Improve Emotional Health

Dyslexia is not an IQ deficit. The constant stress of working too hard is keenly felt.  Thus, it is very important to provide helpful ways to relieve stress and cope with our emotions. Anything that puts pressure on your body or hands, even in those who avoid touch, feel increased calmness.


If you are a parents and see your child become too physical, let them know they must need a hug. At first they will resist, but then you will feel them relax. Once they do, I ask if they are ready for me to let go. I encourage them to use their words instead of their hands. If needed, I role model.

Diminishing Dyslexia with Auditory Integration Training

After Auditory Integration Training, clients gradually experience improved sound tolerance and clarity of speech. As the auditory system strengthens, your mind starts to feel calmer helping you focus and enjoy the moment.

About a year after auditory integration training with vision therapy, clients experienced improved academic performance. Additional improvements are seen in expressive speech, self-esteem, and socialization at home and away from home.

Visual Processing Difficulties Found in  Students with Dyslexia

Overall, numerous studies found a higher rate of visual processing difficulties in students with a diagnosis of dyslexia when compared to typically developing students.

Thus far, all my clients with a diagnosis of dyslexia struggled with  visual processing difficulties and sound intolerance.

Keeping vision single and clear decreases reading comprehension because the brain is too busy keeping vision clear to remember what you just read.

When there are food allergies, food sensitivities, or chronic congestion, decreased sound stimulation to the hearing system increases the risk for developmental delays. Each milestone of development occurs within certain timeframes. When something interrupts development, direct intervention and purposeful play teach those skills.

There is hope. Work with Cheri to learn more, receive advocacy help and support through referrals; understanding test results and create an action plan.

How I Improved Expressive Speech and Fluency

Today I am sharing with you a testimony from the mother of a frustrated speaker. Her personal background knowledge from her career led her to search for answers early on in her son’s life. She was one of my first clients and a case that lead me on a journey to discover how to improve expressive speech and fluency.

A Mother’s Journey Into the World of Dyslexia

During the spring of 2007, I attended Dianne Craft’s conference where I learned that dyslexia affected the auditory processing center and the visual processing center. Perhaps I had found help for my daughter’s reading and spelling struggles. She was a gifted artist, surely there were no visual processing concerns.
