    Some of the greatest minds of the 20th century struggled with formal education , paradoxically they found the easy things hard and the hard things easy .Two years ago we decided to do something truly 'stupid ' to find out why and how they turned things around . Then to write a course for those with aspiration , targeted at those with initiative , the parents and siblings with higher education / professional careers in mind . Targeted at those who wanted to know , what could they do to help . What we discovered was remarkable , our course materials are best described as a detailed operators manual , our philosophy , perfect should not be the enemy of better . Our ultimate goal to seek out super res-ponders , to prove that the few represent just the tip of the ice burg . To mobilize a disenfranchised army , who just need direction from people just like them , a helping hand , the chance , the opportunity to find out , if they too , could be good at the hard things . Our view is that any parent any sibling any extended family member would if they could , step up and help. If you would like to learn more you can listen to the free 10 minute ABC podcast on this page : it is this podcast that convinced us we needed to invest our time and money .Our techniques are drug free and of lifelong value they are simple direct significant and proven to heighten Attention , Memory , Focus and Concentration , anyone can apply these ideas and gain a competitive advantage .

    PROFILE : VISUAL THINKER

    'Auditory sequential thinkers are born to excel at procedural tasks like reading , spelling and short term memory . A visual spatial thinker will if equipped with the right tools excel with ideas , innovation , long term memory and an ability to handle complexity '

    MYTH :the right side of the brain is the site of our creative, intuitive self and the left is the home of logic and rationality. If you are a logical type you are left-brained. If you are more artistic and touchy-feely, you are right-brained Lets get this right this is a myth , a myth that is both misleading and distorting . In certain circumstances as the brain races to keep up with fleeting subconscious images , a visual thinkers may attempt to think and speak very quickly . For this reason visual thinkers often have a trait normally associated with auditory thinkers , a high degree of verbal intelligence. [Source - minority reports NLP short course]

    In simplistic terms the left hemisphere processes language listening decoding and processing The right hemisphere is more concerned with visual spatial tasks innovating inventing , visualising and gestalt reasoning [pattern completion] . In the case of catching a ball anticipating trajectory involves a degree of temporal fluidity projecting forward in time , that projection is where the myth of creativity and intuition comes from , not what is but what will or could be . The same process are at work when we play chess , we describe chess as a logical game . In contrast the left hemisphere analyzes processes and orders linguistic information , making sense of what has gone , the past tense .

    Source Encyclopedia of Psychology

    Research has confirmed that both hemispheres of the brain use high-level cognitive modes. That of the left brain is verbal and analytic, while right brain thought processes are rapid, complex, whole-pattern, spatial, and specialized for visual imagery and musical ability.

    The general characteristics of right-brain thought processes include the tendency to synthesize rather than analyze relating to ideas and concepts in a concrete rather than a symbolic fashion. Where left-brain thinking tends to represent wholes by abstraction (using one piece of information to represent something larger) the right brain is more likely to interpret data through analogies ( seeing relationships between wholes ). Right-brain functioning is non temporal, non sequential , holistic - gestalt and intuitive. Relying on leaps of insight, hunches or visual images. Discoveries about the right- and left-brain hemispheres have led some researchers and educators to advocate educational reforms that would allow right-brain modes of thought a greater place in the current educational system. Reflecting an overall tendency to over reward the verbal analytical left-brain skills to societies detriment. As split-brain researcher Roger Sperry winner of the 1981 Noble prize for Medicine notes, our educational system "tends to neglect the nonverbal form of intellect. What it comes down to is that modern society discriminates against the right hemisphere " It must be remembered lest the message is misunderstood , Sperry was a long way from the stereotype of a traditional academic , a star athlete in his own right a member of a number of varsity teams and the captain of the basketball team . When he talks about non verbal intellect you must assume that he is talking about the sort visual spatial mind that works for want of a better analogy like predictive text . The sort of mind that is given a workout when you play basketball , baseball , soccer but also chess .

    ' At age two, Jake Barnett was diagnosed with autism and his future was unclear. Now at age 13, Jake is a college sophomore and a math and science prodigy. Jake says his autism is key to his success. ' 60 minutes reports - Morley Safer

    Autism is a spectrum disorder. The symptoms and characteristics of autism can present themselves in a wide variety of combination's, from mild to severe. Although autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors, children and adults can exhibit any combination of the behaviors in any degree of severity. Two children, both with the same diagnosis, can act very differently from one another and have varying skills. You may hear different terms used for those within the spectrum, such as autistic-like, autistic tendencies, autism spectrum, high-functioning or low-functioning , more-abled or less-abled and Aspegers. More important than the term used is to understand that whatever the diagnosis, autistic does not mean can not learn or function productively . . Approximately 1 in 10 diagnosed with autism will have a savant aptitude which is 10 times the proportion in the general public .

