As an educator, you know that the ability to read is one of the crucial foundations of success in the information age. Students who have reading difficulties will have difficulties in every area of academic achievement, not because they lack the intelligence to achieve, but because their reading problems stand in the way of absorbing the knowledge they need to succeed. Students with a reading disability can be disruptive in the classroom, acting out as a way of dealing with the frustration of having difficulty reading the materials put in front of them.
There are several basic brain processes involved in reading. Binocular teaming, or the proper focusing of the eyes, requires integration between the two hemispheres of the brain. Most reading problems are caused by inefficient coordination and integration between the many brain structures and systems involved in the reading process and can be dealt with through sensory integration therapy. The question for the teacher is simply this: how can I begin to address the brain processing problems that are making it difficult for my students to master reading?
Balametrics has developed products and therapies that use balance as the central component to address sensory integration disorders that cause learning problems. Activities on the Belgau Balance Board can help your students to achieve greater integration between the two hemispheres of the brain. Learning Breakthrough Program activities using the Bean Bags or Pendulum Ball stimulate the eyes’ binocular teaming.
The question you have to ask yourself is: Why keep applying band-aids to symptoms when I can start addressing the foundational problems which are keeping my students from succeeding?
