This ability to think in pictures and shift the mind’s eye to look at images from various perspectives is a great gift that often brings with it artistic and creative talents, but causes problems when dealing with two-dimensional symbols such as letters, numerals, and punctuation marks. The Dyslexia Correction program begins by teaching dyslexic folks to recognize when they are in this disoriented state, and how to turn off the disorientation, thus making perception accurate. That is when effective learning can begin.
The Davis Dyslexia Correction program includes three specific reading exercises, NOT based on phonics, drill, or repetition (which don’t work well for dyslexic folks) that quickly improve reading fluency and comprehension. After completion of a one-week program with a Davis facilitator, the individual has follow-up work to complete at home. When the follow-up work is done, the individual is a “corrected dyslexic” who can read and write normally.
