#Growing Choices

Davis Programmes address the root cause of learning issues. We work alongside a person’s natural learning style to address areas where confusion with symbols (letters, words and numerals are symbols) has caused ‘disorientation’. Using the simple visual and kinaesthetic Davis tools and approach to focus, we start to see symptoms of confusion dropping away. Clients connect to and work on their goals which can be in areas of listening, reading comprehension and writing. We then see the unique benefit of neuro-diverse learning stylessometimes called the dyslexic advantage, shining through. 

The world needs dyslexics now more than ever.

I trained as a Davis Dyslexia Programme Facilitator after more than 30 years of teaching and facilitation at national and international levels.

I am delighted now to offer Davis Dyslexia Correction programmes at my home in Cambridge, New Zealand. Programmes are facilitated in a dedicated room with peaceful rural views. I also facilitate programmes for individuals in schools, tertiary institutes, workplaces and organisations anywhere in the world.
