Harold N. Levinson, MD


Dr. Harold N. Levinson is a world-renowned psychiatrist and neurologist credited with bringing about a dramatic breakthrough in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia and its related syndromes.

  He began his dyslexia research 35 years ago, and since then he has examined and treated more than 30,000 children and adults.  This has resulted in the development of a unique medical-educational therapeutic approach, validated by recently-published, independent research.  In addition, his new scientific instruments can be used to screen for this disorder before symptoms arise.

  But the greatest testimony to his work is in his patients and parents, and how he has changed their lives.  Many have volunteered to appear with him in any setting to tell their stories.

  Dr. Levinson is currently the Director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities and has established the Levinson Foundation for Learning Disabilities in Great Neck, New York.  He has written eight books, including the just-off-the-press medical text, The Discovery of Cerebellar-Vestibular Syndromes and Therapies, A Solution to the Riddle – Dyslexia.  This reprinting of his 1980 book has been called “decades ahead of its time” and “a new millennium work.”  A popular version, “Feeling Smarter and Smarter”, an updated sequel to his best-selling Smart But Feeling Dumb, is to be published later this year.

  In addition, his many scientific papers dealing with the origins, treatment, and interrelationships of Dyslexia, Learning Disabilities (LD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and Anxiety or Phobic Disorders have appeared in medical and educational journals, and have been reviewed by such popular media as the New York Times, Science, Time, and Smithsonian.  He has also appeared on a number of television programs in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, including The Today Show, Larry King Live, and Donahue,generating huge response.  The BBC is currently producing a documentary of Dr. Levinson’s research.

  Dr. Levinson is a graduate of New York University and the Chicago Medical School.  In addition to his work with the Levinson Center and the Levinson Foundation, he is an Attending Psychiatrist for Long Island Jewish – Hillside Medical Center.  Previously he served as Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry for the NYU Medical Center from 1978-1990, School Psychiatrist for the Bureau of Child Guidance Board of Education for the City of New York from 1964-1981, and Clinical Instructor at Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY from 1964-1978.

  He is a member of several professional medical, scientific and other organizations.
