Help for 8-18 year olds

Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme

Above you can see a TV interview with Axel Gudmundsson, director of Gifted Dyslexic an Davis Dyslexia Association Africa, where he explains what happens in a Davis Dyslexia Correction programme.

Once a learning problem has fully manifested (normally around the age of nine) the child has developed various strategies to live with the problem. This means that a full five day (30 hour) one-to-one intervention is needed in order to successfully address the literacy problems, and further 15-20 hours if maths problems and/or ADD problems need to be addressed.
When working with a child, it is imperative that they are motivated to address the problem, and our initial assessment is designed to find this out as well as helping us to tailor-make a programme catering for their individual needs.

We have achieved over 90% success rate, which means that most of the people we work with show the kind of improvement displayed in the graph above. The few ones that are not successful are generally those who do 
not use the Davis tools after the five-day programme and do not do the follow-up work at home. This shows us that as long as you use the Davis tools, you will succeed.

For this age we offer several slightly different programmes addressing the various symptoms:

Various options for you

There are a number of options available to you, depending on the level of involvement you are prepared to take on, and what you can afford.
We like to think that the Davis programme is actually available to practically anyone, as you are not really restricted by finances. All you need is the book, some plasticine, time and patience. Alternatively, you can sign up for a workshop to give you more confidence in applying the procedures in the book, or book in a professional one-to-one intervention.

Handwriting correction might take an additional day or so.
