Wynford Dore & Rod Nicolson discuss the inspiration behind starting withZING. Rod Nicolson, located at Edge Hill University is particularly focused on dyslexia and why children struggle. His research has been developing for over 20 years, targeting the knowledge of dyslexia as a learning problem. Nicolson’s breakthrough showed that dyslexic children struggled with developing new skills, so he decided to target the area in the brain and focus on the root cause. This duo discuss intelligence, performance and testing within schools in England, and the problems that occur with these. Wynford and Nicolson discuss bright children, and the problems that they may have with the cerebellum in the brain.
Wynford Dore & Dr Amen discuss the cerebellum, a very important part of the brain which is often overlooked. Wynford talks about his personal experience with a struggling child, his own daughter suffered with learning difficulties so severe that she attempted to take her own life. They discuss withZING’s journey, from exploring new science in the cerebellum to helping huge amounts of children today. Wynford uses this podcast to talk about his desperate struggle to develop a programme that works for children, quickly finding the cerebellum’s role with children struggling with school.

Is your child a bit clumsy? Do they knock things over? Do they bump into the door frame? Are they not well coordinated with sports? A few even struggle to ride a bike. Remember that this is not a choice, they must have incomplete development in the part of the brain that helps with balance and coordination. Remember to be tolerant with your child about their clumsiness. Often they have a part of the brain that is not automatic yet, it can be developed with personalised exercises and vestibular stimulation.
If you’ve got a child that struggles with school, or is struggling with learning issues then you will be very conscious of what the symptoms are. Poor reading, poor writing, poor concentration and messy handwriting. Do these sound familiar? One of the big problems with the way we look at these children is that we focus on the symptoms instead of focusing on the root cause. Is it not far better to target the single root cause of these symptoms than to try and address each symptom separately?
