Mary: treating “dyslexia”

Mary was seven years old when she was referred for help. She was a very bright, articulate, compassionate and fun loving little person. She was also experiencing great difficulties in her first grade classroom.


Ruth is in Grade 0. She is a friendly girl of average build who seems eager to please, but finds it difficult to comply with instructions. She is easily distracted and is constantly fidgeting or moving on her chair. Her teacher and parents are concerned about her school behavior and lack of ‘school readiness’ and also very concerned about her habit of masturbating openly during rest time in the afternoons.


Jason was 11 years old and in Grade 5 when his parents approached ILT. According to the school, he was struggling. In spite of showing excellent verbal abilities, he could not write legibly at all. He didn’t take part in any sport. He wanted to play rugby but could not catch the ball. He was always in conflict with his class mates for pushing them when standing in line. Not knowing how to help, his teachers recommended that he attend a remedial school.


John, aged 8 years and 4 months, is a delightful child who cooperated willingly during the evaluation. However, he was having problems paying attention at school and at home. He experiences difficulties completing tasks in class and his parents and teacher are concerned about the poor progress he is making at school.
