Davis® Dyslexia Correction
The two major components of a Reading program are Davis Orientation Counseling® and Davis Symbol Mastery®.
On Point Learning programs always includes both of these components.
The Reading Program teaches dyslexic students how to recognize and control the mental state that leads to distorted and confused perceptions of letters, words and numerals.
Through a simple mental technique, the students learn to turn off the thought processes that cause misperceptions. Instead, they are able to restore their minds to a relaxed and focused state, suitable for reading and other studies.
Once Orientation is learned, the student is ready to build the conceptual skills that will allow them to overcome problems stemming from being a Dyslexic learner. The hands on multi- sensory techniques give Dyslexic students the ability to think with symbols and words, so they can learn to read easily and with comprehension. Using clay, students first work with the alphabet, numerals, and punctuation marks, to make sure that they have an accurate perception and understanding of these symbols.
Students then use clay to model sight words –the short abstract words, often encountered in reading, such as and, the, to, or it. These words cause problems when dyslexic individuals cannot form a mental picture to go along with them.
Through Mastery, the student makes a three dimensional clay model of the meaning of each word, together with a model of the letters of the words. With this approach, learning is permanent.
