sketch of Davis Orientation conceptIn 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.
