As an educator, you know that dyslexia makes it very difficult for students to achieve academic success. The tragedy is that the problem masks the fact that these students are probably very intelligent, with aptitude and creativity in a variety of areas. You feel frustrated as you watch bright students struggle with schoolwork, knowing that their ability far exceeds their actual achievement. They are not the victims of low intelligence. Dyslexia is a brain-processing, sensory integration disorder, problem which keeps them from reaching their maximum potential. As a teacher, you also know how students with dyslexia can be disruptive in the classroom, acting out as a way of dealing with the frustration of academic struggles. As a teacher, you already have mechanisms in place to deal with dyslexic students. But do the tools you’ve been given teach them to adapt to the dyslexia or can you help them to address the fundamental brain processing problems that are the root cause of the disorder?
Dyslexics often confuse left and right, write letters or numbers backward, and transpose letters and numbers. These are symptoms of an underlying problem with spatial awareness. Problems in sequencing (e.g. difficulty following 2 or 3 step instructions or difficulty putting things in order) are also common symptoms of dyslexia.
Balametrics has developed products and therapies that use balance as the central component to addressing brain-processing and sensory integration disorders. 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 we address the underlying brain disorganization that produces these symptoms, our therapies can be helpful in dyslexia treatment.
