Why the Davis Method is different.
The Davis Method is a visual and meaning based approach. It is much easier than traditional instruction.
It understands and nurtures the diverse ways people learn. It recognizes and values both the internal and external world factors contributing to their learning.
Dyslexics often do experience distortions in perception. These problems are caused by mental disorientation. It is not a problem with eyes or ears. But rather the way that the brain interprets the input from the sensory organs. Dyslexia, Attention Deficit, Dyscalculia (maths) and Dyspraxia (balance) all have the same underlying effect when confused - Disorientation. (Meaning: when the eyes and ears are not seeing and hearing exactly what is in front of them. The persons sense of time can speed up or slow down. And their balance can be inaccurate).
With the Davis method, clients gain more self-awareness when learning. They have the ability to recognise disorientation when it occurs. The clients use their own toolkit to correct their own disorientation. Then they can re-orient themselves so that they can maintain mental focus and accurately perceive print on a page, screen or when following instructions. This creates a new learning behaviour cycle.
