Dyslexia: The Davis Method

Instruction and Learning
Dyslexia: The Davis Method

The Davis® theory sees dyslexia as a different way of processing information, not a disability. This course presents a new way of understanding and addressing the challenges of dyslexia and introduces tools and methods necessary to ensure students with dyslexia are well-equipped to succeed in their education. This is a general overview of the Davis® method, not a substitute for the training necessary to be a facilitator. You will be directed to other resources to learn more about these methods and how to become a licensed and certified Davis® Dyslexia Program facilitator or Davis Learning Strategies® teacher.
