Lasten, ja vanhempien ihmisten lukemisnopeus nousi välittömästi keskimäärin 49 % ja lukuvirheet vähenivät, Lapsia oli 84 kpl , joista noin puolet oli  myös muutaman kuukauden päästä kontrollissa. Lukunopeus nousi edelleen lisää. Aikuisia oli 88 kpl. Tulokset olivat luonnollisesti  tilastollisesti erittäin merkitseviä. Ne tukevat visuaalisen teorian suurta merkitystä dysleksiassa.. Lukeminen opitaan .On syytä pohtia millaisen sentraalisen lukumallin ihminen hahmottaa ja oppii, kun tekstin kuva verkkokalvolla vaihtelee sattumanvaraisesti. Keskushermoston edellytykset ja kapasiteetti modifioivat kykyä luoda sentraalinen lukumalli  näillä reunaehdoilla. Häiriö voi matkia  sentraalista vikaa. Mikä siis on sentraalista, mikä on perifeeristä?

 Jos visuaaliset syöttötiedot korjataan tavanomaisiksi, keskushermosto pystyy  kapasiteetillaan nopeasti korjaamaan tilanteen. Tulokset ovat selviä

Tulokset seuraavassa laajemmassa tutkimuksessa ovat samat. 335 potilasta lukunopeuden kasvu 43 %. Enempää en ole viitsinyt tallentaa .

 TAKK:n tutkimuksessa  Hakkarainen ja Hataran kanssa 2005 tulokset Niilo Mäki Instituutin mittareilla  ulkopuolisten testaamana samaa luokkaa. Potilasmäärä 20, kontrollit on tehty. Mittarit olivat Niilo Mäki Instituutin mukaiset normaalikäytössä olevat mittarit.

Koska kaarikäytävä-ärsytys on perinnöllinen ,15 000 potilasta n. 15 v aikana itse tutkittuna, vaikutus perifeerisen syöttötiedon korjaamisella on kaikkiin lukihäiriön taustana pidettyihin tekijöihin.

Dia 1 What the children tell about dyslexia , how the treatment changes the situation and what is the background ( IS SEEN AS POWERPOINT PRESENTATION IN ENGLISH VERSION IN  www.readingoci.org 

 

 

 

In the picture above is presented a comparison of a self organized neural network computer and as an analogy the function of dyslexic brain. There are possibilities of varying degree central structural anatomical or physiological lesions in the brain.  According to the visual theory of dyslexia the visual input may be distorted and feed inappropriate information to the visual cortex. Thus incorrect  function programs are developed to visual cortex. This produces difficulties in reading and memory of the words.

The sight changes are seen allways, when horizontal, anteriorior and posterior canals are treated. This happens independent of other sight problems eg. retinal problems. All the canals of the stronger lesion side must be treated to obtain the effect. This is only logical and has been  stated to function in the materials. It is unlogical to suppose that lesion only is in some canal. Eg. the sensitivity of Hallpike test may never be as good as in RahkoWRW with closed eyes and in Rahko test with follow up time 30 sec of slow movement repeated 4 times because gravitation presses the patient on bed and prevents the body corrective movement. The nystagmus criterion of otolith canal irritation ( OCI ) is sadly insensitive to diagnostic purposes. If it is used as a criterion , the majority of  OCI is not found and the patients remain untreated.  

 The changes are: more brightness, color intensity increases, 3-D is better, contrast better, accuracy better, visual field, vision field gets normal. It may be eg 40 degree before treatments. When the affected side is treated, the visual field enlargens and thus the person is able to see several words simultaneously instead of a part of one word.

He has been reading parts of words and trying to  connect them  to create a word.  Here evolve differences in the structure of the word, amount of letters and  other variables. Then the person recreates in his memory the sentences anew. All the typical difficulties of a dyslexic to understand, what he reads, appear.

When he sees simultaneously several words, he reads sentences, thoughts, and thus understands. The clear visual field in dyslexia; see my you tube video, may be 10-15 degrees in most difficult cases, but after bilateral  treatment ( in most difficult cases) it expands up to 170 degrees.

This naturally affects  on driving in traffic , too.

The width of clear visual field before and after positional treatments in  37 consecutive BPPV patients in my practice. This explains, why dyslectics see simultaneously several words instead one or a part one word after the treatments. Thus one reads sentences, thoughts,and understands, what is reading. He must not reconstruct sentences .

Because the foveal area movement  with saccades makes sharp and coloured visual  area larger, it is essential, that saccades are as accurate as possible.  This happens in positional  treatment correction of OCI persons  including persons with dyslexia or learning disability.  

If it does not get normal field , the treatment of the other side  vestibular canals fullfills the task and the person gets normal field of vision. This is especially important to obtain full body cognition and visual cognition.

It is useful to measute the clear accurate visual field before the positional treatments. The researcher keeps  fingers vertically in the visual field of the subject at 1m distance.

The question is: fingers or something.The fingers are moved sidevays , until they are  not recognizes as fingers. An approximate clear visual field is recorded.

After the treatments the measurement is performed again.

