It always amazes me how often the simplest is the best! The following is a snippet from my kinesiology casebook.
A mother brought her very bright seven-year-old “J.” to see me. She had three boys all with IQ’s way above average, but all having or had learning blocks. Her nine-year-old had had quite a few sessions with Nola Wardlaw with considerable success. Nola had taught them Barbara Wards’ “Double Taps” and Mum had been using these with J. I found J. was doing rather well with these, with only a few glitches.
J. was very willing to take responsibility for his own learning. (He was very competent in maths but not succeeding with his reading and writing.) Not surprisingly, his eye tracking was poor and he was marching homolaterally. I taught him P.A.C.E. and Lazy 8’s.
I did not see him for 3 months and I thought I was not going to see him again. Imagine my delight when he came back and I was told he had been doing his Brain Gym regularly every day, without reminders from Mum! And his reading had improved from six and a half to eight and a half. This session he had a Dennison Laterality Repatterning done and he was challenged to do his Brain Buttons and track the Lazy 8 at the same time. He loved the balance board and has taken this home to play on. Mum shared that she can only catch J. out when doing Double Taps after she has been doing it with him for at least 5 minutes. It will be interesting to see how he progresses.
