About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

As you read his moving story—and the stories of many other inspiring individuals presented in these pages—you will grow, as I did, in excitement and optimism. Tell teachers, tell other adults and professionals, tell the world that there is a too-well-kept secret that can help kids with so-called learning differences become champions.
—Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., ADD/ADHD expert, best selling author, and founder of the Hallowell Centers

I can wholeheartedly recommend this book and its lifesaving content to all parents and professionals interested in bringing hope and significant help to millions of desperate people suffering from learning disabilities.
—Harold N. Levinson, M.D., author of Smart But Feeling Dumb and director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities

A Life in Balance should be read and kept by every parent who has a child that has difficulty in learning to read, to write, and to copy from a book; a child who cannot concentrate for any period of time (ADD/ADHD) or has poor coordination—Dyspraxia.
—Peter Blythe, Ph.D., founder, the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology (INPP), author, and international lecturer

About the Author

In the mid-1960s, Frank Belgau was an elementary school teacher with a revolutionary idea: What if the children our education system had given up on—the ones the experts called “brain injured or retarded”—could actually learn to read?

Forty years later, Belgau’s remarkable insights into the nature and treatment of learning disabilities have fundamentally changed our understanding of the mind—and given thousands of young people the gift of literacy.

Written by his son, Eric, A Life in Balance documents Frank Belgau’s heroic attempts to uncover unconventional practices that would unlock their real potential. At its heart was one clear goal: Discovering what would create an immediate, observable improvement in reading. It’s a journey that culminates in the development of the Learning Breakthrough Program, Belgau’s cutting-edge (yet remarkably simple) therapeutic approach of precise movements and balance that dramatically improves our ability to learn, focus, and pay attention.

More than a treatise, A Life in Balance is an in-the-trenches look at the ceaseless research, powerful personalities, and supreme resistance Belgau encounters in this single-minded effort. And it’s a moving story of one man who, along with his wife Beverely, simply wouldn’t give up on the most vulnerable among us when others would.
