Studies have validated the premise that Attention Deficit Disorder is a reliable predictor of motor skill deficiencies. It has also been identified that approximately half of all children with developmental coordination disorders suffer from varying degrees of ADHD and that children with motor skill disorders experience restricted reading abilities. A variety of motor skill and sequencing abilities are also necessary for cognitive and social interactions with others and the environment. Individuals must be able to construct complex patterns in order to carry out multistep activities at home, work and school. There is significant correlation between the neural network weaknesses that have been identified in connection with ADD/ADHD and those involved in the regulation of brain timing, motor skills and planning.
A person’s ability to improve motor skill efficiency and brain timing impacts their ability to improve basic sequencing needs. It is apparent that these abilities are necessary for academic achievement and that the failure to master them is a significant inhibitor of academic success. Activities that are designed to address the inefficiencies in the neural networks that are involved can be very helpful in changing the physiological conditions in the brain that are contributing to the difficulty.
It is in this way that the Learning Breakthrough Program improves brain sequencing.
