My centre is in Moggerhanger – a small village in Bedfordshire, approximately 2 miles from the A1 and Sandy Mainline Railway Station.
I am a qualified teacher and hold a Diploma in teaching students with Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia). For many years I worked full time running an SpLD/Dyslexia Base in Hertfordshire. From 2011 until 2017, I worked part-time as a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) in a Primary School alongside my Davis work. I received my Licence as a Davis Dyslexia Facilitator in 2011 after many months of training. Since then I have provided dozens of programmes for clients, and offered advice to many other enquirers. I especially enjoy working with children, particularly those who find Maths, Reading and Spelling a bit of a challenge.
Having spent many years teaching children diagnosed as Dyslexic, avidly reading every new book on the subject and going on a huge number of training courses, it is only since training to be a Davis Dyslexia Facilitator that I have finally found a rational and successful answer to the enigma of Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and ADHD. I have had the privilege of working with many exceptionally talented visual learners who even after years of traditional teaching have still found reading, writing and spelling incredibly difficult. With the emphasis in schools on phonics, phonics and yet more phonics, many children, especially the dyslexic ones, are failing to acquire sight vocabulary and spelling skills.
Ron Davis has provided us with a unique way of tackling the root causes of their difficulties. I would love to see Davis techniques adopted in every school.
