Scientific Support

Escalating brain imaging studies over the past two decades have independently validated Dr Levinson's pioneering discovery that the cerebellum plays a crucial role in dyslexia and a score of related disorders. Importantly, Levinson's "challenging" research over the past four decades has been supported by a wide range of outstanding neurophiologists, clinicians and educators — including Noble Prize-winning cerebellar researcher, Sir John Eccles.

Favorable Comments About Dr. Levinson's Research

"Dr. Levinson…your 3-D Optical Scanner for screening dyslexia is fascinating. Dyslexia is indeed related to the cerebellum…"

Sir John Eccles, Nobel laureate, cerebellar research

"Your emphasis on a cerebellar contribution to learning disabilities and emotional disorders meshes very well with our own overviews."

Henrietta and Alan Leiner, neuroscientists

"A marvelous resource to share with parents of our children with dyslexia…a model to all who do research with the hope of making life better for others."

Joan M. Smith, Ed.D., licensed speech pathologist and educational psychologist, Melvin-Smith Learning Center, Sacramento, California

"An important contribution, linking years of clinical experience with recent discoveries. This book provides a wealth of clearly presented clinical information. It is appealing to both the parent and the professional. Unique and tantalizing… Dr. Levinson's work convincingly describes the discovery and implementation of a nontraditionalist scientific method resulting in a dramatically successful method of medical treatment."

Reuven Kohen-Raz, Ph.D., professor emeritus, the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, former chairman, Department of Special Education

"There is little doubt that Dr. Levinson's multimodal approach to dyslexic patients and various medications can improve reading and writing skills. I recommend this book and believe in the author's approach to these children, many of whom benefit from his diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and management."

J. T. Jabour, MD., Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"Dr. Levinson has obviously drawn on extensive practical experience and a thorough review of relevant basic science and research data. This book should give hope to parents of children who have experienced phobias, balance disorders, dis­ equilibrium, and learning disabilities."

Kenneth M. Grundfast, M.D., chairman, Department of Otolaryngology, Children's Hospital, National Medical Center

"This text is brilliantly written…may well prevent the bruising of the self-esteem and egos of young schoolchildren."

Leonard S. Girsh, M.D., director, Allergy & Clinical Immunology, Medical College of Pennsylvania, and chairman, Neuro-Allergy Committee, American College of Allergists

"Smart But Feeling Dumb for the first time catalogues in an easy-reading manner the various presentations of dyslexia. It brings hope to the many afflicted and will spur relevant research in this area to further improve the concepts and treatment."

Kenneth H. Brookler, M.D., M.S., F.R.C.S.C., F.A.C.S., past president, American Neurotology Society, and clinical professor of otolaryngology, New York Medical College

"Magnificent…a spectacular breakthrough…a monumental step forward in managing learning disabilities and the attending frustrations."

Wallace Rubin, M.D., clinical professor of otorhinolaryngology and biocommunication, Louisiana State University of Medicine
