Davis Influence on Other Works
In 1980, Ronald Dell Davis made the groundbreaking discovery that challenged and changed the view of dyslexia worldwide. Through experimentation he learned that he could control his own dyslexia by shifting his mental perspective, and through clinical research with other dyslexic adults he gained insight into the root of their difficulty with words and reading. A year later he opened his first clinic, and in 1994, after working with more than a thousand children and adults, published the first edition of The Gift of Dyslexia.
Davis’ influence on educators and researchers is reflected in a growing body of academic and popular literature incorporating, exploring, or referencing his ideas and the dyslexia correction method developed from them.
