We can help people with dyslexia improve skills at school, at college and at work. Davis methods show you how to use your own natural thinking style to overcome problems with reading, writing, memory and organisation.
Davis facilitators will recognise your preferred learning style. Then, using the Davis methods, we show you how to understand maths activities through hands-on experiences rather than by repetition or learning by heart.
People with AD(H)D are frequently naturally inquisitive, they are good multi-taskers, therefore can be quick-witted and visionary. Moreover they are good lateral thinkers and, more often than not, courageous when it comes to taking risks.
The Davis Autism Approach allows an autistic person to participate more fully in life: inviting them into the world, where the structured activities fill in the missing pieces of development, thus making clear those life experiences not understood before.
Dyspraxia, often referred to as clumsiness or lack of co-ordination, can cause poor time management, handwriting and sense of direction and, thus leading to taking a long time to complete tasks. A Davis Programme will help.
A Davis Facilitator can identify the root causes of your handwriting problems. We can then take the time to help you understand how to overcome your difficulties in order to enable you to write clearly and quickly. Putting you in control.
