Checklist for students

  1. Does your mind wander when you are writing?
  2. Do you find it hard to find the right words when you are writing but can express yourself well in conversation?
  3. Do you think you should be able to read faster?
  4. Is it an effort to maintain your concentration when reading?
  5. Do words appear to float or move while reading?
  6. Does the page sometimes appear too bright or some of the letters seem to fade into the whiteness of the page?
  7. Do your eyes feel tired or do you ever experience headaches after reading?
  8. Are you aware of any tendency to turn or tilt the book or bring it closer to or further way from you while you are reading?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions you may wish to consult us.

The techniques we use include stress reduction glasses (sometimes coloured lenses), attention exercises, visualisation training, brain integration therapy.  We also advise upon computer usage and study habits.

The demands of higher education
As we progress through education, increasing demands are placed on our information processing.

    • Reading, listening, watching, feeling.
    • Learning is recognising the patterns and seeing similarities.
    • Using insight and visual concepts in the head...
    • Even when using words in the head.
    • With good vision there is less to learn, we can question everything that doesn't match, and we truly understand.
    • With good vision we can plan our reasoning and use less words to mean more. 
    • Strong vision is the key to successful memory.

We want students of all ages to learn how to use the visual areas of their brains to fully support learning.  This means developing better habits of seeing more, better eye movements when reading, and better attention when 'writing'.  This frequently means 'opening up' the mind to allow more information to flow.
