AND READING CLOSELY LINKED
anyone you know has always tended to be short of breath: he has
probably also had difficulties in finishing a task. --Perhaps
even a short attention span. In fact, many of those who are short-winded
have a hard time reading. Many reading problems may correct just
by improving people's breathing patterns.
research which various authorities and institutions may or may not
allow to be done: it appears that at least half of all high school
or college age persons who have serious reading problems, are shortwinded,
and their reading problems would disappear if their short-windedness
discovered this surprising relationship in 1983, and no contravention
of the finding has ever emerged, but word on this finding has been
slow to spread. This finding is news to most of you reading this.
Why should you believe such a startling relationship? --You shouldn't.
But don't believe the automatic dismissal by the authorities to
whom we've entrusted our children either. You can make your own
immediate personal test of the matter to your own satisfaction this

who have reading difficulties for other reasons, to ensure job security
for all those now entrusted with getting our children to read.
The same problem
also affects levels of perception and thinking. If someone is too
shortbreathed to have a span of awareness in which several
different elements can be considered at the same time, there is
no way for that person to begin experiencing and thinking in
terms of relationships! - He is doomed to the very most concrete
levels of thinking and experience only.

a way to address such problems of language-comprehension and perceptual/
