Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that causes problems with learning language-based skills. It is a neurological condition that affects around 10 – 20% of the population to some degree. Read more...
People who have dyslexia or dyslexia symptoms often have trouble with reading, writing and spelling. It can also affect: concentration, short term memory, maths, coordination and communication skills. So, being incapable of paying attention for long periods of time, finding it hard to make friends, being prone to tantrums and seemingly insensitive to other people’s feelings are also indications of a dyslexic condition. However, dyslexia has no reflection on your intelligence – it is about the access to your intelligence. Being dyslexic doesn’t mean that a person can’t read, nor does it mean that their intelligence is impaired, but it can make learning very challenging, depending on the degree of the problem. Unless these challenges are addressed it is very likely that people will avoid anything to do with reading, writing and spelling, joining in and socialising.
Many of the symptoms associated with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD are believed to be linked to poor cerebellar efficiency. Through daily exercises focussed on balance, eye tracking and coordination the Dore programme aims to improve the performance of the cerebellum, the ‘skill centre’ of the brain which makes everyday tasks automatic.
There have been many papers written about the research into dyslexia and the cerebellum. Here is a list of recommended reading.
