A.Yes! Because adults are usually more mature and self-aware than children, Davis programs are extremely successful and have applications in many areas of life quite quickly.
Adult clients have included: a physician, a lawyer, business people, computer designers, artists, flight attendants, college students, and people who had not completed high school and went on to get their GED, among others.
Ron Davis discovered how to correct his perception when he was 38. He then worked with other adult dyslexics to develop the other parts of the program that were necessary to correct dyslexia.Q.How is the Davis Program different from other programs for learning disabilities?
A.The Davis program gets to the root cause of many learning disabilities and does not simply address symptoms. Unlike many other programs, it does not just teach compensatory strategies or tricks. Clients learn tools and strategies to correct their learning disabilities. Students learn a focusing tool that actually helps them perceive differently--like getting glasses for the brain. The Davis program is a creative and hands-on method that utilizes dyslexics’ visual-kinesthetic way of learning to help them overcome their challenges.Q.Will people lose their gifts after going through the program?
A.No. The Davis program utilizes and builds on the natural visual-spatial-kinesthetic thinking style and gifts of the dyslexic individual. Most people find that as their challenges are resolved, their gifts have a chance to shine even more. Read about Famous Dyslexics.
