What is ‘Gifts For Dyslexia’?
Gifts for Dyslexia (G4D) is a Bursary Fund. It provides assistance to people in financial need who would benefit from the Davis® Programme. G4D considers applications from people with dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, attention deficit and other learning difficulties.
The Davis Methods
Ronald Davis, an autistic and dyslexic himself, came up with a clever and successful strategy for solving dyslexic difficulties. By using the dyslexic talents of heightened perception and imaginative thinking, dyslexics are empowered to correct these difficulties. Davis®Programmes provide practical skills that remove obstacles to learning and everyday functioning by focusing on the distinctive dyslexic learning style. A style shared by all dyslexic individuals. Thus, the Davis®student can achieve the fullest expression of their innate gifts; moving to success in every aspect of their lives.
This programme is particularly helpful to ‘non-responders’ to phonics!
More information can be found in Ronald Davis’ book The Gift of Dyslexia.
Read some of some testimonials on this website to hear how the Davis Method® has helped to unlock dyslexics’ inner potential.
Our aim is to make the Davis® Programme available to as many people as possible. Some need financial support.
If you are the parent of a child who experienced a successful program or you are a client yourself and would like to give something back to the organisation, then you could make a contribution to our Bursary Fund. Every little bit helps, however large or small.
Your generous donation will go to support individuals to enable them to take a Davis® Programme.
