Overview

Millions of Americans know the pain, frustration, and sense of inferiority caused by the learning disability we call dyslexia. Now, a leading expert on his disorder offers dramatic new evidence that dyslexia may be behind a host of other problems-even when the characteristic reading and writing difficulties are not present. Drawing on real case histories, Dr. Harold Levinson demonstrates that a dysfunction of the inner ear can cause both dyslexia and one or more of these frequently undiagnosed conditions:

  • Balance and coordination problems
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Obsessions and compulsions
  • Speech disorders and poor memory
  • Mood swings, hyperactivity, and phobias
  • Dizziness, motion sickness, and "psychosomatic" headaches, and stomachaches.
Includes new chapters on:
  • Adults with dyslexia
  • Families with dyslexia
  • Speech disorders
  • attention deficit disorders
  • hyperactivity...as well as the latest findings on the causes of these problems...information that further proves this author's once controversial theories!
