Dawna, South Dakota - from Smart Start Dyslexia Correction Center
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.
Christine M. B, Mother of 14 year old, Florida - from Paradise Learning Unlimited Services
This program has been fabulous and my daughter has an interest in reading she has never shown before. She reads with growing confidence and she reads words that were once difficult with ease. She reads with conviction. My daughter came home the other night from school and actually read a whole Social Studies chapter out loud, not once did she ask me to finish reading which is her normal habit.
Jessica, Year 10 Student, Australia - from Melody Hong Kong
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.
Dave, New Zealand - from Wellington Learning 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.
Parent, Georgia, US - from Reading Quest
We did the program and what a difference. Lexi is a different child. Lexi not only is reading at her grade level, but she understands what she is reading. If she doesn’t understand something she knows what questions to ask.
Parents of 3 children, Minnesota - from New Hope for Dyslexics
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.
M.D., Puerto Rico - from Prolinguistica
My son is very happy; I’d say that he’s euphoric. He has regained his characteristic energy and congeniality. Today he gave me a hug and thanked me for letting him do the Davis Program. At that moment I realized that all the time, energy, effort and the price have been more than rewarded.
Paul, New Zealand - from Optimum Learning
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!
Pamela, California - from Renaissance Mind
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.
Male, age 26, Texas - from New Perceptions Learning Center
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.
Dawn and James, Parents, Idaho, US - from Center Point Learning Solutions
Our daughter’s confidence has grown tremendously and her ability to share with us what she needs to be a successful learner is wonderful. As we head into parent teacher conferences we are no longer filled with dread and fear. After her first evaluation with the reading specialist this year, she is reading at grade level! She is excited to continue to work on her trigger word list after feeling successful for the first time in years.
Thijs (boy), Netherlands - from Denkwonder (Translated from Dutch)
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.
Matthew Head, UK - from Video Testimonial
I completed the Davis Dyslexia Correction program two months ago. I am really surprised and impressed with the results. I’m a lot more comfortable with how text looks on a page. If I read something I’m more likely to remember it the following day. If I read something out loud I read it confidently and with the right inflection.
Madeleine Z, homeschooling parent of 10-year-old, California - from NATHHAN Homeschoolers Association
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.
Adult, age 34, Hawaii - from Alternative Learning Solutions
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.
