Meditation for Dyslexia

Curve Curve

Studies have shown that meditation practice can play a major role in helping people with dyslexia make fewer general reading errors. Dyslexics with impaired lexical route function are able to read with greater accuracy with meditation to help them focus on their task and gain increased lexical route ability (in other words, the ability to recognise learned words without needing to 'work them out').

  • The problem

    In general, most people who experience this reading disorder have normal intelligence levels. That’s why it’s feels like such an irritating affliction. 

  • How it affects you

    As there is no issue with IQ, this suggests that one or more key areas of neurological functioning in reading and learning are somehow inhibited. 

    Instead of seeking targeted relief, improving overall brain function is likely to be far more beneficial.

  • How can Beeja help?

    There are many ways meditation can help our cognitive functioning. 

    During Beeja meditation the hippocampus, the processing unit of the brain which forms and accesses memories, grows larger, as does the pre-frontal cortex, which grows thicker and experiences a higher level of activation.

    The globalised brain functioning – unique to this technique – synchronises the different parts of the brain so that they work together, and creates better connections within the brain.

    The result is that we become able to discriminate between things in a more refined way, and we process information much quicker and more accurately.

    Meditation also improves our self-esteem and confidence so that our reading difficulties no longer define us.

    This sense of uplifting balance helps to combat any negative thoughts we were having about ourselves because of the dyslexia. 

    There is a large body of anecdotal evidence to suggest that meditation makes a significant difference in helping people overcome dyslexia. We are keen to participate in some formal studies, so if there are any researchers in this field who would like to investigate this area, please do get in touch.

“If you have kids who are struggling with dyslexia, the greatest gift you can give them is the sense that nothing is unattainable.”
