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!

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 could hardly read at all before I started the programme. For the first time, I finished a book without getting frustrated or angry. I pinched a book from primary school because I wanted to read it and now over 30 years later I can read it. I am more mellow now and starting to be me again. I’ve found myself! This course works – better than anything else I’ve tried.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jonathan has made huge strides; his grades are a full letter better in each subject.  He doesn’t resist homework, even writing assignments!  His spelling has improved dramatically and he reads for pleasure.  He’s clearly happier and more confident and fun to be around.
