‘My child is not stupid but is always underachieving’.
If this is the case, then the Davis® Method can help!
Take 30 seconds to consider the questions below. It could unlock the vital answers to any worries you might have about your child’s progress on their learning journey.
Is your child….
- Not getting to grips with spelling
- Unable to understand how sounds relate to letters
- Losing their place when reading
- Complaining that words are blurred or distorted
- Still reversing letters even though classmates are getting them right
- Mixing up words like ‘was’ and ‘saw’ or ‘on’ and ‘no’
- Writing words with the correct letters in the wrong order
- Finding it hard to learn sequences like the days of the week
- Disorganised personally and with belongings
- Struggling to follow instructions
- Unable to make sense of time or direction
- Making lots of errors when copying things down
- Struggling to stay motivated
Did you answer ‘yes’ to more than four of these questions? If so, there may be a possibility that your child is dyslexic.
What to expect:
A short assessment will establish the strengths of your child and any areas that might need addressing. (usually 2 hours with the parents present)
The student will then have one-to-one sessions with a fully qualified and licensed facilitator. In most cases, the program lasts for about 30 hours and is usually given on either 5 consecutive days or over 2 week-ends.
By the end of the week the child will have learned to use the Davis tools. They know what is meant by ‘You ought to concentrate.’ They will have learned how to stay focused and how to read with fluency with sound comprehension. He/she might appear calmer, more in control and more confident.
There will be some follow-up work necessary once the program is finished. For this to happen, a parent or carer will be shown how the child can be supported in order for the newly acquired skills to be mastered and embedded in the child’s way of learning.
At all times, the facilitator can be asked for help and support if and when problems arise!
