I just got back from Irlen screener training and I have discovered something incredible: I see distortions when I read. The reason this is incredible is because I had no idea I had this problem. This realization has changed my world for the better! At Easyread we know that Irlen Syndrome is one of the seven causes of reading difficulty. 66% of people diagnosed with dyslexia have some form of Irlen issues. 46% of people diagnosed with learning problems have some form of Irlen issues. These numbers are huge, yet so few know about this syndrome.

From the moment a child is born (or even before, some scientists have argued), he is absorbing information like a sponge absorbs water. The things that babies see, touch, taste and hear as they explore the big bright world around them build out the neural pathways in their brains.

Data indicated that dyslexic individuals exhibited difficulties on tasks involving Working Memory (WM). Previous studies have suggested that these deficits stem from impaired processing in the Phonological Loop (PL). The PL impairment was connected to poor phonological processing. However, recent data has pointed to the Central Executive (CE) system as another source of WM deficit in dyslexic readers. The results of the current study support the hypothesis that at least for the group of dyslexics with non-impaired PL, WM deficit stems from poor CE activity.

As parents we continually seek ways to help our children succeed in learning and life. One of the best, but least known ways we can support our children is to help them build their foundation for learning through neurodevelopmental movement. In over 20 years the pioneer of neurodevelopmental movement has never seen a child with dyslexia that didn't...

Over the years many people have suggested that our alphabet and spelling is at the root of our difficulties with literacy in the English-speaking world.

Are they right? The simple answer is yes! To a degree this is surely true...

As parents we continually seek ways to help our children succeed in learning and life. One of the best, but least known ways we can support our children is to help them build their foundation for learning through neurodevelopmental movement. Neurodevelopmental movements are innate, automatic movements all healthy babies do in womb life and infancy as long as they are unimpeded and not stressed. These movements, called reflexes and rhythmic movements, fuel the tremendous rate of brain growth that occurs in infancy. The stimulation from these infant movements is responsible for maturing and calming the brain and sensory-motor systems so that future learning is accessible, easy, and enjoyable. For many reasons, children in modern society are not receiving their full measure of neurodevelopmental movements in their first year or two of life. When this happens, our children are left with an incomplete foundation for learning. In other words, their brains may lack proper maturity and connectivity for easy learning, even though there is no lack of intelligence.
