Reading and learning difficulties

More recent concepts about the cause and pathophysiology of certain dyslexias and other learning problems, hyperactivity, attention deficits, etc. include the importance of proprioception, visual and ocular motor function, the way images are conveyed from the eye to the brain centres and, above all, the coordination of hearing with vision and hand movements. Many of these issues tie in directly with the concepts set out in the section on PDS (Postural Deficiency Syndrome).

In these pathologies, the ophthalmological component has become important in the treatment of these problems.

In some cases, our action is relevant and fundamentally effective..

The new therapeutic approaches available to us, without resorting to drug therapy or accompanied training sessions, include the use of postural prisms, filters of various wavelengths, food supplements, therapies from the field of behavioural optometry, phototherapy actions and correction of primitive reflex anomalies, as well as the use of postural insoles and auditory-sensory stimulation (Tomatis method).

In many situations, the effects of these measures are immediate, shortening the time clinically necessary for treatment.

As collaboration with teachers, psychologists and parents is fundamental, whenever it is of interest, we organise conference presentations for restricted groups to broaden knowledge of thus facilitate access to this essentially multidisciplinary therapy.
