Dyslexia is a misunderstood learning difference. Dyslexia literally means "difficulty with words," and most people only associate it with letter reversals and reading problems; however, this is just one side of dyslexia.  

Dyslexia actually stems from a creative thinking style that has cognitive strengths and advantages, but may also present learning challenges in traditional school settings. It encompasses a large umbrella of learning problems often labeled as "learning disabilities" in schools. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD/ADHD)
  • Language-Based Learning Disability
  • Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Visual Processing Disorder
  • Reading Disability
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Phonemic Awareness Disability
  • Dyscalculia (math)
  • Dyspraxia (coordination/balance)
  • Dysgraphia (handwriting)

Dyslexia produces a number of different symptoms, or characteristics. Not all dyslexics are alike, but in general, they share a similar thinking/learning style.

Dyslexics are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. They are creative, intuitive, imaginative, and excel at hands-on learning and outside-the-box thinking.

It is because dyslexics think primarily in "pictures" and not with the sounds of letters and words that makes it difficult for them to learn (especially, learn to read) with traditional methods.

The key to overcoming dyslexia is to understand this learning difference (the way dyslexics process information), the perceptual talent all dyslexics share, and the connection this has to their difficulties with words. 

Dyslexics CAN LEARN to read, write, study, and learn effectively with methods that focus on the strengths and talents of their visual-spatial learning style. 

Statistics show that 10-15% of the total population have symptoms of dyslexia. (The percentage is actually higher since many people are undiagnosed, or  unaware themselves that they are dyslexic.)  In fact, some of our culture's most successful, talented people —pioneers in science, technology, physics, sports, engineering, medicine, and the Arts are known to be dyslexic.

In his groundbreaking book, The Gift of Dyslexia, ©1994, Ronald D. Davis explains a new perspective of dyslexia focusing on its positive, creative aspects, and the perceptual "talent" all dyslexics share. He also outlines the methods he devised to overcome his own struggles — having lived with the experience of severe dyslexia himself.

"Dyslexia is not the result of brain damage or nerve damage. Nor is it caused by a malformation of the brain, inner ear, or eyeballs. Dyslexia is a product of thought and a special way of reacting to the feeling of confusion." - Ronald D. Davis

New Perspectives in Learning offers Davis® Programs that are Drug-Free Solutions for Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and other related learning challenges.

Focus on the creativity and talents of your learning style to overcome reading, writing, spelling, math, and attention problems!

The Davis® Correction Programs are unique because they address the "root cause" of the learning problem, not just the symptoms.

We do not use tedious drill and repetition. It is a waste of time for dyslexic learners and typically causes more frustration.

Dyslexics thrive with hands-on learning and have the ability to master information visually and kinesthetically, using all their senses (a  multi-sensory approach.)

"We have seen our son's reading comprehension raise two full levels and his decoding is great! This is the only program that has truly helped him, and he enjoyed it! We are so grateful to you and the Davis program."

- Parent of a 15 year-old New Perspectives in Learning client

The Davis® methods utilize the client's perceptual talents and picture thinking abilities. The Davis tools correct both visual and auditory perception issues, as well as improve attention and focus.

Both children and adults benefit from the life-changing strategies that help them to recognize and control the mental processes that cause "disorientation" — distorted perceptions of letters, numbers, symbols, sounds, and words.

Once perception is accurate, the client's literacy confusions (no matter what they are) can be eliminated. By resolving those confusions, the client can begin to focus on success rather than struggling!

"The tools you taught me have helped a great deal with my reading and writing. My pacing, proofreading, and understanding of language and brain processes are much better after Davis Dyslexia Correction!"
