The Learning Breakthrough Programme is available as a complete system or via the Balametrics website where you can order individual components. I choose to order the Learning Breakthrough Activity Handbook and Test Materials. For my $37 USD plus shipping I got two plastic comb bound booklets, seventy five and fifteen pages long respectively.
If you are looking for a good, easy to digest, introduction to the brain then check out this site. Using flash animation to provide clear graphics and some interaction, this is an excellent learning tool. With chapters on the eyes, hearing, balance and eye movement, it gives a good biological background to some of the key problem areas of dyslexia and related learning difficulties.
The Well Balanced Child – Movement and early learning
By Sally Goddard Blythe
Sally Goddard Bythe is a director of the Institute of the Neuro-Physiological Psychology which focus on how retained primitive reflexes can be the source many educational problems. Along with her husband Peter Blythe, Sally has been researching child development and based on their findings they developed a diagnostic and treatment programme that has been used to help hundreds of children and adults. In ‘The Well Balanced Child’ the author draws on this experience to explain how children develop and the importance of movement, music and a healthy diet for the healthy growth of a child.
To quote the back cover: “[This book] presents a major breakthrough in the treatment of … ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia”. And it does just that, presenting a clear case for the importance of Long Chain Polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs) in brain development and the critical role they have with learning problems such as dyslexia.
