The Davis Dyslexia Correction® program corrects learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder using the strengths and talents of a picture thinker’s natural learning style. It is FUN for dyslexics. It affirms their intelligence as well as their way of thinking and perceiving. It puts them in control of the learning process and provides them with tools to control their visual and auditory perception. It also modifies hyperactive behaviour and attention problems.
A brief perceptual abilities assessment helps determine if a client is a good candidate for the program. This assessment takes less than an hour.
The program itself is one-on-one and takes one week. It is normally conducted from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., and is paced to suit the individual, with snacks and breaks throughout the day, plus a one-hour lunch break.
Follow-up work at home is required for the client to become a “corrected dyslexic”. Training is provided on the last afternoon of the program week for the individuals who will help the client complete the follow-up work.
