Davis Reading Programme for Young Learners

This reading programme is designed for 5 – 8 year olds. It is based on the Dyslexia Correction programme but delivered over 10 mornings to allow the young child to get maximum benefits. Usually they attend school in the afternoons to put into practice the techniques they have learned. A parent or caregiver attends the sessions so that they can continue the techniques at home and do the post-programme work.

  • Letter and alphabet mastery
  • Common punctuation marks
  • 3 steps to easier reading
  • Mastery of basic words
  • Materials required for post programme work
  • Three 1-2 hour follow-up review sessions
  • Unlimited email and phone consultation with your facilitator

The First Step

Call 04 478 2208 or 021 673 119, to arrange a free initial consultation and screening appointment. This consultation will help determine if the Davis Programme will successfully address your or your child's learning difficulties. Allow two hours for the appointment.

If you or your child have been tested or diagnosed for a learning disability, you are welcome to bring along the information, email or fax a copy before your appointment. For an informal online questionnaire, click here.

Programme Prerequisites

For the Davis Programme to be effective, a person must be personally motivated and willing to improve some aspect of learning or school performance. We also require that our clients disclose all medications. If you have any questions about these requirements, please call 04 478 2208 or 021 673 119.

Every Davis Dyslexia Correction® Programme includes:

  • Five consecutive days of one-to-one facilitation
  • For children ages 5-8 we offer a programme of 10 half-days over 2 weeks
  • Support training for clients' families, tutors or teachers on the afternoon of the fifth day to ensure post-programme follow-up and success
  • All necessary take-home materials for programme follow-up
  • Up to three 1-2 hour follow-up review meetings (usually done at 1, 3 & 6 months)
  • Unlimited phone and email consultations

Schedule

Typically we work Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 4 pm with a lunch break between noon and 1 pm. A family member must be available to supervise primary school children during lunch. Short breaks are taken throughout the day as needed for snacks, rest periods, and to celebrate significant successes. Alternative timing can be arranged.

Take the next step to correcting dyslexia!

I can personally vouch for the effectiveness of the Davis Programme for Dyslexia, because both of my sons have dyslexia (as do I). In fact, one son and I have dyspraxia too, and I turned to this system because I wanted to help him.

Did it work? Well, I wouldn’t be doing this if it didn’t! The Davis programme has meant that my sons have gone from believing they were dumb and not achieving to being successful at school and happy with themselves. The Davis Programme has changed the lives and self-esteem of my kids and myself, and I can do the same for you too.

You (or your child) don’t have to live with the frustrations of dyslexia. You don’t have to put up with the low self-esteem that comes from being different. If you’d like to be “just like the other kids” (or adults), or if you have any questions, just get in touch.

Call Margot on 04 478 2208 or 021 673 119 or contact Wellington Learning SolutionsWellington Learning Solutions.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

PS. Here’s what one client said about the Davis Programme:

“Before I started the programme I could hardly read at all. Now I can read a book I pinched from school over 30 years ago. I can read the texts my girlfriend sends me too.”
