Dyslexia
Dyslexia is the most common form of learning disability. The word dyslexia translate to “abnormal or difficult reading”. However, we now know that dyslexia can be much more than difficulty reading. Dyslexia can impair listening, thinking, speaking, writing, calculating, all in addition to or separate from reading. Dyslexia can be caused by altered developmental processing or acquired through an injury. Currently there are no medications that help with dyslexia. From a clinician’s perspective, identifying the cause of these difficulties is the first step to helping someone overcome their dyslexia. At OYBC, our doctors assess the entire body and nervous system and evaluate how they are working. This evaluation includes vision and hearing, the ability to process visual (eye movements) and auditory (listening tests) information, and how all of those functions integrate into the brain. Based upon the assessments, each person receives an individualize program of exercises to help them process information better, which may include eye exercises, coordination exercises, cognitive therapy, and vestibular therapy.
