Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program

The two major components of the Davis® Dyslexia Correction program are Orientation Counseling and Symbol Mastery. Davis Dyslexia Correction always includes both of these components.

Davis Orientation Counseling® teaches dyslexic students how to recognize and control the mental state that leads to distorted and confused perceptions of letters, words and numerals. Through a simple mental technique, the students learn to turn off the thought processes that cause misperceptions. Instead, they are able to restore their minds to a relaxed and focused state, suitable for reading and other studies. Once Orientation is learned, the student is ready to build the conceptual skills that will allow them to overcome problems stemming from dyslexia.

Davis Symbol Mastery® gives dyslexic students the ability to think with symbols and words, so they can learn to read easily and with full comprehension. Using clay, students first work with the alphabet, numerals, and punctuation marks, to make sure that they have an accurate perception and understanding of these symbols. Students then use clay to model the trigger words–the short abstract words, frequently encountered in reading, such as and, the, to, or it. These words cause problems when dyslexic students cannot form a mental picture to go along with them. Through Symbol Mastery, the student makes a three-dimensional clay model of the meaning of each word, together with a model of the letters of the words. With this approach, learning is permanent.

Books on Dyslexia

When Ron Davis’ revolutionary book was first published in 1994, The Gift of
 shone new light on visual-spatial learners and started a shift in perception about dyslexia.

His second book, The Gift of Learning, is now changing perceptions about ADD and ADHD. It also covers solutions for Dyscalculia (math) and Dysgraphia (handwriting).

In her book Fish Don’t Climb Trees, Sue Blyth Hall offers advise if you have just discovered you or your child might be dyslexic.

Happy Student

Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything good about who do the things no one else can imagine.


What you think, you create; what you feel, you attract; what you imagine, you become.


The mind is like a parachute. It works best when it is open.
