  • 9. Today, an estimated one third of all children have some type of reading problem. <ul><li>Lack of focus </li></ul><ul><li>Dyslexia </li></ul><ul><li>Tracking deficiencies </li></ul><ul><li>ADD or ADHD </li></ul><ul><li>Fluency problems </li></ul><ul><li>Decoding inabilities </li></ul><ul><li>Poor comprehension </li></ul>
  • 10. Dr. Akihiro Kawamura (developed and patented the brain enhancement technology in the eyeQ program) <ul><li>Ph.D in education </li></ul><ul><li>25 years experience training and testing </li></ul><ul><li>Over 2 million have used his program </li></ul><ul><li>Authored or co-authored 92 books on the brain, learning, and speed-reading </li></ul><ul><li>Received “The Emperor’s Award” in Japan for his contribution to the education and culture of the people of Japan </li></ul>
  • 11. Subvocalization <ul><li>We all learned to read and say one word at a time. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of us still read the same way, reading and saying one word at a time! </li></ul>
  • 12. The eyeQ program helps eliminate “subvocalization” by teaching us to read multiple words at a time. Subvocalization
  • 13. When you learn to process three words at a time, instead of just one, you have tripled your reading speed! Subvocalization
  • 14. <ul><li>Series Processing: </li></ul><ul><li>Compare to typing one letter at a time </li></ul><ul><li>Parallel Processing: </li></ul><ul><li>Compare to scanning a document one page at a time </li></ul>Processing
  • 15. Comprehension <ul><li>Increased focus = increased comprehension </li></ul><ul><li>After reading speed increases, focus on comprehension </li></ul><ul><li>Improved vocabulary = better comprehension </li></ul><ul><li>Using the: Preview, Read, Review method , substantially increases comprehension </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition down neuro-pathways increases long-term memory </li></ul>
  • 16. f MRI Study
  • 17. Difference in the brain of novice readers & skilled readers
  • 18. English Language Learners <ul><li>To learn to read English, ELL students must first learn and understand English vocabulary </li></ul><ul><li>High-speed imaging awakens the brain and assists in learning </li></ul><ul><li>eyeQ activates the visual cortex, improving learning and memory </li></ul>
  • 19. Taking Timed Tests <ul><li>Many students freeze when taking tests due to stress and restricted blood flow. </li></ul><ul><li>Slow readers often run out of time and guess on the last 20% or more of a test. </li></ul><ul><li>Poor readers must reread material multiple times to understand the question. </li></ul><ul><li>Skilled readers have time to review questions that they were unsure of. </li></ul>
  • 20. Auditory Processing Ability <ul><li>Dr. Kawamura found that students can only follow the teacher at the speed they read. </li></ul><ul><li>If the teacher is speaking at 250 Words per Minute (WPM), and the student reads at 125 WPM, he/she only catches 50% of what the teacher says. </li></ul>
  • 21. Effective Reading Speed (ERS) <ul><li>ERS measures not only reading speed but also comprehension </li></ul><ul><li>EyeQ tracks ERS whenever students take comprehension tests </li></ul><ul><li>ERS should only be measured when beginning eyeQ and then after Session #8 </li></ul>
  • 22. Improving Reading Effectiveness <ul><li>Preview the material (table of contents) to build the structure of what you are about to learn </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Quickly read material for general understanding </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Change headings into questions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Read material for comprehensive understanding </li></ul><ul><li>Review the material again the night before an exam </li></ul>
  • 23. The Eye-Brain Connection
  • 24. Field of Vision <ul><li>Measure your field of vision by holding arms straight out in front of you, fingers together pointing upward. </li></ul><ul><li>Move fingers slowly apart while looking straight between them </li></ul><ul><li>When you cannot see both fingers with absolute clarity, you have exceeded your true field of vision </li></ul>
  • 25. Benefits of Increasing Your “Field of Vision” <ul><li>Ability to see multiple words at a time, significantly improving reading speed </li></ul><ul><li>Greater peripheral vision </li></ul><ul><li>Faster reaction time </li></ul><ul><li>Improvement in sports ability </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to scan material quickly when searching the internet </li></ul>
  • 26. Music and Learning <ul><li>Scientific studies show that certain music can improve concentration </li></ul><ul><li>Music helps the student relax and reduce stress </li></ul><ul><li>Improves the environment for learning </li></ul><ul><li>Can actually assist in recall of information </li></ul>
  • 27. EyeQ Engages Multiple Senses <ul><li>Visual exercises </li></ul><ul><li>Metronome clicking sound programs the brain to read at a consistent speed </li></ul><ul><li>Tactile learning using the eye-brain imaging book </li></ul><ul><li>Interactive games to awaken the right brain </li></ul>
  • 28. Right Brain / Left Brain <ul><li>Right brain students tend to learn imaging skills more easily </li></ul><ul><li>Left brain students tend to focus on every detail, slowing the learning process </li></ul><ul><li>The eyeQ program alternates exercises between the left and right brain to enhance whole brain learning </li></ul><ul><li>Engaging the right brain enhances memory, focus, and creativity </li></ul>
  • 29. Brain Function <ul><li>Plasticity of our brains </li></ul><ul><li>Brain exercises maintain healthy brains </li></ul><ul><li>Our brain’s constantly create new brain cells </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of cognitive brain activity results in brain atrophy </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Note: Watching TV is a passive brain activity </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  • 30. Universal Intervention Actual results from schools using eyeQ <ul><li>Eskimo children </li></ul><ul><li>Deaf and Hard of Hearing </li></ul><ul><li>Citrus High School </li></ul><ul><li>Brigham Young University </li></ul><ul><li>Beyond Tutoring </li></ul><ul><li>Utah Valley University (math classes) </li></ul>
