or
difficulty putting things in order) are also common symptoms
When you consider
that many dyslexia sufferers have developed years of habits
designed to compensate for these processing limitations, it
becomes all the more clear that "calibrating" the brain's
processing equipment is critical to attack the underlying
source of dyslexia symptoms.
Breakthrough Program™ uses balance as its central component.
In order to understand the link between balance and dyslexia, it is necessary to understand the role that the
sense of balance (vestibular system) has on all brain
processes. Because proper and consistent use addresses
underlying issues that result in improved reading and writing
ability, the Learning Breakthrough Program™ is an ideal
therapy and treatment for those who suffer from Dyslexia. And
now, the program is structured, organized and easy to use not
only in a clinical environment but in the home as well.
