Created for people who have dyslexia and face challenges with reading, writing, listening and speaking. It helps to bring clients into an awareness of when they are oriented and when they are disoriented and practice the tools that allow them to master the “on/off” switch of disorientation. Along with this it involves clay work with the alphabet, grammar symbols and common English words so that reading no longer triggers confusions or disorientation; allowing reading to become a more fluid process with greater comprehension.

How Others See It

​​The most common trait associated with dyslexia is the inability to read, or to have significant struggles in doing so. Sometimes this is interpreted as being due to laziness on the part of the person to make the effort to learn. Historically it was suggested that dyslexia could even be due to a physical dysfunction in a person’s eyes that caused them to see letters and words jump off the page when they were reading. It is now proven that this is not the case, and that there is a disorientation factor to dyslexia.

How We See It

 

In Ron Davis' "The Gift of Dyslexia" he identifies eight abilities common to people with Dyslexia:

  • They can utilize the brain's ability to alter and create perceptions (the primary ability).

  • They are highly aware of the environment.

  • They are more curious than average.

  • They think mainly in pictures instead of words.

  • They are highly intuitive and insightful

  • They think and perceive multi-dimensionally (using all the senses).

  • They can experience thought as reality.

  • They have vivid imagination.

Davis™ Dyslexia research has demonstrated that dyslexia is far from being a learning disability and is actually a learning difference. The main differences between a person with and without dyslexia are twofold - how a person creates thoughts and how a person processes new information. Though each person with dyslexia is unique, the common trait between all of them is that each one is a visual spatial/intuitive thinker and a global approach learner.

 

The ability to disorient is what makes a person able to be creative, connect various patterns and concepts together to form a new way of thinking be it in a new business,  type of machine, piece of artwork, musical composition, or dance routine. Artists, architects, designers, musicians, engineers, inventors, forensic investigators and many more achieved success in their professions through their use of disorientation.
