Fish Don’t Climb Trees
Author Sue Hall Understands dyslexia from the inside out – as a dyslexic person with vivid recollections of frustrations experienced in elementary school, as a parent who searched for and found a solution to enable a once-struggling child to learn to become a reader, and as a talented Davis® Facilitator with twenty four years of hands-on experience working with children and adults. She has written an insightful and informative book that strikes a perfect balance among autobiographical tidbits, illustrative stories, and direct practical advice and suggestions for recognizing and overcoming problems at school and in life.
The Gift of Dyslexia
Like other dyslexics, Ronald D. Davis was gifted with an unusual talent for creativity and imagination…yet, he grew up wondering why he couldn’t function right in school, where teachers labeled him ‘retarded’. After numerous failures and setbacks, he eventually became an engineer, a business man and a sculptor – and at the age of 38, made a startling discovery that enabled him to read a book, cover to cover, in just a few hours.
This inspiration led to Davis’ revolutionary procedures, outlined clearly and simply in this book so that anyone – teacher, parent, therapist, or dyslexic – can use them successfully to overcome the difficulties of dyslexia.
In this groundbreaking work, The Gift of Dyslexia, Ronald D. Davis shares his own experiences of living with dyslexia – and overcoming these difficulties through methods that he himself devised, based on his ability to think in pictures instead of words. These revolutionary techniques are taught internationally to professionals who have already helped thousands overcome similar problems. By Ronald D Davis
The Gift of Learning
Now, in The Gift of Learning, Davis applies his proven techniques to the four most common learning disabilities beyond dyslexia:
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
- ADHD (the hyperactive variety)
- Math deficiency (dyscalculia and acalculia)
- Handwriting problems (dysgraphia and agraphia)
With his “unique perspective on the subject of learning disabilities” (Library Journal), Davis shows how, through a series of mental and physical exercises called “Orientation Counseling” and learning tools called “Symbol Mastery,” those suffering from these conditions can now learn how to correct them, embrace their gift – and enjoy learning.
