DYSPRAXIA treament for adults and children
Greater room for improvement ➜ better results
Dramatic improvement in physical co-ordination
We sometimes come across dyspraxia symptoms accompanying other challenges, and then we address them on the fly within the other Davis programmes. By using our simple set of effective tools, you (or your child) can overcome once and for all issues with hand-eye co-ordination, balance, gross and fine motor skills, and spatial awareness. Sorting out handwriting problems (dysgraphia) tends to add about one day to the duration of the Dyslexia programme.
Dyspraxia on its own
It is rare to come across someone struggling with dyspraxia without any of the other learning challenges we deal with (dyslexia, ADHD or dyscalculia), so we in the unlikely event, we will probably only need 2-3 days to sort it out on its own.
The Davis Dypraxia Correction Programme
Davis Focusing Tools
Alignment or Orientation:
This is the simple foundation on which the whole programme builds. By using this simple focusing technique the dyspraxic can immediately start addressing and eliminating their symptoms.
Orientation is very different from concentration, because while concentration takes a lot of effort, orientation is practically effortless.
This is a simple tool for releasing tension in the body and improve physical awareness. This can be very helpful when concentration headache sets in, and is generally an integrated part of focusing.
This is an especially important tool for people who have symptoms of ADHD, but it benefits anyone who wants to have better control and awareness of their energy levels.
We use soft balls called Koosh-balls to improve co-ordination and balance. This results in significantly improved hand-eye co-ordination, spatial awareness, gross and fine motor skills, and timing. We can also explore and enhance physical accuracy by playing a game of soft-tip darts.
If needed, we use simple step-by-step exercises to address handwriting problems.
Mastery Versus Learning
Mastery goes beyond learning. Mastery is for example what you do when you learn to ride a bicycle. When you have mastered the skill of bicycle riding, it will stay with you for the rest of your life. Of course, learning to ride a bicycle is hard without effective focus, but once you have mastered the Davis Focusing tools, this can be done quickly and easily.
