The Role of Essential Fatty Acids On the Neurochemistry of the Brain

Neurology of a Problem - The Pathogenesis of Autism

The 3 R's: Reading Righting Rehabilitation
The ability to learn to read, the ability to learn to express oneself starts from birth on. If one is not afforded the opportunity to develop total neurological organization, the child cannot become totally human and as a result cannot communicate at the level, at which the child might have been able to, had neurological organization been completed.

Anatomy of a Problem - Reading and Language Difficulty

For decades, it has been well established that one child in five has serious reading difficulties. Many systems of special teaching have been tried.

In his paper "Ontogeny of Reading Problems" presented to Claremont Reading Conference in 1963, Dr Carl Delacato, Ed.D reasoned that "the process by which one attains the ability to read - the ability to learn to express oneself starts at birth. If the child is not afforded the opportunity to develop total neurological organisation, the child cannot become totally "human", and as a result cannot communicate at the level at which the child might have been able to, had neurological organisation been completed."

Revealing Autism - The Secrets of Autistic Behaviour. Rehabilitation establishing new learning connections with Sensory Integration Therapy

Whoever has to deal with autism, whether that person be a parent or a professional, has to be able to answer two questions; what caused the syndrome and how to cure it.

In this study course, we answer both these questions in a neurological perspective. What causes the autistic syndrome is a disorder of the central nervous system, due to mild, but diffuse brain injury; We also suggest a sensorial-perceptive neuro-rehabilitation therapy for the natural learning progress to be reintroduced.

Behaviour, Learning, and Mobility Cause and Effect of Rehabilitation

In 1953, after 1 year of working with Temple Fay in Philadelphia, Carl Delacato, Bob and Glen Doman gave a presentation in New York to the Staff of the Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, which contained the following pronouncement. "It must be considered as a basic principal that, when a lesion exists within the confines of the brain, treatment to be successful must be directed at the brain, wherein lies the cause, rather than to that portion of the periphery where the symptoms are reflected. Whether the symptoms exist in an almost undetectable subtlety in human communication or in an overwhelming paralysis, this principal must not be violated by those seek success with the brain-injured patient".

This statement refers to the current Delacato Method of Neurological Rehabilitation as therapy for Sensory Impaired children resulting from brain injury or as a result of incomplete Neurological Organisation, and calls into doubt the assertions and conclusions of the American Academy of Pediatrics in their 1999 Policy Statement criticising Delacato Therapy (as related to Doman-Delacato Therapy).
