Dyslexia is one of the most misunderstood learning styles in today's educational landscape. Although most people associate Dyslexia with letter reversals and reading difficulties, Dyslexia encompasses a much larger umbrella of learning difficulties.
At one time, Dyslexia was defined as deficiency in brain function - a disability. We now know, however, that Dyslexia is not a result of a genetic flaw - or brain, eye, or ear malfunction - it is a difference in thinking and learning style that can cause confusion when dealing with symbols.
In fact, some of our culture's most talented people are dyslexic - as is true for many of the pioneers in technology, physics, and art.
Today, there is real relief for the struggle, frustration, and self-esteem-crushing symptoms of Dyslexia and the many other variations that accompany the same thinking style, including (but not limited to):
- Attention/Focus difficulties
- Reading Comprehension difficulties
- Reading disability
- Language-based learning disability
- Phonemic Awareness disability
- Dyspraxia (balance)
- Dyscalculia (math)
- Dysgraphia (hand writing)
- Auditory processing disorder
- Visual processing disorder

Ronald D. Davis made a discovery in 1981 that allowed him to control the perceptual distortion that accompanies Dyslexia. This discovery led him to the creation of the Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program. Hear more about his life and the discovery that enabled him to correct his perception:
It is never too late to overcome Dyslexia! The Davis® programs are highly effective for teens and adults as well!
