Dyslexia is a learning disorder that slowly manifests and affects your ability to read, spell, write and speak. According to WebMD, 5% to 10% of people in the United States alone have some various symptoms of dyslexia, such as slow reading, difficulty spelling, or confusing words. While most people receive this diagnosis early on in life (children), others won’t until much later (adults), therefore, affecting both equally. It’s important to understand that signs of this disorder can present themselves differently at varying ages. This challenging condition arises from deviations in parts of the brain that process language/communication. Imaging scans of people with dyslexia show that regions of the brain that should be active when a person reads don’t operate correctly
Neurofeedback has improved the lives of numerous people diagnosed with dyslexia. By targetting the regions of the brain that dyslexia affects with brain training exercises, many of the children and adults I have treated, improved their reading proficiency and communication, and have also learned how to control their emotions during frustrating situations, which is very common among children who suffer from this disorder.
As a Neurofeedback Specialist, I love helping people create healthier and happier lives. I relish receiving positive feedback from parents informing me of how much their children have improved after several sessions. For instance, just today I worked with a three-year-old girl who’s been coming to the Eustache Institute for several weeks, and her speech has improved tremendously. She’s finally enjoying herself in preschool, learning her letters and numbers, no longer feeling frustrated by her dyslexia.
