We at Gifted Dyslexic aim to help children and adults to reach their true potential and we are fully aware that the success of the Davis methods may sound too good to be true.
For peace of mind and to find out what other parents have experienced, you may want to join the international Facebook group for the various Davis programmes. Thousands of parents have joined the group; some hoping to get more information before signing up to a programme, some to get support while working from one of the books at home, and some are parents who have decided to become licensed Davis facilitators after experiencing the instant success of the programme.
We are proud of the consistently high success rate we achieve by using the Davis methods, and below are a few comments from satisfied clients, their loved ones or educators.
From 14% marks to 90% in only 5 days
At the age of 10, Sam did not know why he was struggling at school, despite having had all kinds of interventions. The 5-day Davis programme showed him why he struggled, and how to succeed without much effort.
From the mother of nine year old dyslexic Kris:
"Hi Axel, I trust that you and family are keeping well... would like to report back that Kristiana has made an incredible improvement in her academics... She received a diploma for Improvement in All Learning Areas... and has passed all her subjects... and School is no longer daunting... Thank you from Kris and I for making her learning easy... Have a blessed Christmas and an awesome New Year... — feeling accomplished."
James learns to read in 3 days
At the age of 10, James was completely illiterate when he attended a Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme with Gifted Dyslexic. He knew about 3 letters, recognised about 3 words, and he could not write his own name. On day three he started reading, but given his further challenges with autism, his programme ended up taking 10 days.
Ella learns to read in five days
Ella was pretty much illiterate when she attended a 5-day Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme with Gifted Dyslexic. On day five, she was reading beautifully as you can see.
Sabre learns maths in five days
When Sabre started her Davis programme, she struggled with adding 2+2, but on her fifth day she was doing long division.
She also learnt to ride a bike in 30 seconds.
FIVE YEAR improvement in ONE DAY!
18 year old Jadon was facing failure at Matric (A-level equivalent)
We tested Jadon's reading level before starting, and again after his first day. He went from being 7 years behind his chronological age, to being only 2 years behind in a single day.
Dyslexic and ADHD student achieves nine A*
Amazing reading improvement in five days
The Davis programme unlocks true potential
We often find that parents spot the problems before school, simply because parents are more aware of the true potential of their child, and of course it is difficult for a teacher with up to thirty children in a class to spot and realise the true potential of all their students. In fact, most schools consider their responsibility fulfilled if your child does not fail at exams.
Sometimes before seeing us, a bright child is achieving average marks in school, and that is being considered fine by school. It is generally not considered a school's responsibility to help students reach their true potential. They may simply be considered an average student - and that may be fine by school.
Expert Reviews for the Davis Programmes
Ron Davis is a profound thinker
"Ron Davis is a revolutionary and profound thinker and has discovered what history will record as one of the great insights in the fields of learning and how the mind works."Thom Hartmann, author of Beyond ADD: Hunting for Reasons in the Past and Present, and many other top selling books.
Excellent foundation in learning theory
"These [Davis] procedures have an excellent foundation in learning theory. They use each of the senses for learning and provide for concept integration."Joan Smith, Ed.D., author of You Don't Have to be Dyslexic
Davis helps us reframe learning abilities
"After hearing so much about what kids labeled 'dyslexic' can't do, it's refreshing to learn from Ron Davis about the gift of dyslexia. Davis helps us reframe the learning abilities of kids who have trouble reading, yet who possess superior visual-spatial understanding, and he provides important clues as to how they can be reached."Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D., author of The Myth of the A.D.D. Child and In Their Own Way
Particularly pleased with the results of the Davis program
“We have been particularly pleased with the results of Ron Davis’ program. One visual-spatial learner gained 4 grade levels in one week, and retained the gain.”
