health & dyslexia: diet & nutrition – Introduction

Introduction to Diet, Nutrition & Dyslexia

vegFor many years there has been a lot of research to show that in some cases dyslexia and other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) could be due to a vitamin/mineral deficit.

Many scientific studies have shown that a nutritionally complete diet is necessary in the development of vision, learning ability and co-ordination. But, are our children getting a well balanced diet, or should they be taking supplements? Can taking supplements of fatty acids, zinc and iron cure dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD (ADD) and other SpLD’s?

Many parents who use these supplements say a resounding ‘yes’, and there now appears to be strong evidence to support this.
