The difficulties that dyslexics encounter are the result of a specific cognitive function, image–based conceptualization. Dyslexia is a particular conceptual style producing many advantages that are directly responsible for the high intelligence as well as the special skills and abilities, that characterize adults and children who are dyslexic. This same thinking style is also the source of the difficulties associated with learning to read and write. The discrepancy that exists between ability and achievement in language related skill is correctable!

The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program teaches children and adults how to eliminate the confusion caused by language symbols. It also empowers them with the ability to resolve such problems as poor or delayed reading skills, attention focus and verbal comprehension on their own. An important by-product of this program is the renewal of self esteem, as children learn they are gifted individuals who have special talents.

The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program provides knowledge and experience with self help tools. These tools, when used, will unlock a child’s learning potential, as well as accelerate and enhance the effectiveness of other forms of assistance.

To ensure that the program will be effective and beneficial, potential clients must first be evaluated for certain perceptual abilities. The evaluation also takes into account how aware they are of their learning difficulties and their level of motivation to correct them. Maturity is a factor in these qualifications, so children under the age of seven generally do not qualify for a full correction program. For ages under seven, we have the Young Learners Program geared just for them. The Program Schedule Page has the time frame for the Dyslexia Correction Program. The Young Learners, ADD/ADHD and Math programs may have possible different time schedules. Let the facilitator know if there is any MAJOR behavior or social issues that the client is needing help with BEFORE the evaluation.

Programs Are Tailored to Fit Your Needs

The evaluation is done on a one-to-one basis and is designed to fit the individual needs of a particular client.  Generally, the program includes all or most of the following components:

  • Interviews and assessments to determine (1) the individual’s academic weaknesses and strengths; (2) their specific program goals.
  • Training in self-help techniques for controlling perceptions and turning off disorientations.
  • Mastery of confusing letters, symbols, numbers, and words.
  • Reading and/or math enhancement.
  • Spelling and handwriting improvement strategies.

  • Telling time and time management skills.
  • Study skills and use of reference materials.

  • Speech and hearing skills.
