mother and daughter with bookSince 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 reports 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.

 

 

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!

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.

Penny, SPELD tutor, New Zealand - from Wellington Learning 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.

When I think about where Alex is now, compared to where we started, it is truly amazing. Alex is making grades now that I never thought possible for him. It’s not the grades that are important, though. It is the complete change in Alex that is priceless. His reading and writing has not only improved 100%, but also his attitude and confidence. He actually enjoys reading.

Dawna, South Dakota - from Smart Start Dyslexia Correction Center

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.

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.

M.T., New Mexico, USA - from Rio Grande Learning Solutions

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!

Kaliln, age 13, Kansas, USA - from Turning Point Learning Center

I am an IT consultant who works in the software testing aspect of IT; I have built myself a very successful career over about 15 or so years; I have always struggled with reading and writing; although have a great mind for solution and big picture views. I have just completed your amazing course.  For the first time ever in my life I have become excited about reading (I’m nearly 40 years old!) My handwriting has changed so dramatically my wife did not believe it was mine!

Paul, New Zealand - from Optimum Learning

I feel less fearful and more confident. For the first time I felt as if I had conquered the words, that I was in control. My eye ticks almost disappeared. I openly laughed for the first time in a long time and my sleep has improved dramatically. By also doing the Math program, I passed my logic (Math) class – wrote an A on the final, from a D.

Adult, age 34, Hawaii - from Alternative Learning Solutions

The progress our son has made this year is remarkable. He is now able to complete a test within a class period. He has grown more confident as his skills improved. His time spent on homework has been cut in half and he is working independently. He is an honor roll student.

Mother of 16 year old boy, Nebraska - from Thoendel Learning Center

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.

Mother of 9 year old boy, Ontario, Canada - from Tools for Successful Reading

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.

Mother of 11 year old boy, British Columbia - from ReSet

I am embracing the meanings of words into my subconscious. I have improved my reading and am better at reading aloud. I have more confidence in my reading. I can focus easily without working at it.

Male, age 26, Texas - from New Perceptions Learning Center

All the things they say should happen after the program, have happened. It’s made a huge difference in his reading and writing. As a parent I can endorse it 100 percent. I don’t work with dyslexic kids myself, but I’ve never seen anything like this program.

Bob Lee, Headmaster and Parent, British Columbia - from Positive Dyslexia

Before I did the Davis Program- my math marks were always a fail. Afterwards all my marks changed. Now I’m reading a 328 page book. Before I hated reading but now I love it.  I love doing work and I can now read very well.  This changed my life
