Dyslexia Programmes

 

What happens before a programme?

We get together for an initial assessment – no cost, no obligation for families.
A cost of $200 for workplace assessment;
You see the strengths of your natural learning style.
You see goals for yourself.
You have time to think whether a Davis programme is right for you.
Once you decide to go ahead, you clear the time for it – clear your schedule – make time for you!

 

Q: How much time will a programme take?
A: 6 months.

During the initial programme of 5-6 days, the client gets all the Tools they need to create significant change.
This is followed by 5-6 months of simple and interesting practice to strengthen the new neural pathways.

  • 5-6 days for Davis Dyslexia Correction plus 5-6 months of follow-up
  • 5-6 days for Davis Attention Mastery plus follow-up which may involve home or worksite visits
  • 7-10 days for Davis Maths Mastery plus follow-up
  • Davis Reading Programme for Young Learners  – scheduled after talking with parents

Cost: Sliding scale: Family price and workplace or corporate prices are between 5K – 6.5K plus GST depending on the programme, which includes 6 months of follow-up and training of your support team. Funding sources available for some programmes.

Please contact me for encouragement or direction on finding funding for your employee, for yourself or for your child. This programme is provided at some schools at low or no cost. Please ask your school if it is available for your child.

Programmes are 1-1 and include support training for the support team or person acting as a trainer/guide.

I work with your goals.

I give Whānau, ‘Team Client’ or committed individuals training in how to work with their family member for the 5-6 months required after the initial programme. It is simple – it just needs to be done:)

All programmes have 3 x 1-2-hr post-programme check-ins @ 1month, 2 months and 6 months

I am available for questions – and welcome them – over the 5-6 months of follow-up work the client does.

See below the testimonial for how a programme works.

Testimonial
19 year old student – BCAT (Building and Construction and Allied Trades)

… When asked of what else has he noticed, he said “I have heaps of energy! Before I would be tired all the time and didn’t want to do anything. Now I can put my mind to focus on things and I know I can do it.”  

From my observations as a tutor, he is happier, extremely more confident and his willingness to try something new is inspiring. Previously he would not make eye contact, say yes and just stare at the paper, too scared or confused to try anything. 

The fear of failure is gone and he is ok with getting it wrong and keen to keep trying until he succeeds. He happily asks questions to clarify his understanding – he would not have done this before. In the short time you have worked with him Claire, there has been an amazing transformation and whilst there is still work to be done, especially around numeracy…. the difference you have made to this young man’s life is nothing short of beautiful! Thank you… from the bottom of my heart, for working with one of our students.

What happens on a programme?

Step 1
Using your natural learning style, we get to work on your goals
I give you a way to become calm and stay focused
You start noticing moments of confusion as they occur and use your new tools to stay calm and focused

Step 2
The confusion happened for a reason…
You simply use your new tools to remove the reason for the confusion; you ‘detrigger’ the confusions ‘easefully’
We go step-by step
If the reason for the problem is gone, then your symptoms simply fall away.

Step 3
Wow! Let’s have a drink of water with fresh lemon to celebrate!
Next, you put in the pictures or concepts that were missing (due to your previous confusions)

This is easy and fun as…

Your brain is now seeing what your eyes see – accurately

Your brain now hears what your ears hear – accurately

Your sense of time no longer speeds up or slows down

Movement and balance are also accurate

Now you have accurate perception and, along with removal of confusion, this leads to improvements in areas such as reading, spelling, handwriting, listening to instructions, coordination and balance.

Stress and anxiety are lowered and managed.

More importantly, there is now space for self-esteem and confidence to grow.
