Grounding can have dramatic effects on reducing many different learning difficulties; we have found it to be the missing and essential ingredient. We teach grounding through an extremely simple exercise that everyone can do.
Before we go any further this has nothing to do with being grounded, i.e. sent to your room for bad behaviour!
In 2011, when writing Bridges to Success – How to Transform Learning Difficulties, I came across a book called Earthing – the most important health discovery ever? by Clinton Ober, Stephen Sinatra and Martin Zucker. There are many references to their work in Bridges to Success. In our experience grounding (or earthing as americans tend to say) is so essential to those experiencing learning difficulties it is the first thing we teach for many and varied reasons. We have always had a very inclusive approach support other approaches wherever possible.
Since then we have learnt more and more about how to assist children, family members and teachers to improve Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, ADHD, Aspberger’s, Autism; the need for grounding has become fundamental to our student’s success along with the other skills we teach.
I recently discovered a film on http://www.kroschelfilms.com/grounded that is invaluable to help your understanding; I really recommend watching it, free on-line.
