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.

 

 

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.

Nick, age 28, Australia - from Sydney Dyslexia

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

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.

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!

Male, age 29, Michigan - from New Chapter 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.

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.

The best part of the program is how I feel about school now. Before, I couldn’t wait to graduate high school and never set foot in another classroom again. This caused me anxiety because I didn’t know if I’d ever be good at anything. Now, reading isn’t hard anymore and I like learning. I plan to go to college and be whatever I want to be!

Elijah (age 14), Utah, US - from Focus Dyslexia & Learning Solutions

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.

Mason's parent, West Virginia - from New Horizons

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

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.

Madeleine Z, homeschooling parent of 10-year-old, California - from NATHHAN Homeschoolers Association

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.

Peter T, age 65, New Zealand - from Claire Ashmore, Davis Facilitator

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

The Davis training was very relaxed and didn’t feel like work. In the months after the Davis training I practiced a lot of words with my mother. I always benefit from this, because I can learn words quickly, which makes it easier for me to learn for my tests.

Thijs (boy), Netherlands - from Denkwonder (Translated from Dutch)

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!

Pat, 34 years old, mother of two, Ongario, Canada - from Mind over Dyslexia

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.
