Learning challenged how?

brainOne of the things I find over and over again in working with people, is a certain disconnect between left and right hemisphere. The information and knowledge available on the left side and the information and knowledge on the right side just don’t seem to connect. Which results in being able to do one thing, but not in combination with another activity.

It’s the person you go on a walk with – and every time conversation starts to happen, they just stop walking in order to talk. (often this is masked by “looking at something else” as a cover-up ~ because not being able to walk and talk at the same time is judged by others!)

In this simple example of reading ~ it means being able to see the letters, name the letters, however not being able to put the letters together to form the word. An ongoing struggle for a lot of people who we label as “dyslexic”.

Or as my friend Michael Hagedorn ( check him out at crataegus.com) says, there’s the word ‘fork’ on the left side and the right side of his brain will come up with three images simultaneously. Hard to choose which on is the ‘appropriate’ image!

I will start blogging on tools you can use yourself to help with these issues soon!

Learning challenges….

What does it mean – learning challenges?

In reality we all experience learning challenges in one way or another. There are those tasks we just seem to not be able to complete, skills we have a hard time learning, movements that always feel awkward. Then we slap a label on them (I’m simplifying a bit here!) and you’ll ‘have to learn to live with it’…………

Some do, some don’t.

There are many options these days to address learning challenges in a different, gentler, effective and inspiring way. One of the major tools I use in my practice is the ‘art of muscle-testing’  ~  a bio-feedback system that let’s us tune into the person’s body/mind/field in a very accurate way to pin-point what is happening that is causing the challenge. Once we can establish that, we can create a plan of action on how to diminish/delete that challenge.

It’s not that hard, it’s just different from what we’ve been trained to think!
