#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; movement, balance and coordination; handwriting; maths;  being organised; executive function skills; or life skills.

For ADHD, we provide an Attention Mastery programme which identifies the barriers to functioning with ease in life, perhaps time management is is an issue or organising particular areas of your life. We then see the unique benefit of neuro-diverse learning stylessometimes called the dyslexic advantage, or the ADHD strengths such as leadership ability, great imagination and creativity and ideas shining through. 

The world needs the dyslexic and the ADHD brain and skills! Our dyslexic and ADHD brains were here before reading! They are high value brains that are meant to be here!

I trained as a Davis Dyslexia Programme Facilitator after more than 30 years of teaching and facilitation at national and international levels. I am also close to becoming a Davis Autism Approach and Davis Concepts for Life facilitator pending one final case study and the licensing process.

Parent & Tutor Support
In addition, I deliver an online group course called the Why Tyrannosaurus But Not if? Parent and Tutor Support Course for Bright Yet Struggling learners.  The “Why Ty” course is a 12-hour course which is hands-on, practical and engaging with tools and strategies that can be applied straight away.

The Kakamega Project Western Kenya
Geoffrey Ashiono director of Math E-Zee tutoring centre in Kakamega Kenya saw the benefits of Ron Davis’ hands-on methods and approach for his teams in Kakamega County. Together with Rachel Barwell, we are setting up a learning platform for dyslexia education in Kenya. Aligning to Geoffrey’s plans, we are starting with Kakamega. We signed a contract with The Whole Dyslexic Society  (The WDS) Charity in Canada who now support this receiving and disbursing funds. We are now preparing to deliver core training and parent/tutor courses into four locations in Kakamega County in collaboration with Math E-Zee tutoring centre.  Click here for information on the initiative.
