Dyslexia is one of the most misunderstood learning styles in today's educational landscape. Although most people associate dyslexia with letter reversals and reading difficulties, Dyslexia encompasses a much larger umbrella of learning difficulties, including, but not limited to:

  • Language-Based Learning Disability
  • Reading Disability
  • Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD/ADHD)
  • Dyspraxia
  • Dyscalculia (Math)
  • Dysgraphia (Handwriting)
  • Phonemic Awareness Disability
  • Visual Processing Disorder
  • Auditory Processing Disorder

How are all of these related? In 1980, Ronald D. Davis realized that, in contrast to the medical community's thoughts on dyslexia being a brain defect, his own severe Dyslexic symptoms seemed to worsen when he was at his artistic best - using his creative, multi-dimensional thinking style.

How could this be?

He wondered...if his symptoms could worsen, then perhaps they could also get better! Soon, he discovered that his inability to effectively read was NOT caused by a defect in his brain, eyes, or inner ears. The root cause for his dyslexia was distorted perception of symbols, or as Ron Davis calls it: Disorientation.

In many cases, by understanding how disorientation affects an individual while dealing with symbols (letters, words, and numerals), the symptoms common in many learning disabilities can be traced back to disorientation.

The Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program is unique because it utilizes the client's natural talents and picture-thinking abilities to enable children and adults to recognize and control the mental processes that cause distorted perceptions with letters 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 LEARNING, rather than struggling!
