Real Solutions for Learning Disabilities - ADD, ADHD, and Dyslexia in Reading or Math

“I can read now, I know if I don't know how to read a word, I use my tools and then I can read it. I could not read before, now I can and it has been like that since I did my program.  My writing has changed. My teachers used to say that my writing was really bad. Now I know how to use my pencil right." My granddaughter, age 11, 3 years after her Davis Dyslexia Correction® Program.

This is a picture of my granddaughter during her Davis Dyslexia Correction program. She was so excited to learn that "she was not stupid" and to have her unique picture thinking ability recognized for what it was - the gift of dyslexia.

The Davis approach is not based on tutoring or drill, but actually resolves the root causes of problems experienced by individuals with language-based learning difficulties. The Davis program is explained in detail in the book, The Gift of Dyslexia -

Who am I?

I am a graduate nurse of the Halifax Children's Hospital, Nova Scotia and spent 20 years working in Pediatric nursing, with children and families from all walks of life, at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax. I attended Dalhousie University in Halifax, N.S. and earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1993. In 1996, I became the Clinical Leader of Day Surgery at the IWK, a position I held until my early retirement in 2002.

I was fortunate to meet and hear Ron Davis speak at Acadia University in Wolfville, N.S., September 17, 2009. Knowing what the Davis programs did for my granddaughter and her family and being no stranger to learning later in life, I decided right then and there to become a Licensed Davis Facilitator and completed over 400 hours of in depth training and have been licensed since October of 2010.

As is described above, my love of Davis started when my granddaughter did so well after her programs. The Davis programs were life changing for her and her family!  Her self-esteem and self-confidence quickly returned and her Mom finally had the answers she had been searching for that explained my granddaughter's difficulties in reading and math. In fact, her Mom was so impressed she became a facilitator in Oakville, Ontario herself. ( ).

I facilitate Davis programs at my home in Boutilier's Point, overlooking St. Margaret's Bay along the south shore of Nova Scotia, which is about 1/2 hour away from the city of Halifax. I also travel around the Maritime Provinces, providing Davis programs as needed, to help others like my granddaughter.

Now that my daughter, Beth, and I have both become Davis Facilitators, my granddaughter just looks at us with a smile on her face and says "and it's all because of me!"
