Amy's blog is located at Jqlian Arts Guild Artist Of The Month: Rex Harrison Displays At The Library Artist of the Month from the Julian Art Guild at the Julian Library is Rex Harrison. Visit the Julian Branch library to see original watercolors painted by Rex Harrison of Warner Springs. Harrison who has been painting for the past six years has fifteen paintings on display on a variety of Subjects. Harrison transforms many photographs he has taken in the area or on vacation into very realistic paintings. Rex Harrison was born in Los Angeles, CA in March of 1940. He has been married to his wife, Betty for 55 years, and they have three children, Scott, Marc, and Jeannie Marie. They also have 9 grandchildren. Rex received his Associate of Arts degree in Industrial Technology from Golden West College in 1982, and went on to receive his bachelor's degree from California State University, Long Beach in 1984. His introduction to art was through the lens of a camera, for many years taking photographs and teaching photography. He was introduced to drawing at Golden West College and again at Long Beach State, where he continued to take drawing classes. He started taking watercolor classes from Carol Ravy in 2008 at Stone Ridge in Warner Springs. Rex states that his wife Betty was the catalyst, as "she more or less pushed me in that direction as I was recuperating from surgery•" Harrison enjoys putting several pictures together to create a more interesting painting• The Final Journey continued from page 5 and legs• It is to be expected, and comfort medications can help with this to a point.

My and unfocused. The fingernails become bluish in color, the feet and knees are cold and bluish when the patient is very close to their death. In the final moments you may noticed the patient is breathing with their mouth open and is often described as a fish out of water breathing. This is a very clear sign that death is imminent. Most patients are non- responsive at this point. Although they are still physically here, I like to believe that they are taking peeks beyond that veil and finding a place of solace, or being met by someone or something that is welcoming them home• Learning - The Real Basics: Reading, Writing & Dyslexia - Part 6 Based on the Pyramid of Learning by Delina Robair, M.Ed. There is a strong correlation between the Developmental Profile of a child and cognitive functioning in the brain as related to academics, writing, and reading. It must be noted that Dyslexia is primarily a reading disorder and secondarily a writing problem. (Ref. to research on Dyslexia is a complicated language disorder that has its origins in the brain. Dyslexia can be an inherited disorder but with early identification, it can be remediated. It may be combined with other disorders such as apraxia, dispraxi~, agnosia, Gerstmann Syndrome, and subtle signs of Autism. There are many valid tests that can identify any one or a combination of these language based problems• For example, MED in Los Angeles has published a Dyslexia Determination Test (DDT). This test determines the location(s) of disconnection(s) between the auditory, visual, and motor relays of language. What needs to be determined is the exact local of the disconnection in the brain between what was heard, the perception of what was heard, and the writing of what was heard. The remedy is proper instruction in reading. It is very important that a determination of Dyslexia be backed up by valid testing because there are many common misconceptions regarding the cause of and the treatment of Dyslexia• The correct determination can then help the parent and facilitator to make a logical decision about re-mediation. It must be noted that early intervention is the key to success. The first key is a Developmental Motor Assessment before or by the age of seven. The main precursors of Dyslexia are: poor sequencing skills; poor auditory discrimination and memory; poor visual discrimination and memory; poor short term memory. Not surprisingly most Dyslexic children have low self esteem and lack confidence. One must focus on their achievements and encourage their efforts. This can be done if the problems are recognized aran early age. Other common problems to recognize in Dyslexic children are: difficulty in remembering a list of instructions; getting thoughts together to sequence a story; poor organization skills; can answer questions orally but cannot write them down; wants to do math in his head versus writing out the problem; copies inaccurately; looses place while copying; poor handwriting; some reversals of words or writing backwards (mirror writing); and difficulty interpreting symbols. Research finds that Dyslexia is more a symptom of dysfunction during storage and retrieval of linguistic information than it is a consequence of a defect in the visual system and that boys who are impaired in reading outnumber girls by ratios ranging from 4:1 to 10:1. Also noteworthy is that a Dyslexic child or a child diagnosed with Dyslexia, is usually of average to above average in intelligence. Thus Dyslexia is not a 'disease'. Brain scans show that cerebrums are perfectly normal. (Ref. The New Science of Dyslexia, Gorman, Time Magazine, 1-04-12) Today, there are over 3 million students in special education classes specifically because they can't read. Most of them are probably Dyslexic. (Dr. M~ Levine, A Mind at a.Time) Dr. Levine states that, unlike speech, reading must be actively taught. He goes on to say that the spoken word is 50,000 to 100,00 years old. But the written word and therefore the possibility of reading has probably been around for no more than 5,000 years. Thus, our brains are still evolving regions for the purpose of reading. Reading fluency results from good instruction in reading with the ability to recognize words automatically without sounding them out; sounding the words out results in a lack of reading fluency and resulting complaints of reading is too hard. Ideally all children should be screened in Kindergarten to minimize educational delay and preserve self-confidence. How do you know someone has Dyslexia before he or she has learned to read? Certain behaviors like trouble rhyming words are clues. Later you many notice that your child is memorizing books rather than reading them or wants you to read to him/her. If caught soon enough, a child's Dyslexia can be reversed. The evidence looks promising and the vital thirteen developmental motor skills need to be integrated as a first step.
