INFORMATION EMPOWERS and brings us closer to our NEUROINCLUSIVE GOAL: Book a ProD Day presentation or an Information session.

Many so-called ‘learning disabilities’ are the result of an ability.  Dyslexics share a common, natural ability to alter their perception, to think ‘outside the box’, to be able to think multi-dimensionally.

This natural ability can be put to good use as an architect, sportsman, inventor, actor, artist, business man, for daydreaming and creating. However, it can also cause challenges in our current education system, because there is no awareness of this ability. 

Dyslexics’ perceptual talent works well in the 3-dimensional world as it does not change the identity of the objects (e.g., a bird is a bird from any perspective), but it works against them in the 2-dimensional world of symbols such as printed letters.  A ‘d’ seen with our eyes is a ‘d’ , however if seen from a perception of 180 degrees. it becomes a ‘p’. 

A further challenge arises because some people think verbally (with an internal conversation), and some think non-verbally (with an internal film and feelings), and some people use both words and pictures. Dyslexics think largely with pictures, but our current education system is built for the verbal conceptualiser.  The most prominent example of this challenge for a dyslexic is the education system’s preoccupation with phonetic reading instruction.

Finally, 60% of the words we read are comprised of non-picture words, words that do not lend themselves to mental images (e.g., is, and, the, when and concepts).  If there is no image, there is no thinking or processing; dyslexics often make the right sounds (which gives the appearance of reading) but when they get to the bottom of the page they have no recollection of what they read.

All three of these components to the so-called learning disability are corrected in the one-on-one Davis programs.

Educators can learn more about this ability, and the dynamics of the so-called learning challenge by booking one of our Professional Development Day sessions. They normally consists of 1.5 hours of theory and 1 hour of ‘hands-on’ but can be tailor-made to suit your needs and time-frame.  

The Pro D Day sessions can also serve as an introduction to the Davis Learning Strategies for Primary teachers and homeschooling parents.  These strategies enable teachers to provide the multi-dimensional ‘gifted’ thinkers with tools to self-regulate their perceptual talent; ensure the alphabet is confusion-free; teach the children to read by spelling out, rather than phonetically, and enable students to create images for the meaning of any word including the meaningless sight words. Teachers and homeschoolers can learn these strategies in two days, ensuring all the students in their classes have an equal cognitive opportunity.  See our PREVENTION page.


Please help us to reach anyone involved with education, or the consequences of a so-called ‘learning disability’ – students, parents, teachers, adult educators, psychologists, therapists, health practitioners, tutors, University departments, trainee teachers, Correction Centres, Alternate Schools, Homeschooling Organizations, media, etc. because information empowers choice.

Professional Development Day (Part 1)

1.5 hours: provides the theory, the dynamics, and an overview of the methods that can reach the source of the learning challenges, to correct them, rather than treat the symptoms. It also outlines strategies which have been developed to teach basic literacy skills in Kindergarten to Grade 3 classes and thereby prevent the difficulties from arising. It can be accompanied by a PowerPoint if appropriate.

Professional Development Day (Part 2)

1 hour: offers a fun, hands-on experience of giving words 3D meaning! True knowledge is experience, and a fun experience is memorable.

Information Session for your School or Community, as part of a Webinar or Conference

A 1.5 hour interactive talk where we share the cause, the theory, the dynamics behind dyslexia, and over 50 so-called learning disabilities. There will be time for Questions and Answers. This will support you in understanding individuals with ‘the gift of dyslexia’, whether you are an adult with dyslexia, or if you parent/teach children with this ‘gift’. It can be accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation if required.
