Ron Davis

“…At dyslexia’s root is a natural ability, a talent. The gift of dyslexia is the gift of mastery.”

– Ronald D. Davis

These famous people are gifted with visual/spatial/picture thinking. This means that once anything is ‘learned’ it has become a permanent, integrated part of that person’s thinking – no repetition is needed – THIS IS MASTERY! You have mastered walking, riding a bike, typing, and many experiences where you don’t need to engage deliberate thinking. What happens in a Davis program is mastered.
