How is Dyslexia a Gift. Certainly doesn't feel like it is!

I was thinking back today of all the clients I have helped over the past 3 years and how much more confident they ALL were after having a Davis programme.

Dyslexia does not need to be a debilitating learning disability that receives lots of 'sad faces', and 'that's awful' comments and secretly thinking, I'm glad that's not me or my child (but probably are), but instead can and should be viewed as an amazing ability.

What amazing ability I hear you cry - well...


There are 6 Dyslexic Thinking Skills areas. These are broken into two areas: Specific Skills which relate to the career paths often preferential to dyslexic thinkers; and General Skills which relate to most sorts of education, activities and careers.


Whilst no two dyslexics are the same, all will have a combination of some of these skills.
