Are Dyslexia, ADD or ADHD the same thing or part of the same problem?
ADD or ADHD is not always associated with Dyslexia, but very often they are an extension of it. Sometimes the food children eat (or the artificial additives and preservatives) cause hyperactivity in
children, or aggravate the situation. Being a part of Dyslexia, I treat it in exactly the same way – not as a disease or disability, but a need to create orientation to stabilise the sense of time, balance, motion – and with it regulate the output of dopamine. However, if a child is on Ritalin or another stimulant, we are not allowed to work with them, until they have been off the drugs for about 3 weeks. After the program, there is no need to get back to the drug, if the exercises are continued.
