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.

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

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.

Emily's Mom, Texas - from Sims Learning Center

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

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.

Parents of 3 children, Minnesota - from New Hope for Dyslexics

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

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

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, New England, US - from New England Dyslexia Solutions

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.

Dave, 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.

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

The Davis Method of “detriggering” the disorientation caused by dyslexia is amazing! My daughter’s progress in two short weeks was not only amazing to me, but also to her teacher. Her penmanship, confidence and reading ability was significantly improved after her training away from the classroom.

Pamela, California - from Renaissance Mind

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.

Gillian, Australia - from Dyslexia Unlocked

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

My reading is dramatically different. I understand so much more, even from books I’ve already read. From the very beginning of the program, I could see a big difference in my reading and comprehension.

Dan, Illinois, US - from Chicago Dyslexia Center

Before I was introduced to this program, reading had always been a troublesome task. My mind always seemed to be filled with ideas as I read. I understood the words, but just not how to connect them. With the techniques learnt from the program, I was able to concentrate fully as I read. I was amazed by how much joy you can have with a book in front of you.
