The Dyslexia Gift
At the root of dyslexia is a natural ability, a talent. Not all dyslexics are the same, but many possess special talents, which include:
Thinking mainly in pictures instead of words
Being highly intuitive and insightful
Thinking and perceiving multi-dimensionally using all senses
Curiosity about how things work
Being highly aware of their environment
Utilizing the brain’s ability to alter and create perceptions
Having vivid imaginations
It is estimated that as many as a third of all people are born with dyslexic talents. Of those, as many as half may experience marked difficulty in school.
The goal of the Davis Program is not to eliminate these talents. Instead, we show students how to gain control, and use their talents for academic success.
