How Ear Infections Cause Learning Delays
When my sons were little they would occasionally have an ear infection. However, it wasn't until I had a struggling learner, that I discovered the potential problems of having fluid in the ear could cause all kinds of havoc to his functional abilities. As he was going through the normal developmental steps, and even more profoundly; the neuro-developmental process (creating neuro-pathways between the brain and the body) fluid in the inner ear was gravely affecting his learning abilities due to distortion.
Dr. Jan will explain how this fluid and infection in the inner ear affect development of balance, motor skills, articulation, muscle tone and even eye convergence. Learn ways to release the ear canal fluid naturally and what to do as a preventative measure to avoid ear infections.
In this podcast, Brain Coach, Dr. Jan Bedell, covers the cascading negative consequences of ear infections. Those with Down Syndrome, or any children with small ear canals, are highly susceptible to developmental delays because of this reoccurring ear infections. Learning struggles, ADD, CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder), tonal processing and other auditory processing issues can result because of distortions that exist with fluid in the ears. You can relate to this distortion if you think about how it sounds when you are swimming and you go underwater. You will learn how this fluid and infection in the inner ear affects the development of balance, motor skills, articulation, muscle tone and even eye convergence. She addresses ways to release the ear canal fluid naturally and what to do as a preventative measure to avoid ear infections.
An added discussion about the significance of auditory processing skills as it relates to a person’s ability to hold pieces of information together for comprehension, to retain, store and recall information, follow directions, do phonics and more is included.
follow directions, read with phonics and more.
