In 1980, at age 38, Ron Davis overcame his own severe dyslexia when he found a way to quickly eliminate common perceptual distortions. For the first time in his life, he could read and enjoy a book without struggling. After independent clinical research and working with experts in many fields, Ron Davis perfected his program for correcting dyslexia in adults and children.
In 1982, Ron Davis and Dr. Fatima Ali, PhD, opened the Reading Research Council Dyslexia Correction Center in California, achieving a 97% success rate in helping clients overcome their learning problems. In 1994, the first edition of the book, The Gift of Dyslexia was published, and a year later DDAI was launched and began formally training others to provide the same program.
