Overcoming Dyslexia Distress
What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia, a neurological development disorder for which there is no known medical cure, the only respite being early intervention and other strategies that can bring about dramatic improvements in the skill sets of those who bear the brunt of this problem, thus helping them lead quality lives. Many of these sufferers are forced to endure the cruellest and unusual treatments.
The positive aspect to this problem is that dyslexic persons were shown to possess extraordinary ocular, spatial and agile thinking skills which help catapult them to superlative levels in a wide array of career, with examples of George Bush, Mozzart, Agatha Christie, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise dyslexia to name a few are all shining examples of dyslexia-stricken people who have made a mark for themselves.
Dyslexia symptoms, treatment
Early detection of dyslexia with good quality time intervention that involve educational and applied behavioral analysis can benefit immensely, with the key being to have faith in their abilities. Many seem to show positive improvement with holistic therapy like past-life regression therapy.

There were cases of dyslexia in a persons who in the midst of these sessions were able to correctly spell names of certain places and people, something they would not have able to do otherwise.
Kinesis is an effectual mode of learning which employs kinetic imagery that is derived out of sensation from muscular movement, which in assistance with visual and auditory imaging, yields great results. Eurythmics, a synchronized body movement which is a dance based concept, promotes animated timely movements that helps overcome this problem. Dyslexia has no relation with intelligence levels and is many times genetically disposed problem. Kinetic energy facilitates healthy muscle development coupled with good use of mental ability that helps children channelize their energy into constructive means for positive results.
Dyslexia in Children
Multisensory teaching methods are known to aid children with one or more sensory defects. These methods employ reading information, looking at representation or listening to commands. The solution lies in engaging the use of more of the child’s senses, the key being the use of touch and kinesis (movement). This helps the child’s brain gain perceptive strength and kinetic reminiscence to hold on to, coupled with visual and auditory reflexes.
Recent research has shown relation between the nerve cells in the brain called ‘magnocells’ and light changes. The Magnocells of dyslexic children were found to be less responsive to light compared to others, which is needed to recognise print. This new finding will definitely open new arenas to solve this global problem.
