In Response To: dyslexia (Cocky van Hesteren (A+))

Hi Cocky,

most cases of dyslexia result from inadequate coordination of visual input (i.e., they originate in the visual cortex and even the brain stem). This is related in many instances to visual problems not with acuity but with things like information processing from both eyes as a team (dyslexics' brains might shut down the input from one eye, e.g., even though the vision in this eye is unimpaired), convergence, tracking, and a host of other things. Nutritional approach is likely to be helpful -- everything that improves neural functions will be beneficial -- that may be the reason for fish consumption yielding some results, since EFAs are necessary for neural pathways to form properly. However, since poor visual habits get ingrained once the child has learned the "wrong" way to see written material, and respond to reeducation, I would strongly recommend a visit to a BEHAVIORAL optometrist. He or she might track down hidden functional problems that are overlooked during routine eye exams and prescribe a set of corrective visual practices/exercises. Behavioral optometry is often the most efficient remedy for dyslexia.

Good luck,
