The many years and chapters of our lives make us who we are today. Wes Beach is no exception to that. Wes works with adults and children with learning difficulties. When I asked Wes how he chose this profession he said there were several events in his life that helped him get there and succeed. For 20 years Wes was co-owner of a daycare which gave him insights into both working with and coaching parents and children. During that time Wes studied extensively about emotions, relationships, parenting and many healing modalities. In addition to that, Wes also ran two successful businesses, raised two children, and successfully participated in community life. He said his determination, confidence and will helped him push through and succeed even though Wes struggled with some learning difficulties himself.
For most of his life Wes could read, and he could tell you what individual words meant, but he could not process the meaning of sentences. He had to read a page at least seven times before he could understand its content. It took him a very long time to read anything. He lacked confidence in any situation involving reading. He tried many things over the years attempting to overcome his reading difficulties, but nothing was successful. He lived a large portion of his life that way, struggling to process and comprehend what he read. It was frustrating, and he didn’t think things would ever change.
Then one day he heard about someone who might be able to help him. Her name was Susan McCrossin. She lived in Boulder, Colorado. As soon as he was able, he was on a flight to Boulder with Susan’s book in hand. He struggled to read seven pages of the book on the five-hour flight.
Once he arrived in Boulder, Susan worked with him intensively for eight hours over the next two days, using a new technique. On the flight home, he started reading her book again. Nothing seemed different at first, but all of a sudden he realized he was on Chapter Two. He had completed 100 pages in the time it had taken him to read seven pages only three days earlier! This was an amazing feeling for him. Finally, something had worked, and reading became much easier.
Now Wes loves reading. He understands content without having to reread things, and he feels more confident. It may sound like a miracle cure, or maybe science fiction, but it’s Wes’s story, and a familiar one to many others who have completed Crossinology® Brain Integration Technique (BIT). He went from being stressed in any situation where reading was required, to being self-confident and at ease. Wes’s life has become much easier as a result, and he can read for enjoyment as well as for education.
After experiencing BIT for himself, Wes went back to school to learn BIT to help other people with learning difficulties. He began working with people using BIT in 2007, and in 2009 he became certified. Wes finds great joy in helping people of all ages find or rediscover the benefits and pleasure of a well-functioning brain. BIT is based on the principles of Applied Physiology and is completely non-invasive. The technique used is soothing, even relaxing, and helps the client feel calmer, more confident, and more in control.
This technique works for other types of learning disabilities in addition to difficulty with reading. It can permanently improve symptoms of ADD/ADHD and dyslexia without drugs or supplements. There are four major areas in which improvement will be noticed almost immediately. They are focus, academics, balance, and emotions.
When Wes begins work with a client, an assessment is done to determine which areas of the brain need treatment, and how long treatment will last. Everyone is different, so no two people receive exactly the same remedy. Often, in addition to the 8-16 hours of BIT therapy, Wes will assign homework. If the learning difficulty involves mathematics, there will be a need for the client to go back and relearn what was missed over the years due to the learning difficulty. After treatment, this task will be possible and much easier than it was the first time around. If a child was previously working with a tutor, the tutor will still be required, but getting caught up to where the child should be will be much faster and easier. BIT works best when student, teacher, tutor, and health care professional all work together to achieve the desired result.
The same applies to lessons about getting and staying organized, staying on task, and completing a project in the allotted time. BIT opens the brain pathways which allow new behaviors to be learned. Organization and getting things done become possible. There are also suggestions to improve memory and impulse control. All of these things benefit a child or adult scholastically, professionally, personally and emotionally.
Wes knows from experience how frustrating and demoralizing a learning difficulty can be. Parents try everything to get their child help, and nothing works. Adults try and try to stay focused and organized but they are not successful. He knows that BIT works, because it worked for him as well as thousands of others. He personally saw the results immediately, and realized that he could help others do the same. Taking what he has learned about Crossinology and BIT, he is now able to make life easier for many children and adults with his practice. His office, The Learning Improvement Center, LLC., (LearningImprovementCenter.com) is at 1293 Hendersonville Rd. in South Asheville.
Give Wes a call or come to a free talk about how the brain processes information, and how the problems can be permanently corrected in adults and children with no drugs or supplements.
