Language, Anxiety and Learning Problems Frequently Occur in ADHD
Two independent studies published online April 21 in Pediatrics found that both receptive and expressive
language problems as well as related learning problems occurred more frequently in children with ADHD, as did anxiety.
According to Dr. Harold Levinson, the overlapping of speech, learning and anxiety disorders in ADHD just reported in Pediatrics
was not explained. However, Levinson’s research over the past few decades reported that all the above disorders overlap or are comorbid for a very simple reason: They’re all caused by a common problem within the inner-ear and its supercomputer, the cerebellum.
Dyslexia, ADHD and related speech, anxiety and other symptoms result when diverse normal brains structures fail to adequately process the scrambled or dizzy signal resulting from a fine-tuning dysfunction within the inner-ear. Thus their frequent overlapping. Importantly, all the above disorders improve when patients are treated with simple and safe combinations of inner-ear-enhancing meds which stabilize signals.
