Dyslexia is a result of an inherent mental gift or talent. People who develop dyslexia think in pictures rather than words; they usually have higher than normal intelligence; they are imaginative and creative; and they try to solve problems by looking at the whole picture, rather than working step-by-step. These traits can affect them either positively or negatively. The Davis Dyslexia Correction® Program relies on using the mental talents that dyslexic people share to overcome the learning problems. To do this, students must learn and follow a different approach to learning.
Why is dyslexia a gift?
Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. We are intuitive and highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Because we think in pictures, it is sometimes hard for us to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words.
We can learn to read, write and study efficiently when we use methods geared to our unique learning style.
