Doc. Tapani Rahko has developed ReadingOCI
-method ( Otolith Canal Irritation) -positional treatment method.
It can abolish and diminish different difficulties connected
to reading and coordination. The reading- and learning ability
gets better in all age groups. ReadingOCI includes TestOCI-,
PractiseOCI- and MinimizeOCI parts. The greatest benefit is obtained
in children and youngsters.
During 10 years some 10 000 patients are tested and treated with
these methods. Some 3500 patients have read before and after
the treatments the test material. The results show an improvement
of 40 % of speed after the first treatment and the test persons
read statistically significantly more correctly. This affects
markedly positively even on other learning results.Continuous
life-long self-treatment diminishes dyslexia and learning difficulties
in our nearly 10 years experience. Estimated 600 million persons
globally have dyslexia of disturbing degree. In positional vertigo
, BPPV , and its more mild form ,OCI , otoconias ( very tiny
calcium carbonate granules ) move out of linear acceleration
sensing part of the equilibrium system, utriculus , to rotation
sensing parts: vestibular semicircular canals.
This phenomenon is more common than believed. It is hereditary
from the birth on. It is easier to be found with much more sensitive
Rahko WRW and Rahko tests.
The tiny granules in vestibular canals produce random disturbances
and resulting eye movement irregularities. Thus the picture at
retina is unclear and its memory in brain as well.
This presumes more effort by the brain and the result is worse.
The sight is deficient, the central foveolar area more inaccurate
and the width of clear sight field sideways more narrow.
This phenomenon imitates a central defect, although the background
This produces typically jumping of lines, the disappearence of
the interspaces between words, reading forward-backwards and
guessing. It is difficult to create a sensible sentence on the
basis of this situation. All these problems are corrected with
this method. This is based on visual background theory of dyslexia.
Later in the background part of the text the connections to other
possible backgrounds are reported. The peripheral functional
repairable dyslexia does not exclude varying degrees of from
very small to big of central structural background.
With the tests it is clarified whether the OCI and BPPV based
eye movement disturbances are found in the dyslexic person.
: On the basis of TestOCI result it is possible to abolish the
problem in half an hour positional treatment process. It consist
of series of simple head movements sequences.
The person maintains the effect with self-treatment the rest
of his life
