Experiences – What Davis Clients Say
Since the launching of DDAI in 1995, tens of thousands of children and adults throughout the world have completed Davis programs. Many have reported back on their experiences and many facilitators have included client report on their web sites.
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.
Parents of B.P., age 14, Illinois - from Reading Solution of Central Illinois
We checked with a family we had known who struggled with their son’s dyslexia years back to see if they had ever found anything that worked before deciding if our son should complete the Davis program. Their son had completed three different programs/tutorings, and they felt that the Davis program helped him the most. They indicated that had they attended it first, they likely would not have done any other. We met with the facilitator. Within two days, our teenage son told us he wanted to do the program.

We completed the Davis Symbol Mastery List in six months and the changes in my son were phenomenal. Ted’s reading level jumped more than two years and he is now working at grade level in all areas ( showing great strength in science and math). He can also, for the first time, remain focused for long periods of time.

I can read easier and my accuracy is much better. For me, doing the Davis Program was important because now I can live life like a normal person!
Mother of 9 year old boy, Ontario, Canada - from Tools for Successful Reading
After almost four years of frustration and tears finally there is a solution. Our son is quite confident that he is smart and can figure anything out. He knows how to handle the disorientation and how to put everything back on track. He doesn’t have to be reminded constantly that he can do anything he puts his mind to, he knows.
Pat, 34 years old, mother of two, Ongario, Canada - from Mind over Dyslexia
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!
Peter T, age 65, New Zealand - from Claire Ashmore, Davis Facilitator
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.
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!
Cameron, Age 13, Ontario, Canada - from Mind over Dyslexia
Before I got here I wrote really awful. On the second afternoon I could write amazing! It was as good as my teacher’s writing or better. That day I also started cursive. My cursive writing was never readable – two days later my cursive writing is just as good as my uncle’s and as good as my mom’s
