We have tried, and it is hard to say if it made a difference.  We didn't continue with the therapist as I didn't really like her.  Now I am searching for another one.  My son has a reading ld and it affects comprehension, what he hears, and he is borderline with attention.  He is also becoming more and more defiant and seems to be more and more stressed.  I am thinking we need to work on some more cranial work for him as well as getting him back on some good supplements.  I also need to work on removing the processed food that has worked it's way back in to our house.  But back to the question at hand, anyone have any success with cranial work with a child with ld?

I certainly think CST has it's benefits for conditions. We've done it and I never noticed a difference with DD1. I didn't do it specially for the LD but one of of other kids had torticollis so we'd go and often DD1 would get worked on as well.

We did it for my son who was in liver failure. It helped with a lot of the symptoms that came with liver failure. I highly recommend it.

We're about to try it for my son who has ADHD that hasn't responded to other interventions.  My daughter had HORRIBLE torticollis as a baby (she's about to turn 4yo) and she has swallowing issues.  I ought to try it for her, too.
