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.

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.
Madeleine Z, homeschooling parent of 10-year-old, California - from NATHHAN Homeschoolers Association
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.
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.
Parent of child with autism and dyslexia, New Zealand - from Positively Dyslexic
I can honestly say, that even after the first session a light had gone on for my son. This was very exciting after years of struggle. Everything made sense to him and he took it all in and back to school, he jumped up FOUR reading levels in a few short weeks, maths has improved tremendously and his private tutors are thrilled with the fast progress.
Mother of 11 year old, New England, US - from New England Dyslexia Solutions
We were so frustrated watching our bright, enthusiastic daughter having so much difficulty with spelling and writing. What a pleasure it is to see her master words and know that she will never have a problem spelling them again. In fact, she spells them better than me–forwards and backwards and forwards again!.
Mother of 11 year old boy, British Columbia - from ReSet
There was a remarkable change. What was most interesting for me to watch was his ability to read information around him – signs, posters, pamphlets etc. He had previously struggled so much with this type of reading. Also, he has read chapter books on his own now. Instead of reading aloud to me, he reads on his own. He stops to tell me about the story and read interesting parts, so it seems like he really is understanding and enjoying.
Penny, SPELD tutor, New Zealand - from Wellington Learning Solutions
The change in this boy is huge. Before medication he was very difficult to manage and while medication worked for a while his personality disappeared. It’s great to see the old Harry back but without the behavioural problems.
