I trained as a Davis® Facilitator after my youngest son had received a Davis programme. He had been struggling at school, particularly with maths, and seemed to be overlooked because he could read and was not ‘bad enough’ in either his academic achievement or behaviour. I researched different ‘options’ until someone told me about the book ‘The Gift of Dyslexia’. It was a revelation to me: it helped me understand how my son thinks and explained why he was experiencing difficulties.
I feel privileged to work with such interesting and diverse thinkers. A Davis programme often opens up their world – interesting feed-back includes a 17 year old catching a tennis ball for the first time in her life and a 9 year old who didn’t need to say pardon any more when he was on the phone to his granddad. A 50 year old client told me, midway through her programme, that the print didn’t move around anymore – she hadn’t told me the print moved because she didn’t know it could be any different – it had always been like that.
I conduct most programmes in my home but have been welcomed into local schools to provide follow-up and continuity for existing clients. I will also give a programme in the client’s home or workplace to accommodate their needs.
