 Programs that work...

The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program is the most widely used Dyslexia Program in the world.  The first Davis Dyslexia Correction Center was established in 1982. This amazing, break-through program and its unprecedented success in correcting dyslexia and other learning problems has lead to its spread into 39 countries around the world. The book The Gift of Dyslexia by Ron Davis has been translated into 29 languages. Why such success around the world?  This is the only program that goes to the root cause of the dyslexia (and other problems like ADD and ADHD) and corrects it from there instead of just treating the symptoms.  This is the only program that deals with dyslexia at a causal level, which is the reason that it is so successful.  The Davis Dyslexia Correction®  program was developed by a dyslexic, not to just explain the nature of the problem, but to discover how to correct it.  This program has seen phenomenal results- not just in the reading and writing levels of children and adults but in the way they perceive the world around them and the way that they feel about themselves. The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program corrects issues with reading, writing, spelling, auditory processing, attention focus, etc...  Davis Math Mastery® provides tools to correct problems learning math. These learning problems are sometimes called dyscalculia and can often accompany dyslexia and ADD symptoms. The Davis approach goes to the root issues that cause some people to have problems understanding and learning math with traditional teaching methods. Visual-spatial thinkers are often confused by the words and symbols which describe math functions. When the foundation concepts for understanding all mathematics are mastered, learning math becomes easy. 

A Different Way of Thinking

Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. Often highly intuitive and highly creative, dyslexics share many different unique gifts.  Walt Disney, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Whoopi Goldburg, Henry Winkler, to name a few,  all share the gift of dyslexia.  Many accomplished dyslexics will tell the world that they succeeded NOT in spite of their dyslexia but because of it.  However, because dyslexics think in pictures, it is sometimes hard  to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words, which lead to many challenges and difficulties in the traditional school setting.  Dyslexics can learn to read, write and study efficiently when they use methods geared to their unique learning style.  The Davis Dyslexia Correction® program uses the gifts inherent in dyslexia in order to correct the problems it presents.  These problems can be corrected.

In 1980, at age 38, Ron Davis (best-selling author and world renown dyslexia expert) overcame his own severe dyslexia when he found a way to quickly eliminate common perceptual distortions. These perceptual distortions had caused challenges with reading, writing, auditory processing, attention focus, to name a few....  For the first time in his life, he could read and enjoy a book without struggling. After independent clinical research and working with experts in many fields, Ron Davis perfected his program for correcting dyslexia in adults and children.

In 1982 the Reading Research Council Dyslexia Correction Center opened in California, achieving a 97% success rate in helping clients overcome their learning problems.  In 1994, the first edition of the book, The Gift of Dyslexia, was published, and a year later DDAI was launched and began formally training others to provide the same program.
