Timing is Everything - Dyslexia, ADHD, Auditory Processing, Sensory Integration....

Well, uh maybe not everything, but certainly a lot. Today there are software, learning, and therapy centers sprout up all over the country to 'train' children with learning problems (like Cogmed or DDAT) like ADHD, dyslexia, or 'sensory integration'.

Even fairly simple learning activities require the coordination of multiple brain regions over time, mild difficulties here and uneven processing there can disrupt the 'rhythm' of taking information in.

Because the sensory (including the 5 senses) and motor systems learn by doing, repetitive and incrementally challenging activities can improve sensory-sensory and sensory-motor coordination and benefits can extend beyond the simple activities performed.

The picture below shows the different areas of brain that help coordinate visual and auditory timing.
