AIM: Aim of this paper was to demonstrate that language can be considered as an answer to what we are able to perceive. This depends on the way in which the central nervous system elaborates the two aspects of energy of the internal and external space according to the new theory of the cognitive process by the author, which underlies her relevant re-educative methodology.
METHODS: This study was carried out in Italy, in pre-high school education where students with moderate learning abilities and special needs are integrated into mainstream education. The performance of F 81 subjects was examined. They were divided into two groups: the first supported by A. Bernardini’s method, the second supported by a remedial teacher (traditional method). The control group being the rest of the class. For five months, tailored programs were followed three times a week, for one hour and a half.
RESULTS: At the end of the treatment the second group did not show any significant result, while the first group showed marked improvement. Among the students of the first group, Tobia was the student who best represented dyslexia; for this reason he has been taken as an example.
CONCLUSION: Dyslexia and disturbances in language learning depend on perceptive deficits and can be recovered by A. Bernardini’s method according to her new theory of the cognitive process. This last revolutionizes the principles of the current educational and re-educational method.