If the angle is not 170-180 degrees of identifiable fingers, the other side three vestibular canals are treated, too. Usually then the angle is sufficient to see clearly several words simulteneously . Then the reader reads sentences and understands , what he is reading. The reconstruction of a possible sentence  afterwards  of individual words is no longer necessary. Thus to and fro reading is no longer necessary, vowels do not change place , the amount of consonants does not wary: all is instant and easier to understand and remember. To obtain  the full effect takes some minutes. Eye movements  increase the speed of development of the langer visual field.

This is the method to ensure the maximun treatment effect of positional treatments. The subject sees instead of one or a part of word simultaneously several words clearly and fast. It is essential.

 Because the person, especially children, have then better participation capacity in their group, cognition of the actual situation,  their behavior gets more normal, and they need not to be hyperactive, their restlessness disappears. Thus some types of compensatory hyperactivity behavior models are no longer necessary and fade away.

The patients report that they must not concentrate as much as earlier, the words are recognized immediately, the lines dont jump, one must not read forwards and backwards repeatedly, because the word in instantly clear.

A reading test to get this result has been  performed to at least to 3500 patients during these 10 years. Thus is is real.

During these years it has emerged the need to treat in the most difficult cases even the milder OCI-lesion side to have the effect on dyslexia persistent. There may be  a drop in performance after 1-3 weeks and when the other side is treated Lempert,Rahko and Semont, the performance returns to earlier level.

There is no need to ponder, which is more important: central or peripheral background to dyslexia and learning difficulties. They do not exclude each other. They may be simultaneously present and must be treated accordingly.

It is essential to treat the OCI based  visual basis of peripheral origin away in 30 minutes and follow the possible other side treatment need. Naturally the training thereafter is easier and convalescence easier. This naturally does not exclude the central basis that is treated accordingly, but its part is smaller than supposed: eg. right-left identification capacity etc.

The systematized approach to solve the practical questions and move to schools is presented in  www.readingoci.org  . The experiences and results are presented in the home pages in finnish. English and german etc. versions are coming with the globalization. System has been tested and tried now more than 10 years to gain experience of practical questions.

In the paper 3 are presented the increase of the reading speed and correctness. The mean increase was 49% in the first session and grew more later. The correctness of reading increased. The results persist. The bigger material reveals 43 % growth in reading speed.. The input problems in sight and cognition may create an imitation of the central lesion, that is not real. When the disturbing eye movement are eliminated , the brain with its capacity  rapidly corrects the situation. 

The suggestion of saccade background  of the phenomenon was proved by Ram-Tsur et al. 2006;Investigative  Ophtalmology and visual science. 2006;47:4401-4409. They report  significantly longer latencies in the ortogonal second saccades in dyslexics.

With Niilo Mäki Institute tests the  results are the same in adult material  studied with Hatara and Hakkarainen in Tampere Adult Schooling Center  TAKK. Other materials completed and under  way have the same results.

 

The latest material is by my working group in a randomized  dyslexic material . The change in short term memory , WISC III numeric series tests, as compared to normals and nontreated material is in paired t-test is statistically very significant , p<0.02. The NEPSY listening pseudowords  in the same setting p<0.0005 is statistically again significant.

This probably is dependent on the plasticity capacity of the brain. There are reports on the hearing, auditory and visual cortical function interactions and intertwining. They participate on the tasks of the other.

 When the model of visual cortex function gets better, the auditory cortex benefits of it.

Thus the effect of the positional treatment to dyslexic patients is on

   ---Visual cognition background

  --- Auditory cognition background

------Short term memory

   --- Hereditary on the basis of personally more than 10000 tested and treated patients  during 13 years.

Thus all the most probable backgrounds of dyslexia are covered with this peripheral input correction treatment of different degree.

Naturally additional central component effect varies from nonexistent to very extensive.

When the children have better capacity to follow the social situation: larger accurate sight  area, faster conception, visually and through better hearing conception , better coordination, better body awareness, they participate the teaching situation and group tasks more easily. Even the need to produce some other form of activity, hyperactivity, as earlier , when they were not able  to this participation, basis of ADHD,  is no longer necessary.

 The child must not rotate his head to see with his narrow  clear visual field accurately, what is happening. The child must not ask : what did you say, to obtain information, because he did not hear accurately: ADHD ; ADD type of behavior is often the other alternative, going to ones own quiet world, where nothing disturbs. 

This has been stated  in numerous cases during the more than 10 years. The children get more relaxed, controlled, their self-esteem instantly as if explodes.

In cases where there is a relapse of dyslexia, bilateral bppv is in the background. This is seen even in Rahko test as sway to the opposite side as compared the earlier result. After the treatment of the other side, the results get back to normal. Typically this happens 1-3 weeks after the first treatment. It is more usual in more difficult dyslexia cases.

DYSKALKULIA(3)DYSCALCULIA.

1/3 lapsista matematiikan numerot nousivat 2 numeroa seurantaikana muutaman kuukauden kuluessa., raportti 23.09. 2003 Suomen Lääkärilehdessä (3). Syynä lienee nopean lukemiskyvyn ja hahmottamisen helpottama tehtävän ymmärtäminen ja paremman näkemisen kautta oikein hahmotettu tehtävä. Myös muissa lukuaineissa havaittiin oppimisen helpottuvan osalla lapsia.

The dyscalculia got better in a third of the children in a longer follow up .in paper 3. This may depend on the better understanding of the question and better visual cognition. The children see more words at the same time correctly and clearly and thus can understand even the question and other facts.
