Dyslexia Help Nurture Their Nature: Universal Emotions of Learning

Questionnaire: Further Focus

Nature- is the maturation of the brain and body; for the purpose of survival, it’s the ability to perceive, give meaning, learn, and act including motivation and resilience of our very own environments (patterns first). Speaking of the “whole child”- the vagus nerve connects the brainstem to the body. It also connects and aligns the eight chakras, Pons, RAS & ACC/HPA and thymus including their own biofield (including electromagnetic field). This vagal balance allows the brainstem to receive the information (formulating patterned neural connections) from the environment, the midbrain to monitor and receive information (firing pattern of brain nerve cells in a network), and the frontal lobe to perceive the universal emotions which are the following: anger, strength, joy, bliss, shame, courage, compassion, and harmony. Executive functioning involves logic through analysis or evaluation; initially the thymus is where the mind deems how important (what or why). Executive functioning involves logic through analysis or evaluation; initially, the thymus is where the mind deems how important based on cellular memory (what or why). Then onto the frontal lobe where the “why” is based on context cues (evaluation) and the “what” is based on recursive aspects (analysis). The vagus nerve controls vagal balance and the executive functioning system (via the thymus- vagus nerve chakra). The thymus including the vagus nerve can be deactivated, hyperactivated, hypoactive, underdeveloped, or variably then going inactive in children (adults-too); therefore, releasing specific inflammatory proteins at the gut-brain axis which can be toxic to the triune brain [Retrieved from Sunny Sea Gold Updated January 27, 2021. “Here’s How the Brain Makes Memories-and What You Can Do to Keep Your Mind Sharp.” Health.com, www-health-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.health.com/mind-body/brain-memory-healthy-mind?amp=true]

Nurture- is the adaptation of children responding to the demands of the environment in ways that meet their own goals and function in a safe and secure way. Children with learning differences have deficits in brain plasticity- The brain’s remarkable ability to rewire itself throughout a person’s life is known as plasticity. The goal is spiritual mindsight and self-directed neuroplasticity- a child who has healthy neuroplasticity can heal their DNA via the thymus- vagus nerve chakra, and RAS & ACC/HPA including the connection to the consciousness (God awareness) and consistently being provided a safe, supportive, healthy, and loving environment that facilitates their natural inquiry of learning (see chapter 10). The main objective is to prevent kids from learning from primarily from learning with either their mental, emotional and etheric bodies (anger/shame). Along with rewiring their perceptions and filters of the parasympathetic (shame) and sympathetic (anger) response system during stress such as reading, their perceptions of anger and shame are their lens to how they view and listen to their very own existence in this universe. For anger, they need autonomy (I am Worthy) and attunement for shame (I am Enough)- both need the two Bs: body and breath (see below for more about the ABC’s of Self-directed Neuroplasticity).

Please ask yourself this question not from your brain, heart but from your mind these questions:


Is s/he frequently irritable? Does s/he overreact to small problems?

Does s/he have intense, angry outbursts? Does s/he have outbursts for little or no apparent reason? (specify situations in which outbursts occur)?

Published by Tricia Cook, MEd., Online Dyslexia and Behavioral Interventionist, RSP, AA O-G Tutor & Montessorian

My interest is in helping parents and teachers to understand learning and behavioral challenges and to love learning again. I graduated from Auburn in ECE in 1998. I have been a Montessori teacher here in Birmingham for almost 12 years and have lived in Birmingham for the past 19 years. As an early childhood teacher, I want continue to grow and develop as a constant learner. In 2012, I graduated from Secondary Education with a P-12 Reading Specialist certification the University of Alabama. As a Reading Specialist, I train on diversity and literacy development; I have a specialized knowledge of assessment and diagnosis that is vital for developing, implementing, and evaluating your literacy and neurodiversity behavioral, character development programing. Also, I have varying experiences designing instruction and environments for Montessori and Non-Montessori (OSR-Pre-K) environments. Therefore, I can consult for any environment or setting! In 2013, I attained my highly qualified status in ECE and Reading. In 2013, I also got my Orton-Gillingham AA tutor certification. I currently tutor full-time along with consulting. I have actually been tutoring since 2003. Along with other independent tutoring/interventionist experiences, I have brought dozens of students from an emergent to an advanced reading level! In addition to tutoring, I have provided the reading strengths and needs of my students and share that information to classroom teachers, parents, specialized teachers, and other stakeholders.  Lastly, I have also been a trainer/presenter, since 2008 and really enjoy this aspect of my career. As an experienced trainer, I have trained on many topics including: literacy (the five components), classroom management, positive discipline, diversity character development, Montessori Philosophy, policies and procedures, child development, and Alabama's Pre-k. Take note: Schools and families are desperately looking for an alternative type of affordable multi-sensory, hands-on, and interesting instruction. Currently, I am training and interested in writing on the following topics: A Comparison of Pre-K to Kindergarten; Adolescent Literacy (7th+); Assessment; Developing Readers; Children’s Literature; Classroom Management Techniques; Comprehension; Montessori Philosophy; Environmental Print & Early Writing; Family Attachment; Language and Literacy; Outdoor Classroom; Poetry Writing (7th+); Positive Guidance; Fine-motor Development; Cursive Writing; Creative Writing; Comprehension: Study Skills/Test Taking Strategies; Morphology; Phonics Instruction; Diversity Education; Neurodiversity Education; HandWriting; Reading Strategies; Best Practices P-12.
