Davis Programmes for learning differences
Main Contact: Elizabeth Shepherd
The Davis® Dyslexia approach is the most successful method worldwide with over 400 licensed Facilitators which has helped thousands of people of all ages.
The Davis Approach is an exciting and positive way forward for people with learning differences. A one-to-one programme of around 30 hours enables effective learning customised to the individual’s needs.
Dyslexics are highly aware of the environment, are more curious than average and think mainly in pictures instead of words. They are highly intuitive and insightful and think multi-dimensionally (using all the senses). They have vivid imaginations and can experience thought as reality too.
Dyslexic students have a hard time remembering things that they do not fully understand. Repetition and drill are a waste of time and increases frustration because they will not retain information unless they understand where it fits into the “big picture”.
Dyslexia: We can help people with dyslexia improve skills at school, at college and at work. Davis methods show you how to use your own natural thinking style to overcome problems with reading, writing, memory and organisation.
Dyscalculia (Maths dyslexia): Davis facilitators will recognise your preferred learning style. Then, using the Davis methods, we show you how to understand maths activities through hands-on experiences rather than by repetition or learning by heart.
AD(H)D: People with AD(H)D are frequently naturally inquisitive, they are good multi-taskers, therefore can be quick-witted and visionary. Moreover they are good lateral thinkers and, more often than not, courageous when it comes to taking risks.
Dyspraxia: Dyspraxia, often referred to as clumsiness or lack of co-ordination, can cause poor time management, handwriting and sense of direction and, thus leading to taking a long time to complete tasks. A Davis Programme will help.
The Davis® programme uses a person’s natural learning ability in a new way. Harness your creativity with this drug free, no drill, hands-on, multi-sensory approach, Simple techniques to control energy levels and experience how it feels to be able to focus and stay on task. An approach that puts the student (child or adult) in control of their dyslexia and shows then how to master whatever they want to learn.
Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about the methods and how I could help you.
