Program Details

The Program

This positive, creative-based 30-hour program is DESIGNED for the learning style of the visual-spatial person. While many other programs address only the symptoms of the learning disability, using tedious drill and repetition — the Davis methods get to the root cause of the learning difficulty and correct it using the natural strengths and talents of the client's personal learning style. Clients will learn HOW THEY LEARN and leave with the ability to implement the knowledge obtained during the program into daily life.

Support Training

Anyone who will assist the client meet his/her post-program goals should attend Support Training. Support training is usually held on the afternoon of the last program day.

Covered during this:

  • Koosh® Ball Exercises
  • Davis Reading Exercises
  • Davis Symbol Mastery™
  • Follow-up schedule
  • Post-program recommendations

After the Program

The client will leave the program with all of the tools, understanding, and materials necessary to implement the program into their every day lives and achieve positive results. Davis Symbol Mastery of 219 “trigger words” (those words that do not have a visual image) is an essential part of the correction of Dyslexia.

Overview of the Davis Dyslexia Correction Program

Davis Orientation Counseling™, as outlined in The Gift of Dyslexia by Ronald D. Davis, provides clients with the ability to detect and self-correct distorted perception caused by confusion with letters, words, numerals, and other symbols.

Working with clay allows for confusion to be realized and resolved - in a multi-dimensional, creative way that fits the dyslexic thinking and learning style.

Clients start by resolving confusion with the basic literacy symbols, including letters (above) and punctuation marks.

Clients then work with clay to master words that do not give them a picture. We call these "trigger words" and there are 219 words identified by Davis that need to be mastered. Most of these words will be done at home, after the one-week program.

Clients leave with a kit that includes all necessary supplies to complete the follow-up work at home.

Professional services described as Davis™, Davis Dyslexia Correction®, Davis Symbol Mastery®, Davis Orientation Counseling®, and Davis Math Mastery® may only be provided by persons who are employed by a licensed Davis Specialist, or who are trained and licensed as Davis Facilitators by Davis Dyslexia Association International.
