Dyslexia and BAL-A-VIS-X


<< Back to Musings

In school it took me, on average, three years to complete two consecutive grades. In fourth grade everything ground to a halt. I had no clue what was going on. All I knew was that I didn't understand. One day in the fall I did not want to go to school. After sending me to school because I had no fever, my mother found me walking home as she went out to do errands. At that point she realized that something was seriously wrong and she arranged for me to be tested. The outcome was the discovery that I was word blind (dyslexic). I was given Gesell tutoring, which made school somewhat manageable.

Looking back now that I'm older, I can see the ways in which I was locked in my head. There were a lot of thoughts that didn't find their way out when needed. One of the characteristics of my dominance profile is that my verbal ability shuts down under pressure. One day in 2008 I got stuck, not being able to hold my own in a conversation that had triggered strong emotions. I realized that the time had come to find a remedy for this problem. I decided to go to Eliza Bergeson for Brain Gym to deal with the effects of dyslexia. In the process of working with her, I was introduced to Bal-A-Vis-X. The Brain Gym helped me overcome the triggers. After practicing Bal-A-Vis-X regularly and taking one of Bill Hubert's trainings, I find I'm no longer locked up in my head with things I want to say. I can hold my own in most situations now.
