What is Dyslexia?
Most of the time, people who hear the word dyslexia think only of reading, writing and perhaps spelling difficulties. Some associate it with word and letter reversals, others with slow learning. Almost everyone considers it some form of a learning difficulty; however, a dyslexic person might also have difficulties with focusing and attention skills, or general organisation, time, memory, handwriting, maths or physical coordination.
The Gift of Dyslexia
Ron Davis believes that dyslexia does not originate from deficits or damage but is a result of an inherent mental gift or talent. Dyslexic people think in pictures rather than words, they are imaginative and creative, and they try to solve problems by looking at the whole picture rather than working step-by-step.
The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program relies on using the mental talents that dyslexic people share to overcome the learning problems. It provides tools to overcome problems with reading, attention focus and often also with writing difficulties.
The dyslexic student is made aware of possessing this talent, learns to understand its mechanics and then learns how to master it. This will transform the talent into a controllable ability and progress is rapid!
The Davis procedures give a dyslexic student that control in about 30 hours of intensive one-to-one guidance and instruction.
