Designed for Individuals Struggling with Academics
The Davis® Dyslexia Correction program is designed to help individuals who struggle with academics. These struggles may manifest in one or more of the following areas:
- Reading (phonemic awareness and decoding)
- reading comprehension
- following directions
- written composition
- poor or limited focus
- short term memory/working memory
- auditory processing
- poor hand-eye coordination
- directionally challenged
- poor balance
During a program, the client is taken through a series of exercises to develop tools which bring about the ability to focus, regulate self-energy and create an overall sense of well-being. This allows the client to control confusion and to maintain clarity of thought. Once there the client learns how to recognize and eliminate the triggers that cause the confusion. Clients are taught specific reading techniques that regulate and improve fluency and comprehension, as well as eye tracking exercises. Auditory processing and balance and movement are also addressed as key components.
Clients are taught how to combine their visualization ability with real-life three-dimensional creations to rectify the confusion between symbol and meaning and how to apply this to any learning or problem-solving difficulty thereby mastering reading, comprehension, and otherwise difficult subject matter.
Clients complete the program with a plan for personal follow-up and necessary accommodations to ensure their new skills become deeply rooted in their lives. Support training is provided for parents, teachers and any other individuals the client within the client support circle. Clients receive a kit containing all materials needed to continue the practice of Davis techniques and continue with clay modeling until they have mastered all the common trigger words.
