I have experience of supporting persons with Dyslexia both as a Lecturer in Early Years and Childhood Studies and as a parent of two dyslexic boys. My dyslexic sons were being supported the phonic route, but this wasn’t working for them. However, coming across the book ‘Gift of Dyslexia’ changed everything, including my belief that what teachers were seeing as a difficulty wasn’t so; rather that my children had ‘GIFTS’ they could develop to fulfil their dreamed potential Now some 25 years later the Davis methods have, for my sons, produced two articulate, graduate professionals who hold their own and give back to society in amazing ways. During becoming a Davis Facilitator my students have shared these gentle, respectful methods have enhanced their confidence, self-esteem, and most of all have begun, quite quickly to experience successes; not only in their academic abilities but have transferred the skills to enrich other areas of their lives.
