Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program

The Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program is not based on tutoring or drill, but actually resolves the root causes of problems experienced by individuals with language-based learning difficulties.  Turning Point Learning Center provides five consecutive days of individualized counseling from licensed facilitator, Kristi Brown, M.Ed. The Program is typically Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. A lunch break is taken for one hour from 12:00 p.m. to 1 p.m. The Program benefits ages 8 through adult.


With Davis® Orientation Counseling, a client will learn how to correct perception and perceive accurately at will. By learning the Davis tools, individuals will gain the knowledge and skill necessary to access their own learning potential. When used, these tools can open the doors for a lifetime of learning and success.

 

Davis® Symbol Mastery techniques match the non-verbal or picture thinking learning style.  This visual/spatial approach allows clients to learn the basic symbols of reading and writing by creating the alphabet and other symbols as clay models. Non-picture words, such as "a", "an", and "the" are mastered by creating the concept of each meaning in clay along with the word.

 

Davis Reading Exercises help build skills for visual word recognition which improves reading fluency. Beginning readers often rely exclusively on phonetic decoding strategies for all words, a process usually centered in the mid-temporal lobe of the left hemisphere, where letter sounds are connected to words. This is a workable means of decoding words, but it is slow ­ and it is particularly difficult for most dyslexics.
