The Davis™ Reading Programme for Young Learners
Providing important tools to beginning readers. Through the unique partnership philosophy of the program, parents or other family members gain the skills needed to provide the child with ongoing quality support.
The Best Start
Young learners deserve the best start we can give them. Strong research evidence suggests that children who are exposed to Davis methods at pre-reading or primary level (age 5-8) benefit in the following ways:
- They are highly unlikely to develop a learning difficulty.
- They are significantly more likely to qualify for gifted programme referrals.
- Their basic word recognition will be among the highest levels expected for their age group.
Our aims are
- to provide lifelong learning skills to younger children through a partnership between Facilitator, child and parent
- to give one or both of the child’s parent, or a support person, sufficient confidence and skill to continue working with the Davis Young Learner’s Kit after the program
- to provide children with the conceptual skills needed to develop reading fluency and comprehension.
Typically, the Facilitator will schedule 25-30 hours of time with the student every morning over 2 weeks; at least half or more of the programme time will include the parent and/or support team participating in helping the child with the new skills and techniques.
