Richard Whitehead, director of the Davis Learning Foundation in the UK, explains: “In diversion from the traditional medical model of seeing dyslexia as a structural or neurological disability, we see it as a different way of thinking.”

“What we very much see in dyslexics are people who learn with and through their imagination.”

Instead of phonics, a creative process is used to make words come to life for people with dyslexia.
