About David

Here is a little information about myself. I have been a Davis Dyslexia Correction® facilitator since 2003.  I spent 2 years in training with Davis Dyslexia Association International® (DDAI) and have  worked with hundreds of clients.  I graduated with a BS in Physical Education and Health Science from Loma Linda University.  Education has always been my passion and I have a California Teaching Credential.  I have been married for 26 years and have two girls ages 23 and 20.

I grew up with dyslexia and had a very hard time in school.  I was put on the path to find some program that would help my oldest daughter when I saw that she too was dyslexic.  My wife and I went down many different roads and spent lots of money on tutors etc.  I was so thankful to have found the Davis Method.  My wife thought it was best if I went through the program before our daughter did since we had raised her hopes up many times.  We didn’t want to put our daughter through something that would be like all the rest we had tried just to be disappointed again.  I was amazed at the results for myself being an adult; I thought it would be very successful for my child.  The results for our daughter were dramatic.  I can’t tell you what a relief it was to have her so improved.  The program enabled her to eliminate the confusion dyslexics often experience with reading, spelling, and math bringing her to grade level in a short amount of time.

I realized the learning strategies developed by the DDAI could dramatically improve the academic success of a dyslexic child, and excited by our daughter’s improvement, I just had to become a Davis Dyslexia Correction®Program Facilitator!
