RoundUp, GMOs, Autism, ADHD and Other Autoimmune Conditions

We interviewed Stephanie Seneff PhD, a senior research scientist at MIT, about RoundUp, GMOs, autism, ADHD and other autoimmune conditions. Dr. Seneff is well known for her published, peer-reviewed research articles about the dangers of GMOs and the pesticide that is sprayed on them, RoundUp (glyphosate). Sometimes, it’s not necessarily the food that’s making our children sick, it’s what’s been done to it. Dr. Seneff’s research reviews how GMOs and RoundUp cause pathology in the body that can lead to: Neurodevelopmental damage Gut dysbiosis Inflammation Enzyme suppression Toxicity Nutritional deficiencies Her research indicates that sulfate deficiency throughout the body caused by toxic environmental chemicals is behind most modern diseases and conditions.

We interviewed Eve Kodiak – musician, educator, healer and writer – about practical reflex integration for every body on and off the spectrum.

Examples of neurodevelopmental disorders are autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, dyslexia, learning disabilities, apraxia/dyspraxia and developmental delays.

Berard Auditory Integration Training (AIT)

Berard Auditory Integration Training (AIT)

We interviewed Sally Brockett about Berard Auditory Integration Training (AIT), which can improve focus, attention and learning in children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as: Autism ADD/ADHD Learning disabilities Dyslexia Retained reflexes Sensory Processing Disorder Children with auditory and sensory processing problems have difficulty interpreting daily experiences because the capacity to hear and communicate is compromised. Your child may benefit from AIT if they experience: Poor attention Slower thinking and processing Difficulty listening, understanding, and remembering Incorrectly understanding and following directions Brain “traffic jams” when processing sensory information Hindered ability to put ideas in sequence Sound hyper (over-sensitive) and hypo-sensitivity (tuned out) Low tolerance for distractions The Berard method of Auditory Integration Training (AIT) helps reorganize the brain to improve auditory and sensory processing capabilities so the brain no longer gets overloaded with disorganized information. Language, learning and social abilities develop more normally, and children are better able to excel as a result. This method of auditory training was originally developed…

The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning

The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning

The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning

We interviewed Wendy Beth Rosen, author of The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning: Why Millions of Learning-Disabled Children Are Misdiagnosed. The symptoms of many vision problems can mimic disorders such as dyslexia and ADHD. Vision-related learning problems affect 25% of school-age children, yet knowledge about these types of vision problems is scant. There is a difference between vision and eyesight, and there’s more to vision than 20/20. Wendy learned these facts when she found out that her own daughter fell below grade level in written expression. It turns out that she had a previously undiagnosed condition that caused her to see double, which made it difficult for her to track lines of print on a page.
