A very pleasant two hours was spent at the Bridge Radio on Sunday 12th April- an excellent local commercial radio station near Dudley .Our theme was Learning to Read and Spell Through Music.Our D.J. and show host Dr.Paul just happened to have a PHD in Psychology! -how lucky is that and so asked us really relevant questions,and the whole show breezed along very quickly.
Paul asked me where I see remediation for Dyslexia developing and I do feel that we at LTS are ahead f the game in that we want to embrace a more whole person or holistic approach .This could include not just and numeracy support, but allowing the student/client to understand how they learn,to build confidence levels and show them through kinesiology or hypnotherapy how to lesson the effort on the central nervous system.
Dyslexic people know all too well how stressful it is just to decode and process verbal information .All their concentration goes to this aspect leaving no room for other brain areas to get a sense of what is being said/read.Certainly kinesiology plays a part in detecting stress on the nervous system and is a very useful guide when a client uses coloured overlays.We have geat success with visual Dyslexia testing because it can be immediately relieved with colour.
We talked about diet and the EFAs Omega 3 6 9 ,about related conditions and our range of testing facilities from four years upwards,our methods,our mind mapping ,and nmemonic strategies.
Paul asked about music and Dyslexia and the latest evidence about rhythm most of which which you can see on the BDA and Mozart blog above.We’ve know for a while that neuron learning is the way forward and to this effect we will be devising a course for learners, teachers /individuals about this.

People popped in and out of the studio and all seemed fascinated by the subject,volunteering their own stories -This a such a typical response it led us to thinking about compiling some of them.If you have a story about Dyslexia -perhaps you are in business or a music teacher or even an inventor-(we know all about right brain activity and how important it is that Dyslexics recognise this), do get in touch.
