Letters from happy participants and their parents.
I have seen an amazing improvement in Vickie’s gymnastics ability after seeing her use the energy dial and sports orientation she learned with Mr. Des. She now has made the rhythmic gymnastics competitive team.

Thank you for making such a difference for us, and for setting Ken up for a great start to his school year! Ken has had a GREAT week at home!  He’s almost a different kid. Another positive thing to share! Ken realized this morning that he forgot to bring his homework to his dad’s on the weekend to get it done. He was upset for about 10 seconds, then went about using his morning TV-watching time to do his homework instead….on his own initiative! He HATES missing his TV time in the morning and we usually have to let homework go because it’s such a huge fight. It actually seems to traumatize him to be told to do homework… so this was HUGE.  Ken continues to do well in school (hallelujah!), and at home overall.  But we both still struggle with a lot of things and have had a couple of major ‘blips’.  Again, however, we recovered nicely from them, so no matter how difficult the ‘blips’ are, I remind myself that the smooth recoveries are enormous progress.

The most amazing part of Will’s transformation is his firm belief that he has a gift that not everyone has. All of this is owed to Des. His kind, fun manner has been both inviting and caring. Will views Des as both a teacher and a friend. We are thankful for “Mr. Des” and look forward to more learning opportunities with him in the future. Click here to read Will’s success story.

What an amazing week this was for Maryann! She was always full of excitement after spending the day with you. She was so happy with what she had accomplished. She now has a real sense of being able to be successful with her learning. She is bursting with self-confidence. That speaks volumes. We want to thank you for everything that you have done for Maryann. You have given her so much…truly a GIFT!

The Ron Davis Dyslexia and ADD program was truly a life changing experience for me. I came into the program with a lot of difficulty reading, writing, and organizing. After being taught the tools I need to help overcome this I started to use them in all sorts of different situations, and they have proved to help a lot. I now enjoy reading and writing, I do not notice my Dyslexic symptoms anymore, and I have become a lot more independent and organized because of it. I would recommend this program to anybody who had problems like I did, because I know with lots of motivation to succeed, these tools will help in life.

Just thought i would share our success story. After much persuasion, Joey’s school agreed to move him up to his grade level (5) in reading and he is doing just great! At our most recent parent-teacher interview we were shocked to hear that Joey is one of the best readers in the class, and uses every spare minute to read his book challenge novel. His teachers have commented that the Davis program really made a noticeable difference and was well worth the time and money.  Thanks for everything.

It’s a really fun program. It really helps your reading get up to higher levels. When you’re doing the alphabet you have to picture them so you can remember the letters that were causing you trouble. If you can’t read, and you want to be able to read, this is the place to come.
Mitch (11 years old)

I’ve seen that I like reading more. I can understand words more. I’m not going, “duh, duh, duh”, or “Excuse me, what?” as much.

I have two really bright, talented daughters! They have both been placed on IEP’s. I must say that a lot of effort has gone into helping them at school, but they were just falling farther and farther behind. Abbie was in Grade Six, and the school board was trying to convince me that she would learn to “cope”. Searching everywhere for something that could help, I found the Davis website, bought the book (The Gift of Dyslexia), and could finally see a glimmer of hope. When I picked Abbie up after the first day of her program, I could not hold back my tears when, for the first time in her life, she was able to read an entire page effortlessly. Her sister is completing the program this week. To see them struggle has been torture. To see them excel is a miracle. I am so grateful that I found this help in time. My children now stand a chance in this competitive world of ours.

I can’t tell you how impressed I am with how well Katie is doing and how seriously she takes everything she learned from you. I have heard her say things like, “I can write so much more easily when I get myself in alignment”, and she got mad at me when I suggested she use her dial and said, “I have to use my dial in school all day long so I’m not going to do it here!” which was great because it meant she was actually using it!

We were so pleased with his progress in reading that we then enrolled him in the Davis Math Correction Program. Through the use of clay he could begin to understand the concepts of math. His math marks have improved substantially. As you know, we applied Symbol Mastery to music this year, and viola! He got it!

I am getting along with my teachers much better now that I am using my Davis tools and everything at home is really good as well.  Thank you Mr. Des for showing me everything.  If it wasn’t for you I would still hate school now I like going.
Noah L., 14 years old, after Davis Dyslexia Correction and Davis Attention Mastery programs

I didn’t like the thought of her having to go through another year of university without help. Everything seemed to fall into place.   I am so grateful to Ron Davis and your mother and yourself. Cheryl is a fighter and determined to succeed.  She loved your enthusiasm and honesty and that made her feel comfortable from the start.  She also seems less clumsy than before (she sometimes referred to herself as clumsy) – is this because of the re-orientation or just my imagination? (It’s the orientation.)

Hello Cathy,

I thought I would let you know that six years later Keith has finished high school as an Ontario Scholar and also earned a business certificate. He has been accepted at Guelph University B. Com Real Estate co-op program for this fall. We are obviously proud of his achievements and even more proud of the wonderful young man he has become. I follow the Davis world and note the wonderful work you are doing with autism. Thank you for your time and talent when we needed it most.

Mother of Keith

I have been meaning to email you for quite a while. We are thrilled with the progress Colin has made. He is  is a confident and completely independent reader now. The difference is remarkable!

We are so proud of him. He has worked dilligently through all of his trigger words and is currently reading a 200+ page novel. I’ve also noticed how easily and quickly he can read road signs, subtitles, and messages on his video games. Thank you so very much, Cathy.

The Davis Dyslexia/ADD program is a positive life changing program that is delivered and taught by highly intelligent, highly trained, and highly compassionate teachers who work with a child’s uniqueness one-on-one. The Davis program supplied my son with the tools necessary to function successfully not just in school but in all areas of his life. The Dyslexia portion of the program immediately improved his reading, writing, and comprehension skills and the ADD portion taught him how to focus and organize using tools that are geared to the way he thinks-finally, a program that recognizes and understands someone with these issues and works within those parameters. It was a beautiful thing to watch my son’s confidence soar after years of frustration (for both of us). To any mother looking for a positive, simple, gentle approach to helping their child, the Davis program is ideal and I highly recommend it to anyone without hesitation.

Hi Cathy,

I thought you might find this interesting.

I was talking to Shauna today and she said some friends in class ask to see her notes! We talked about how lucky she was to get your assistance before high school. Shauna said she would feel totally lost in Grade 9 if she hadn’t spent time with you. That’s your pat on the back for the week!

Shauna’s mother, one year after Shauna completed the Davis Dyslexia Correction Program

I can balance better, and I can focus on what I am doing more so I don’t daydream so much when I’m trying to work.

Thank you so much, Cathy, for all the tools you have given us. Before, I felt so helpless, and Sarah was so frustrated. Now I know what to do, and I can see it working. I’m just thrilled!”
Sarah’s Mom

Sarah (9 years old)

Today he ran home at lunch with a 16/18 mark on his Friday morning spelling test! His teacher thanked me for bringing him to you. She says he is a different boy and has volunteered to read out loud in class a number of times. His confidence level has soared and he is a much happier and more affectionate child. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU…I wish that all children who have this gift of dyslexia could benefit from working with you.
Matt’s Mom (Matt is 9 years old)

He is reading everything is sight…road signs, menus, store signs, buy and sell books, newspapers…We are all thrilled! We think you are just amazing and this is really magical.
Mother of 13-year-old boy who came to the program as a virtual non-reader

The sun really shone the day we met you, Cathy. Thanks again for your help.

It taught me how to do a lot more work in school. Now, I’m usually one of the first ones finished. Like recently I got 23/25 in my math test.
