Still striving today to put against trying to get better at something which is the hardest thing for you to do - read with your eyes and write with a pen - when we could be enabling children to learn and demonstrate there knowledge through the medium that suits them best- for me that would be advances for special needs in education.
Here again the findings that show a relationship between sound processing and reading. Could auditory training and listening to audio assist to fill the gap and help dyslexic people establish a link between sounds and letters?
Learning to learn remains a powerful and necessary skill in every field of activity. In addition to this skill, imagine that your learning can be accelerated, your mind challenged and your efficiency improved.
"For me I was able to rotate images in my head and look at drawings and describe what could not be seen or how it would look form a different angle. I also found i could memorize chucks of maps, drawings etc in a almost photographic type way..."

Supplements are great to address the balance but really we need to think about over all diet. it is not all about adding in supplements but creating a diet that supply these nutrients via whole foods. Coupled
with reducing the bad foods that it is so easy to overeat and buy if we follow the marketing that is promoting products.
And let us not forget that specific exercise can improve the ability of the brain to take on more information which is an excellent way to improve a dyslexics ability to take on information.
Reducing processed food will help - I know people find it difficult to do this for their family and children but it can be done my family are testament to this. I work with clients to improve their ability or their child's ability to make learning the most efficient possible. so they spend less time but learn more faster, which is the DREAM of most dyslexic people. The best result I have with people is the correct amount, which is dependent on the individual, of the following factors which enhances the ability to learn and most importantly their motivation to learn.
1. increase nutrient intake
2. reduce bad foods
3. implement strategic exercise for enhanced learning outcomes
4. using assistive technology to increase access to information.
5. emotional intelligence (some would argue the most important)

Interestingly with the people I have worked with 1 to 5 have always showed a bigger fast more marked improvement than 6. Which is very interesting as most schools will put most of their time and finances into number 6 and neglect the 1-5.

They are allowing FREE access for people who sign up (in the UK) before December for the year. This will allow many people to have a free taster and see if there is a better way of getting information other than reading with their eyes.I personally have used Audio for information and language development for the last 25 years it is what saved me from giving up education. Reading with my ears gave me the ability and motivation to gradu
We need to share this message in order to reach as many as possible.
What I found is school dose not allow to to work out the best way for you to learn just wants everyone to learn in the same way, which is not realistic and is not always the best way for readers who struggle with accessing text.
Reading with your ears can just be a better way for you with or without reading difficulties.
A study of children’s brainwaves found a link between auditory problems and reading skills
I have certainly had success in improving reading by teaching listening skills and getting my dyslexic students to use auditory input as a stimulus to increase their understanding of words in context and vocabulary skills.
