At the core of our client work at Mind Over Dyslexia, are the highly successful Davis Programs. Research suggests visual-spatial thinkers have significant strengths in the areas controlled by the right side of the brain. Scientists report that the right brain hemisphere is where the mind connects written words to their meanings, and that it is where creative and imaginative thought takes place.
Most other conventional language programs use a phonetic approach which aligns more with left brain activity and strengths. The Davis methods emphasize hands on, creative, experiential, and meaning-based strategies for acquiring skills. Mind Over Dyslexia uses these methods that cater to the right brain, visual-spatial strengths of an individual.
Equally as important is the manner in which the program is introduced, delivered and managed. Mind Over Dyslexia incorporates a personal philosophy and experience which has evolved over the past 25 years of working in the field of education to provide a positive, effective and comprehensive experience.
