From the Author
If the schools can't help, hopefully parents will
I am the co-author of this book, which is by an American who is himself dyslexic. Over the past few years, it has been published in seven foreign editions, with a few more coming in 1999.
Since we first published the American edition in 1994, Ron Davis has been giving training seminars in the methods throughout Europe and North America. There is an active web site for the Davis Dyslexia Association International where you can find out more about the schedule.
There have been a number of articles in the UK, but my favourite* is a recent one in The Independent entitled "I Can See Clearly Now." It gives a good synopsis of the Davis methods, and was on their web site last time I checked.
I encourage you to take a look at these training procecures and try doing them as laid out in the book. They do work very well for students who have been struggling in school. They are available from trained professionals, but what gratifies me most about my own involvement is how many parents are successful at applying them at home, straight out of the book.
* Any misspellings I didn't catch are correct in the United States. I'm not dyslexic, just American ;-)
