Dyslexia is one of the most misunderstood learning styles in today's educational landscape. It literally means "difficulty with words," but most people associate dyslexia only with letter reversals and reading problems.

Dyslexia actually stems from a creative thinking style and encompasses a much larger umbrella of learning challenges often labeled as learning disabilities in schools. They 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. They 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 in traditional ways.

The good news is that 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. The Davis methods use the dyslexic's natural gifts and talents to overcome the learning disabilities aspect of dyslexia.

Statistics show that ten to fifteen percent of the total population has symptoms of dyslexia, or this type of thinking/learning style. (The percentage may actually be higher since many people are undiagnosed.)   In fact, some of our culture's most talented people —pioneers in science, technology, physics, sports, 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. He also outlines the techniques 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

These profound ideas, and the revolutionary methods of the Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program have helped thousands of people worldwide to understand their own learning style and finally enjoy success in learning!

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

The Davis® Correction Programs are unique because they address the "root cause" of the learning problem, not just the symptoms. They DO NOT use tedious drill and repetition, which is a waste of time for visual learners (it only frustrates them more.)

"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."

The Davis® methods utilize the client's natural talents and picture thinking abilities. They 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 writing. My pacing, proofreading, and understanding of language and brain processes are much better after Davis Dyslexia Correction."
