Dyslexia program

Program Structure & Content

The Davis Dyslexia program is designed to fill in the blanks in reading.

Tailored to respond to each client`s individual needs, the program is delivered on a one-to-one basis through an intensive program of 30* hours, normally over five consecutive days in the presence of a support person * * (for some or all of the program as per the Client`s wishes).

The program - whether for children or adults - comprises the following:

  • An initial consultation of 2-3 hours to evaluate the client`s strengths and weaknesses and to establish whether a Davis program could respond to the client`s needs, or not. This assessment is not an equivalent to an educational psychologists report and does not substitute a statement of special educational needs. Instead it allows us to tailor an eventual program exactly to each client`s specific needs.
  • An intensive program of 30 hours * * during which time the Davis tools needed to correct the symptoms of dyslexia are transmitted gradually to the client, enabling him/her to:-
  • Consciously control their perception and attention
  • Master the building blocks of reading (letters, punctuation and words) which are the source of confusion triggering the dyslexic symptoms (disorientation)
  • Provide strategies for improving reading, spelling and hand-writing
  • Master techniques to reduce and eliminate stress, tension and frustration
  • Manage/adjust his/her energy levels appropriate to any situation
  • Improve time management / performance under time-pressure
  • Improve balance/co-ordination
  • Following the program the client is then supported by
  • Two to three follow-up consultations by Skype, or telephone
  • Up to six hours of face-to-face Program Review follow-up sessions either by Skype, FaceTime or face-to-face (as needed) to facilitate and fine-tune the follow up work at home.
  • Clients also receive the Davis® kit for Symbol Mastery at home
  • * Additional time can occasionally be necessary which is planned by appointment in accordance with the clients needs
  • ** The support person remains present throughout all or just some of the program - dependent upon the client`s wishes. The support person`s role is to then provide support and encouragement through the follow-up work at home.
  • *** Program timetables can be adjusted to accommodate school/work commitments but would need to be delivered over a maximum of a two-three week period for continuity, with the first 15 hours in the first week and a minimum of 6-8 hours each week thereafter.

The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program

The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program Key Aspects

The Davis Dyslexia Correction program is suitable for children age 8 and over, and adults of any age.  Licensed Davis providers have successfully worked with with many individuals over age 70.

The program typically includes 30 hours of one-on-one work over a 5-day period. Before starting the program, the Davis provider performs a Perceptual Ability Assessment, an exercise that helps determine whether the student has innate visual conceptualization skills often tied to dyslexia.

The results a client can expect to achieve are:

  • An `off-switch` for disorientation
  • Improved and sustained attention
  • Reduction in undesirable symptoms
  • Improved reading, spelling and hand-writing
  • Improved learning capacities
  • Clear understanding of their individual capacities and gift
