Davis® Dyslexia Correction ProgrammeThis programme rapidly improves progress in reading, writing and spelling by addressing difficulties caused by problems with accurate perception. It is for anyone, aged 8 and over, who experiences difficulty with reading, writing and other academic skills. It is also recommended for learners with dyspraxia.
The principle components of the programme are:
- Davis Orientation Counselling for relaxed focus and accurate perception.
- Davis Symbol Mastery – creative exercises that eliminate the confusion caused by written symbols and words by modelling them in clay.
- Davis Reading Exercises rapidly improve fluency in reading and remove the need for excessive effort and concentration; especially effective for readers who do not respond to phonic methods.
- Balance and catching exercises reinforce visual and spatial perception and coordination.
A detailed explanation of the Davis Theory of dyslexic thinking and development as well as step-by-step instructions for the Basic Davis Methods can be found in the book The Gift of Dyslexia.
