The Davis® methods were devised by a dyslexic to provide a powerful hands-on system of learning. They makes use of dyslexic intelligence as a learning tool. Our one-to-one intensive programs enable children and adults - using their own natural talent - to overcome difficulties with literacy, numeracy, hand-eye coordination, handwriting, attention focus and energy management.
These methods have been used in the USA since the 1980s when Ronald Davis, himself severely dyslexic, began to discover ways to overcome his difficulties and founded the Reading Research Council, which delivered a five-day Davis Dyslexia Program to both adults and children to correct their dyslexic problems.

In 1995 training and delivery of the program was standardized and the Davis Dyslexia Association International was established. Since then, the program has been initiated worldwide with licensed facilitators delivering Davis Programs in Germany, Switzerland, France, Iceland and the Netherlands, as well as in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Dubai, Lebanon, India, Kenya and South Africa. There are licensed Davis Facilitators in 44 countries, licensed by Davis Dyslexia Association International and adhering to the DDAI Standards of Practice. www.dyslexia.com
