"If someone had told me a year ago that my son Andreas would become a bookworm, I would have shaken my head in disbelief," says Susanne Lenz* from the Munich. The 13-year-old has a reading and spelling disorder. "Andreas is dyslexic. He has difficulties in quickly grasping the words of a text correctly. His brain builds in mistakes somewhere," Susanne Lenz explains. Before the boy started with neurofeedback training a year ago, reading caused him great problems. Today, the mother experiences her son as a real avid reader.
Thanks to computer-assisted neurofeedback therapy, Andreas who is autistic is making progress not only in reading, but also in his social life. "I observe that he has become more open towards people," says the mother.
