Dyslexia is a learning difference. Dyslexic individuals are highly visual, creative, big-picture thinkers with many gifts and talents. They do not need “fixing”. They do not need more phonics. They need to learn how to use their thinking style to help them learn and overcome their challenges.
A Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme is the solution for adults and children over the age of 8 who experience challenges with areas such as: • reading • writing • letter confusions • spelling • listening • comprehension • co-ordination • focus
Davis Tools The programme attends to the root cause of the learning challenges, by giving the person three mental strategies or 'Tools'. These self-management strategies all the individual to create accurate perception, manage stress and regulate energy levels.
Dealing with the difficulties The programme then addresses the learning goals of the individual, which may be related to reading, writing, letter confusions, spelling, listening, comprehension, co-ordination or focus.
A visual, meaning-based, hands-on approach is used. It is called Davis Symbol Mastery™ and uses clay, enabling the individual to use their natural strengths and talents to learn.
Clay is used to:
Work through confusions with alphabet symbols.
Master punctuation symbols.
Master the tricky ‘basic’ words – called Trigger Words. These are the words that have no picture attached to their meaning. The individual creates the meaning out of clay, as well as what the word looks like and sounds like. This allows the dyslexic individual to read, write and use these words without causing confusion.
Davis Reading Exercises The individual is taught three steps to easier reading, using a visual-based reading approach. These reading exercises ensure certainty and full and complete comprehension.

"I would like to personally thank you for what you created and share with you a couple of the unexpected gifts I have left with. For the first time ever in my life I have become excited about reading (I'm nearly 40 years old!). Also, my handwriting has changed so dramatically my wife did not believe it was mine!
Melanie, who took me through the course, was truly awesome and the results I am seeing have left me speechless! Again, I really would like to thank you for giving me a whole new way to express myself." Paul, April 2015
