Experiences – Reports from Adults
The Davis program was created by a dyslexic adult, based on discoveries made when he managed to correct his own dyslexia at age 38. The program was developed through continued research with adult volunteers. Davis Facilitators have worked successfully with adults of all ages — even some in their 90’s.
Davis works for adults where other programs have failed because it geared to the way that dyslexics think, and provides adults with tools to enhance their own innate mental strengths. Davis programs are provided in a confidential, one-on-one setting, and individually tailored to individual goals.

I can now stop the dizzy feeling in my head. In the past I’ve talked to my doctor about it and could only describe it to her as “feeling off”. This week I’ve learned that it’s being disoriented AND I can correct it! I can already see improvement in my disorganized way of tackling tasks. I am able to approach things in a more systematic manner and actually complete a job!
Nick, age 28, Australia - from Sydney Dyslexia
I am looking forward to reading a book from cover to cover. I’m thinking more when I am writing – I like to be correct and do things in the right way. I am like that at work and now I am like that with writing too. When I wrote my first text yesterday without a single mistake, I felt really happy.

Since doing the Davis Reading Programme my concentration, reading and comprehension have become much better. For the first time in my life I have read a whole book from start to finish, word for word. Not only was I able to remember what I’d read, but I could also understand it. My written communication has also improved, which is an important skill to have in my line of work.
A few years ago, I suffered a series of minor strokes which had affected my balance. But since using techniques I learnt during the Davis Reading Programme my stability is better. Together these improvements have helped my confidence greatly.

Before doing this program, I would get distracted easily and not finish my work. I am relieved to find out I am dyslexic, and glad I have my new tools. I wish I would’ve done this program sooner, so I didn’t have to struggle for so long.
Matthew Head, UK - from Video Testimonial
I completed the Davis Dyslexia Correction program two months ago. I am really surprised and impressed with the results. I’m a lot more comfortable with how text looks on a page. If I read something I’m more likely to remember it the following day. If I read something out loud I read it confidently and with the right inflection.

I could hardly read at all before I started the programme. For the first time, I finished a book without getting frustrated or angry. I pinched a book from primary school because I wanted to read it and now over 30 years later I can read it. I am more mellow now and starting to be me again. I’ve found myself! This course works – better than anything else I’ve tried.
Dan, Illinois, US - from Chicago Dyslexia Center
My reading is dramatically different. I understand so much more, even from books I’ve already read. From the very beginning of the program, I could see a big difference in my reading and comprehension.
Gillian, Australia - from Dyslexia Unlocked
I have quietly struggled with dyslexia for many, many years. Early last year I discovered the Davis Dyslexia Programme.
At the beginning of the course we set clear goals to aim for so I could see my improvement. Throughout the course there were several ah-ha moments when a problem was solved.
Over the years I have done various courses to help me improve my reading speed and spelling but I have found the Davis Dyslexia Programme the most beneficial.
