Updated: May 11, 2020

In my last blog post, we talked about the difficulties your child may be facing with writing, reading, coping from the board and reading comprehension. We also learnt that under-developed Bilateral Integration ( BI ) can greatly contribute to these problems.

If possible do try to read my last post first then continue with this. You may come up with great ideas of your own once you see the logic of it....
