This page features a sample of the hundreds of comments received from the many individuals who have completed programs, and from their parents and teachers.
M.D., Puerto Rico - from Prolinguistica
My son is very happy; I’d say that he’s euphoric. He has regained his characteristic energy and congeniality. Today he gave me a hug and thanked me for letting him do the Davis Program. At that moment I realized that all the time, energy, effort and the price have been more than rewarded.
Jonathan, North Carolina, US - from Accurate Perceptions
Jonathan has made huge strides; his grades are a full letter better in each subject. He doesn’t resist homework, even writing assignments! His spelling has improved dramatically and he reads for pleasure. He’s clearly happier and more confident and fun to be around.
AJ - adult, British Columbia, Canada - from Positive Dyslexia
This program is the weirdest thing – this is working! I have undergone changes that mean I can now understand information in the paper world. It’s possible to be less angry, the feeling is like a freedom! Here we are at the end of the week, and something has worked. It feels like hope is planted in the soil. I will be responsible for furthering my paper understanding – that is no small feat!
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.
Child, age 9, Ontario, Canada - from Vantage Point Dyslexia Solutions
Things have gotten 1,000 times easier! I used to look at a book and think ‘that’s a lot of words’, but last night I actually read them.
Male, age 29, Michigan - from New Chapter Learning
I’ve been able to understand things I’ve read. Last night, I went to the art museum and was able to read the wall plaques and comprehend!
Weijia, graduate student, age 33, New Jersey - from New Perspectives in Learning
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.
Pamela, California - from Renaissance Mind
The Davis Method of “detriggering” the disorientation caused by dyslexia is amazing! My daughter’s progress in two short weeks was not only amazing to me, but also to her teacher. Her penmanship, confidence and reading ability was significantly improved after her training away from the classroom.
Parent Report, Canada - from Oakville Success Centre
What an amazing week this was for Maryann! She was always full of excitement after spending the day with you. She was so happy with what she had accomplished. She now has a real sense of being able to be successful with her learning. She is bursting with self-confidence. That speaks volumes. You have given her so much…truly a GIFT!
Parents of 3 children, Minnesota - from New Hope for Dyslexics
We had a seven-year-old girl and ten and fourteen-year-old boys complete the basic program. Our fourteen-year-old did both the reading and eight-day math programs. Now, over six years later, all are above grade level in their basic skills.
Shane (age 15), Sydney, Australia - from Shire Learning Strategies
I can think easily now. I can see accurately and words are coming out at me more easily and reading and writing are easier now. I feel much better about me now — I’m more focused.
M.T., New Mexico, USA - from Rio Grande Learning Solutions
I have seen a big improvement in Olivia’s reading! She is now just about where she needs to be in her reading scores. Olivia’s confidence level has gone from a 2 to a 10! Olivia is most happy because she does not need to leave her regular class to get extra help elsewhere.
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.
Mason's parent, West Virginia - from New Horizons
After our initial program with you, Mason and I worked on making the clay sculptures and his teacher supported his strategies. Mason finished the year making the most growth in reading in the whole second grade. At the end of the school year he was given a trophy for reading achievement which he still displays in his bedroom. We were pleased that Mason tested a year above his grade level in reading. Mason even asked for books as Christmas gifts.
Emily's Mom, Texas - from Sims Learning Center
Emily had an awesome time. She didn’t want to leave. She came home with a new sense of confidence with reading. Our goals were reached beyond what we expected. Emily has her confidence and self-esteem restored. She does not feel like a loser anymore.
