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