Davis Methods

Staff image

Davis methods are indigenous, these are designed on the core premise that learning is essentially a creative process and mastery can be gained by experiencing the subject through a creative process. These methods are pioneered by the genius Ronald D Davis out of his own experiences; he himself was once a non-verbal autistic child, became a successful millionaire at a very young age. When he realised he can control his symptoms of dyslexia...his life took another turn; He founded Reading Research Council in California, USA and developed these methods with the help of other eminent people.

Why Davis Programs are drug free?

Davis methods employ self-regulating technique which enables the individual to control disorientation, correct the perception and maintain focus, regulate the energy levels along with other benefits. By use of these various tools in combination with the knowledge gained during the program, the individual can control the symptoms of dyslexia, can maintain focus and attention. This enables the person to study, work and carry out day to day activities without use of ADHD drugs.

If a student is taking any psycho-active drugs, stimulants, and serotonin reuptake inhibitors, these drugs seem to stand in the way of a successful implementation of these techniques. Hence, whden the student takes the program, he/ she must be completely off the drugs, based on your doctor’s advice.