    They stretch the boundaries from a young age , when they read, they can't just automatically match sounds and letters, so they use contextual cues and problem solving and no one may realize a problem exists .

    PROFILE - source UK accredited dyslexia organisations in the uk qualifying questionnaire



    A dictionary definition of dyslexia defines this condition as an - Impaired ability to learn to read . The dictionary definition reflects the popular perception of dyslexia as a literacy disorder . However this narrow definition is misleading , the word dys-lexia relates to dys - difficulty and lexia - of or relating to words . Lack of facility with words in one or all of it's forms , oral , written , symbolic , memory . This lack of facility is relative to overall ability , the gifted may fall well within average ability ranges and never realize full potential . The profile is a pattern of inconsistency . Even this definition lacks clarity and invites refutation from the highly verbal with excellent memories , and yet for all these quantified gifts. If you dig you will find inconsistencies , intelligence and potential often translates into academic and job under performance not out-performance .Suggesting the nature of the verbal intellect and memory being measured is not exactly the same intellect and memory required by educators and employers but an adaptation , a coping strategy .

    Below are a list of 12 questions used by accredited dyslexia bodies to determine if a full test for adults is warranted answering yes to any of these questions is cause for concern . Like hyperlexics dyslexics may exhibit exceptional visual abilities and aptitudes that border on the savant .

    Profile

    If you sub vocalize (read aloud in your head)
    If you find it hard to concentrate
    If the month's of the year your times table even the alphabet seems to dance in you minds eye
    If you can't remember messages or Jokes
    If you get halfway through a set of instruction
    If textbook or manuals lead to attention deficit and avoidance strategies
    If making more than one mental note is a waste of time
    If your train of thought is easily derailed and you struggle to pick up where you left off
    If giving a prepared speeches is to be avoided
    If you find it difficult to immediately apply new skills and knowledge
    If learning anything worthwhile is a repetitive boring and time consuming exercise
    If you can't remember what you have just read

    A contradiction may also be identified a contradiction that will not be found in the general population , this contradiction is usually associated with high aptitude . The paradox of dyslexia is that high aptitudes are often accompanied by deficits with the basics . Agatha Christie allegedly couldn't spell , Einstein couldn't do his sums , the easy tasks can be hard , the hard tasks easy .

    THE DYSLEXIA PARADOX

    In a 2010 poll 80% believed dyslexia to be form of mental retardation .

    William James (father of American psychology and brother of Henry James) is supposed to have had a conversation with an elderly lady who told him the Earth rested on the back of a huge turtle. “But, my dear lady”, James asked, “what holds up the turtle?” “Ah”, she said, “that’s easy. He is standing on the back of another turtle.” “But would you be so good as to tell me what holds up the second turtle?” “It’s no use, Professor”, said the lady with a snort of derision, “It’s turtles, turtles, turtles, all the way down.”


    Brock Eide "In short, dyslexia has a boatload of possible symptoms that makes it difficult to spot. And one of the biggest symptoms is one that educators rarely correlate: giftedness. Underneath all of the spelling mistakes and the trouble focusing, the backwards handwriting and the processing problems, dyslexics have a high tendency to be extremely smart. In fact, studies have shown that the average IQ of a child with dyslexia is routinely higher than that of the regular population."

    "They stretch the boundaries, from a young age" Brock Eide continues. "When they read, they can't just automatically match sounds and letters, so they use contextual cues and problem solving and no one may realize there's a problem." Dyslexics grow so good at problem solving, at finding alternative ways to compensate for the fact that they struggle with the written word, that they become expert brain stormers. "Dyslexic children often become some of society's greatest adult thinkers," Brock Eide says.

    THE UNIFIED THEORY

    ' If you had demanded that the N.I.H. solve the problem of polio, not through independent, investigator-driven discovery research but by means of a centrally directed program, you would end up with the very best iron lungs in the world - but you would not get the vaccine that eradicated polio.'

    DFES LINK - DYSLEXIA RESEARCH - OFFICIAL UK GOVERNMENT RESEARCH SITE :



    Based on the worlds most used method of correcting dyslexia

    .

    The unified theory and the Davis perception of dyslexia as a gift share the same basic premise, rather than viewing dyslexia as a pure deficit this explanation views dyslexia as a difference .

    TESTIMONIALS



    Attended classes in Munich , Einsteins learning was so poor he was told you will never amount to anything, he was an insult to the school , unaware that the problem was one of auditory focus , he was removed from the school , the teachers never saw his visual spatial brilliance , never saw his persistence, never saw his potential only the ineptitude of the future Nobel prize winner

    Imagination is more important then knowledge , while knowledge is limited , imagination encircles the world
