Working with Adults

Working with adults is essentially the same as working with 9-18 year old children. The difference is mainly to do with motivation issues for the younger group and emotional issues which are slightly different depending on age.

Stage 1: Basic Training Series 
(Open only to any adult)

Your training varies depending on your goals. If you simply want to be better equipped to deal with dyslexia in your work as a teacher or SENCO, or you are a layperson wanting to be able to help a dyslexic friend or family member, you can decide to do only the first (four day) module of our professional training - the Gift of Dyslexia Workshop.

In order to feel more secure in dealing with literacy (dyslexia) you can take the next two modules, designed to refine your skills in applying the Davis methods to address dyslexia. These two modules, together with the Gift of Dyslexia Workshop are called the Basic Training.

If you want to learn to deal with maths (dyscalculia), handwriting issues (dysgraphia), and/or AD/HD issues, you can attend the four day Advanced Workshop.

Stage 2: Professional Training Series 
(Open only to applicants for Facilitator Licensing)

If you wish to use the Davis name to promote your services, and practice as an independent Davis Facilitator, you will need to complete the full Professional Training, which adds about four weeks of on-site training and further four weeks of home assignments. This is a time commitment of about eight weeks and should be completed within two years of commencing your training.
