Answers to Common Questions
Here’s where you can find more information about common questions our visitors ask.
More about Davis® Methods
The best way to learn about the Davis approach is to read The Gift of Dyslexia (2010 edition, by Ronald D. Davis). The book provides an in-depth explanation of the theory behind Davis methods, as well as clear explanations of the key techniques used in Davis programs.
You can also find information, articles, and reports about the latest research at the Dyslexia the Gift web site at www.dyslexia.com
Testing for dyslexia
All licensed Davis facilitators offer basic screening services for Davis programs. The Davis screening is inexpensive and will determine whether a Davis program can address the specific problems and difficulties that the client is seeking to remedy. It is not necessary to have a formal diagnosis of dyslexia or any other learning difference in order to work with a Davis Facilitator.
For more information, we offer a free, confidential informal assessment at www.testdyslexia.com
This is a brief questionnaire that will help provide a learning profile, highlighting specific areas that might be addressed with a Davis program.
