At least one child in five experiences some form of learning difficulty, however, learning difficulties as we understand them do not exist--they are not diseases, just symptoms. These symptoms never appear alone and are treatable and avoidable. Here, an expert in child neurology approaches learning difficulties of childhood--including dyslexia, ADD, OCD, ADHD, dyspraxia and Tourette's syndrome--from a truly groundbreaking perspective. All human babies are born prematurely and develop special, new brain cells four months after birth. Every human's development in the womb and particularly in these early stages of life can, therefore, be affected by developmental delay, which can blight childhood and marginalize a child at school. Since our brains continue to grow, however, the symptoms can also be treated. This book explains the background to human developmental delay and offers advice on how to get the best assessment for your child and an explanation of what the examination must include; the effects--good and bad--of certain foods on the brain; exercises and computer programs that you can use to expand your child's neural function; and case histories of children on whom this plan has worked. In the single biggest breakthrough in the history of learning difficulties, this guide explains the cause of developmental delay syndromes using simple, easy-to-follow tips to show how to greatly reduce the risk of a child suffering from them, and gives advice on what can be done to treat those children that do.
