What is the ReadingOCI+ project

Without cost Schools get a method by which to improve
the reading and writing skills of pupils who have difficulties traditionally associated with dyslexia.
The method is meant to be integrated in the School Healthcare system.

Doc.Tapani Rahko has developed and used the method ReadingOCI positional treatment (OCI= otolith canal irritation ),.that diminishes and abolishes different difficulties in reading and coordination
Tampere-Kaleva Rotary club has decided to help spreading information on this treatment method.

FUNDING THE PROJECT BY SELLLING STAMPS
In order to help us develop the project and help minimize
problems caused by reading and writing problems
caused by dyslexia the public could contribute by buying
postage stamps published for funding.
This project has now been brought to an end.
We extend our thanks to all contributors.

 
Objective:  To help improve reading skills

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 is peripheral.
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.

TestOCI: With the tests it is clarified whether the OCI and BPPV based eye movement disturbances are found in the dyslexic person.
PractiseOCI : 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.
MinimizeOCI: The person maintains the effect with self-treatment the rest of his life

Hi, you got good grades. Yep, don't have dyslexia problems anymore.
