A Pilot Study of Applied Kinesiology in Helping Children with Learning Disabilities

"All of the children in the treatment group made significant gains in IQ scores. An average increase of 8 Full Scale IQ points and 12 performance IQ points was obtained. Most children showed significant gains in visual perceptual organization. Some made significant gains in other important skills such as short-term auditory memory. Significant improvements were observed both at home and at school with regard to motivation, attitude and performance."

Reports from treatment included:   "Dyslexia teacher says he no longer needs help." "No more thumb sucking." "Asthma much better on the whole."
