What is dyslexia?
“…it is a compound of simple factors which can be dealt with step-by-step”
Ronald D. Davis
Dyslexia is an alternative way of thinking.
Dyslexics think predominantly with pictures as opposed to the sounds of words.
However, dyslexia is not limited to literacy issues. It can affect a range of areas, including motor skills, organisation, focus, time and processing difficulties. Because the root cause of dyslexia is not understood, individuals are often treated as though they are being deliberately ‘difficult’ and uncooperative or lazy.
Try this: imagine an elephant, a house, a stack of books, a pencil, your cat. Now, imagine; ‘the’ , what did you see? A picture or a word – or nothing?
When there isn’t a picture for a word, this is the moment the confusion starts for a picture thinker. They will become more confused and stressed when their picture thinking process does not work. They will concentrate harder and become more tense until the brain will no longer receive accurate messages.
Dyslexia is an alternative way of thinking, primarily using pictures or images, that enables individuals to view the world from many different perspectives and in creative ways. 3D strengths and abilities can cause confusion if applied to 2D activties such as reading or writing. The Davis Programmes help you work in both worlds ease-fully!
