Davis Dyslexia Correction Program
The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program is a positive, creative based program. The program includes 30 hours of one-on-one facilitation over the course of one week. The program is designed for clients to overcome their struggles with the symptoms of Dyslexia. The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program is suitable for children aged 8 and older and for adults of any age.
At New View Learning, we implement Davis Methods to get to the root cause of our clients learning difficulties and correct them using their natural strengths. Clients will leave the program with the ability to apply their new knowledge they obtained during the program to their everyday lives.
Davis Orientation Counseling: Provides clients with the ability to identify and self-correct distorted perceptions caused by confusion with letters, words, numerals and symbols. Clients will learn to turn off the thought process that causes disorientation.
Davis Symbol Mastery: Clients will start to resolve confusion with the Alphabet and basic literacy symbols.
Clay: Disorientation occurs in reaction to confusion. Working with clay allows for confusion to be realized and resolved in a multi-dimensional, creative way that fits the dyslexic thinking and learning style.
Davis Word Mastery: Clients use a dictionary and clay to create 3-D models for abstract trigger words. Once these words are Mastered they will no longer cause confusion or disorientation.
Koosh Ball Exercises: The Koosh Ball exercise supports and improves balance and coordination.
Reading Exercises: Three effective reading exercises improve word recognition, reading fluency and comprehension.
