A controversial drug-free method of treatment for learning disabilities, the Dore program has been hotly debated in the medical community. In this account, the man who began it all shares how dyslexia impacted his life and why the program he created works, complete with success stories. One man's quest to help his daughter led to the start of a whole new way of treating learning and attention difficulties, and this is their astounding story. When she was only nine years old, Susie Dore was diagnosed as dyslexic and told that nothing could be done to help her. Her increasing depression eventually led to three suicide attempts. Wynford set about finding a way to help her, selling his multi-million dollar business and pouring his fortune into researching dyslexia and learning difficulties. His team of researchers showed that, almost invariably, these problems are caused by an incomplete physiological development and that an answer to them might be found in a specialized exercise program. This revolutionary book captures the findings that Dore proponents believe will change the way dyslexia and ADHD are approached forever. It explains the theory behind the ideas and, through a series of case studies, demonstrates the success stories and how these ideas have changed the lives of so many for good. It is invaluable reading for anyone involved with or affected by dyslexia or any other learning difficulty.
Wynford Dore founded the Dore Achievement Centre in 2000. There are now 50 centers worldwide.
