Frequently Asked Questions
Davis Dyslexia Correction provides tools to overcome problems with reading, writing, and attention focus. These methods enable adults and children to recognize and control the mental processes that cause distorted perceptions of letters and words. When students are sure that their perceptions are accurate, they can resolve the underlying cause of their learning difficulties. The methods they learn build upon their strong creativity and imagination
Step one is an assessment or screening to determine the ability of the client to perceive multi-dimensionally and tailor the program to the client.
Step two is to help the client to learn how to perceive accurately and correct misperceptions at will. This is done through perceptual and kinesthetic exercises outlined in the book, “The Gift of Dyslexia” Copyright © 1994, 1997 by Ronald D. Davis.
Step three is to help the client to learn and master the basic symbols of reading and writing by de-triggering confusion with the alphabet, punctuation and other written symbols. Abstract words (sight words) are then mastered by creating the concept/definition visually rather than memorizing word defintions.

The Davis program uses the creativity and natural learning style of the client, so that learning is meaningful. It is also fun. When clients start to employ study methods which capitalize on their talents, progress is very rapid.
Most other programs address only the symptoms of dyslexia, and rely on drill and repetition, which dyslexics often find boring and ineffective. The Davis method does not rely on instruction based on phonics because dyslexics are picture thinkers and have difficulty thinking with sounds and words.
