Gaining clarity with natural timing and rhythm!
Dyslexia is the most common reading disability, but it is unique from other reading difficulties because it is not just a receptive language-base learning disability; it also affects children’s expressive language skills, and in some cases, the ability to recognize voices and sounds. It can lead to difficulty with speech and reading, mirrored handwriting and inability to attend amidst distractions.
Reading and writing are very important to childhood development. Trouble reading can make it hard for children to be exposed to new thoughts and materials, which is often amplified by ADHD and the language disorders associated with dyslexia.
Ann was having trouble at school because of her dyslexia. Although she was 14, her tests indicated she was reading at an elementary level. However, with a little hard work and IM training, Ann has brought her scores up by almost two years in accuracy and fluency, and a whopping seven years in comprehension. And it didn’t end there; halfway through IM training, Ann reported that she was also doing better at lacrosse and was even put in charge of practice drills!
Timing in the brain, or Neurotiming, is critical to reading, speech, language and cognitive function. Timing is a domain-general mechanism that basis for attention, working memory and processing speed, all of which are critical for reading and language development. While domain-general might sound foreign, it is actually a principle at play right now in your brain. Much of our lives revolve around timing. Reading relies on timing. Sleep cycles rely on brain timing. Speaking is all about pauses and timing; even baking cookies is a matter of timing. This timing in the brain has been shown to be deficient in several common conditions, including dyslexia.
IM is the only training program that improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format. Research shows that combining whole body movements with cognitive tasks leads to overall better outcomes. IM is a patented and unique training tool that challenges thinking and movement simultaneously, providing real-time millisecond feedback to help synchronize the body’s “internal clock.”
In fact, a study from Baylor University reveals that students who received just
15 minutes of IM training,four days a week in addition to language and reading intervention,demonstrated significant improvement
in reading rate, fluency and comprehension over students who just received language and reading instruction.
