Author of See It. Say It. Do It! The Parent's & Teacher's Action Guide to Creating Successful Students & Confident Kids
The book is filled with anecdotal stories and vague references such as "research has shown", without providing enough details of such research from which to determine how effective their treatment actually was. At times the authors use terms that they do not define and are not listed in either the glossary or the index.
I was hoping that at a minimum, some of the exercises could be useful for some of my patients. However, the instructions are not clear and incomplete. For example, The Peripheral Expansion exercise refers to a chart in the book with the instructions to stare at the dot in the center of the chart while looking at surrounding letters. However, there is no dot in the center of the chart.
Another exercise, the Infinity Walk describes walking in a figure eight while "looking at a specific object in the room-a visual
target". However, there is no explanation of where that target should be (e.g. In front, to the side, eye level, ground level), nor what to do with the gaze when turning around.
It's too bad the book wasn't better written as there is a need for this information. Unfortunately, the style in which it is written makes it easy for critically thinking patients and professionals to dismiss the content.
