"There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why?
I dream of things that never were, and ask why not."
-- Robert F. Kennedy

          Soon, the student is encouraged to reach into the cage and pet the math

book.  Once the student is feeling comfortable, the math book is taken out of

the cage and placed on the floor in the middle of the room.  Again, the student

sees that the book will not attack her.  The student is now able to approach

the math book and touch it. 


          Next, the student is seated on the couch and the math book is placed on

the student’s lap – still closed, of course!  After a period of time, the student is

able to touch and actually open the math book. 


          The final stage of the therapy is when the student is able to lie on the

floor, wearing nothing but a bathing suit and be covered with several open

math books – pages touching the skin.  I think this was one of the “gross out”

challenges on “Fear Factor.”  (Sigh… I miss that show.)
