What is Dyslexia?
A rough estimate is that up to 1 in every 15 people in the UK has some degree of dyslexia. Sometimes their dyslexia is so mild that the person may simply need a little help with their reading and organisational skills. Others have a dyslexic perception that is so strong and so creative that they find it difficult to function in an everyday way. They may have more severe difficulty with academic work, a hard time with organising their everyday lives - such as packing for a holiday, problems with controlling their emotions and behaviours, or even finding it difficult to socialise with others.
Generally, we might say that 80% of people with poor reading skills are likely to have the dyslexic talent. Nearly the same percentage of males and females have dyslexia.
What are the Davis Methods?
Ronald Davis has written a book about this process which is called The Gift of Dyslexia. It can be found on a number of websites.
Another route to discovering how the Davis ® strategies work is to go to this website - www.unlocking-learning.co.uk. Here, you will learn more about the Davis ® Method and you will be able to find a Davis ® facilitator to talk to. If you have questions, or just want to discuss your particular concerns, then you can contact your nearest facilitator for a chat which may, or may not, lead to a Davis ® programme.
