|The above learning differences or difficulties come under the umbrella of dyslexia. Each learning
difference/difficulty listed shares common symptoms which commonly appear as poor physical co-ordination,
poor visual processing skills and anxiousness. This Swedish developed treatment programme is designed to
address these areas. Through a special series of exercises improvements are possible in the Gross and fine Motor
skills, Ocular-motor/eye tracking and Hand to eye co-ordination.
Massage therapy and acupressure are also involved in this treatment to improve development of the nervous
system and reduce muscle tension and anxiousness.
The aim is to strengthen the person’s connections between their brain and their body, to improve inner strength
and will power and as a result enable one to cope with the difficulties of everyday life.
