Will my dyslexia get cured?

Dyslexia is neither a disability nor an illness to be cured. It is a different thinking/learning style, a natural ability, a talent. Which enables you to think multidimensionally and alter your perception. This particular ability also causes hindrance in learning.

You will never stop being dyslexic and, when you think about all the advantages your thinking style gives you, why would you want to? All you need is control over this ability to use it will; A ‘switch’ to turn it off and on at will!

A Davis Program will provide you this switch for your gift so that you can correct those aspects of being dyslexic that cause you problems; it will never take your dyslexia away from you and would not want to.

How do I know that program will work for me?

Correction programs are provided one on one and are customize to the need of the individual as each student has different thinking abilities and learning style.

To find out whether Davis Methods ® could help you, call for an initial consultation and thereafter an appointment for the first meeting will be set up, a formal assessment will be done by the certified Davis facilitator to find out the student’s–

  • Learning style and perpetual ability
  • Strengths and areas of improvement
  • Whether Davis program will be useful.
  • Motivation and willingness to work on areas identified

Will program be successful?

Davis Programs are known to have success rate of 97% (source - www.dyslexia.com/program.htm). However, following are essentail factors to achieve this success -

  • It is very important that the client is motivated and willing to make the changes and continue with the follow up work post program.
  • It is also important that a parent or support person will ensure support for the follow up work after the program, without violating the control and responsibility of the student.
  • It is also important that any medications that the client may be taking are fully disclosed as some medications will affect the natural orientation of the brain.

I find my little kid who is otherwise smart but struggling in getting alphabets/ numbers right, should I wait and watch him suffer till he/ she turns seven?

No, kid need not suffer. For age 5 – 7, Davis Reading program for young learner’s is provided. It is not a dyslexia correction program, but it aims to provide the essential learning foundation to a young one. This program is essentially parent-participation program.

Is the dyslexia fixed at the end of the week?

No. The client will notice changes about themselves during the week. At the end of a week the client will understand how to use the tools and techniques to correct their dyslexia and continue the positive change. The length of time taken to complete the follow up work is up to the individual student.

To do this program my ward will have to miss school for 5 days, school does not allow leave, so what can be done?

If your child has been having difficulties in the classroom and their confidence is taking a battering, a week off school is not going to make any difference. The changes to the self-esteem and abilities at the end of the week will more than make up for a week missed at school. Usually schools are very supportive of a child who is struggling and allow the child to take the week off.

I shall be happy to answer any queries that the school may have about the Davis program – both before and after.

What benefit will I get from a facilitator?

A facilitator receives a minimum of 400 hours training over 11 modules and participates in Continual Professional Development activities. Apart from gaining technical expertise, a facilitator is trained to a high level in:

  • interpersonal sensitivity
  • building rapport
  • keen observation (especially of signs of disorientation, confusion and concentration)
  • tenacity
  • agility in adapting the textbook methods while adhering to Davis core principles when clients behave unpredictably
  • the art of motivation and the mechanics of responsibility

Facilitators also have a strong theoretical grounding in why we do what we do, which equips us uniquely to be able to track an individual trigger back to its source.

We understand that a Davis program with a licensed facilitator is quite an investment, it provides in return a sound basis not just for reading, and not just for school, but for the whole of a person's future life.
