Meet Vanessa Diaz...
As a Special Education Teacher, I was given The Gift of Dyslexia by Ronald D. Davis from another teacher that had used some of the tools with a student with great success. After reading the book, I began to use some of the tools with students in my classroom and the results were amazing! I realized quickly that I wanted to know more.
After doing some research, I found the Davis Learning Strategies for the classroom. Amazed by our previous success just based on steps outlined in the book, our local school district had 30 teachers trained in the Davis Learning Strategies and the tools and strategies were used in our classrooms with great success.
Now completely convinced that the Davis® methods had miraculous results for our students, I wanted more still. Within a year, I attended my first training to become a Licensed Davis® facilitator. With each experience, I learned how to use these tools for myself as well as with my students. As a facilitator, I can now share these tools in my private practice, Diaz Dyslexia and ADHD Correction Center, to help clients of all ages and school systems to enhance the own gifts and correct the disabling aspects of dyslexia and ADD/ADHD.
Here's what some clients have had to say about the Davis® program...
The Davis program has literally changed my child's life! It has been a remarkable journey with exciting milestones along the way. Thank you for your amazing work!
As an adult with Dyslexia, I didn't think there was much hope for change, but after going through the Davis program, I am seeing huge improvements...in everything from my ability to focus and pay attention during business meetings, to composing emails, and to communicating better with my coworkers (and spouse). I would highly recommend this program to anyone!
Reading is a lot easier now! I finished my first real chapter book yesterday and asked my mom to get me another one. I feel happy and better about school since my [Davis] program.
Expert Testimonies for the Davis® methods...
"Ron Davis is a revolutionary and profound thinker and has discovered what history will record as one of the great insights in the fields of learning and how the mind works."
"These [Davis] procedures have an excellent foundation in learning theory. They use each of the senses for learning and provide for concept integration."
"After hearing so much about what kids labeled 'dyslexic' can't do, it's refreshing to learn from Ron Davis about the gift of dyslexia. Davis helps us reframe the learning abilities of kids who have trouble reading, yet who possess superior visual-spatial understanding, and he provides important clues as to how they can be reached."
