Here's what some of our clients have had to say about Discovering Dyslexia™ and the Davis® Program...


The Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program is phenomenal and changed my son's life forever. Cameron started his Davis program a little over four years ago when he was 9½. Cameron was having difficulties in school, but the problems were very obscure and difficult to put your finger on. As is true with many dyslexic children, Cameron's difficulties were not of the level that the school felt required intervention, but were serious enough to make school very difficult and frustrating for Cameron.

Without going into the specific details, Cameron was "on" sometimes and then "off" at others. He was a very "high maintenance" student in the classroom and required extra assistance constantly. Homework was a nightmare. Fortunately for us, Cameron had "b" "d" reversals that were no longer considered age appropriate. With our limited knowledge of dyslexia at that time, those reversals were what led us to the Davis Correction Program in the first place. I will never forget reading the 37 Common Characteristics of Dyslexia on the Davis website. Cameron possessed over 30 of them (and that was with the school still believing Cameron was not "bad enough" for help)!

Once Cameron began his program with Janet, I noticed immediate changes. For the first time Cameron could sit still and pay attention. He was beginning to process information and learn. I felt as though I could actually see his brain working. I would just jump for joy every time he connected the pieces.

For the next year, we worked on completing the trigger words, reading exercises, played Koosh ball like crazy and worked on math issues. By the end of that year, Cameron had made tremendous progress. The truly amazing thing was that, although we stopped the daily efforts, the progress continued. He continued to improve and learn and overcome. Now, four years later, Cameron functions completely on his own in school, does all of his own homework, studies for his own tests and actually made the honor roll. What a proud moment that was.

The Davis Program was the best investment of time and money imaginable. It made all things possible to Cameron!

Hello,

My name is Ian Giacopuzzi and, at age 8, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and started the Davis program under the tutoring of Janet Confer. This program has made me an advanced reader and confident writer. I am now a sophomore at Lake Arrowhead Christian School, having finished my freshman year with a 4.0 and in contention for valedictorian. I would strongly endorse this program to anyone with dyslexia!


We love Janet and the Davis Program!

Daniel, age 8, met Janet within weeks of being assessed in second grade and was sad and confused. Daniel was not understanding why, although knowing he was smart, he was unable to do well with reading and writing. The week with Janet changed everything! He was taught how he could use his [Davis] tools to make the learning process easier for him. He increased to grade level within a few months! Thank you, Janet, for everything!

Dear Janet,

I am happy and fortunate to have met you. You are wonderful and kind. Niklas is now in 4th grade. So far this year he is enjoying school and is making mostly A's and B's!! He is enthusiastically doing extra reading and enjoys his success in school. As you know, this is a welcome change from his past 2 years of school. Thank you for Niklas' increased self-confidence!!

Dear Janet,

I would like to thank you for working with Christine. I can see the difference it has made in her. Last Tuesday, we worked on 5 vocabulary words using clay (emancipate, inalienable, inextricable, persecution, and manacle). Christine spelled all the words forwards and backwards in just one try! Last night, we had a short quiz on both the spelling (written) and meanings. She got them correct, in just a flash! No hesitation. I asked her if she saw the picture [of her model of the words] and she said yes. We also read The Gift [of Dyslexia] and she was able to understand the whole thing that we read.

Christine is more affectionate, more than she ever was to me. Gone is the fear that Mommy will shout or scold. I have made it my mission to spread the word about dyslexia and the Davis method of correcting it. I keep your leaflet handy and have given a copy to my HR department for posting on our bulletin board.

Thank you!

Dear Mrs. Confer,

Thank you for helping me read better. You also helped me understand the history behind dyslexia. The information you gave me led me to have a dream, and now I am following my dream!

You have been a wonderful teacher and a friend.

Love,

Jessie


Dear Janet,

A simple letter does not seem enough to express how thankful we are that we were given your phone number. Our son, Connor, has excelled tremendously since coming under your care to learn through the Davis Program.

It's been over a year since we've dealt with the constant daily frustration that accompanies dyslexia. After searching for help through a number of programs and private tutors for two years, we were referred to you and the Davis Program. That was also the time when we were at our wit's end on how to help our son with his reading difficulties. This program pinpointed his specific weakness and offered tools to help him succeed. Connor has since made honor roll 4 trimesters in row after completing the program. This has far exceeded our expectations.

However, the best gift that Connor received was not that he has lifelong tools to help him overcome, but that his confidence level went from a three to an eight! That did not come from the program as much as it came from you. Connor has asked more than once if he could go to school at your house instead of down the street! You've truly impacted his life in such a positive way.

Thank you for your continued help whenever we need a boost!

"Dreams are pictures of the heart's desire. They are a roadmap to the purpose of your life. Persist without exception. Stay the course and do not quit. Hold fast to your dreams. You see things; and you say, 'Why?' but I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'
