The Davis® Dyslexia Correction Program was developed by Ronald Dell Davis from independent experimentation and research, beginning in the early 1980's. Davis, who was himself severely dyslexic, had discovered a simple mental technique that radically improved his ability to focus on print. Through clinical experience working with dyslexic adults and children, Davis and his colleagues improved and refined the methods over time. In 1994, after working with more than 1,000 clients, Davis published the first edition of The Gift of Dyslexia, detailing his methods and the theory behind them. Since that time, hundreds of professionals have received advanced training in Davis methods, and licensed Davis Facilitators have collectively worked with more than 20,000 clients.
Ron Davis, subsequently wrote 'The Gift of Learning' and created the Math Mastery Program, followed by The Young Learners Program and The Attention Mastery Program.

Ron was deemed to be autistic when he was born and recently he achieved his ultimate goal to create a program for individuals with autism: the Davis® Autism Approach.
An in-depth look at a revolutionary approach to empower individuals with autism, and provide the understanding and tools needed to achieve their full potential. The Davis® Autism Approach is uniquely geared to the autistic perspective, and enables each person to make sense of their world and the motivations and behaviors of those around them.
This book explores the history of development of the Davis method, explores its connections to emerging scientific research and takes the reader on a guided journey through the three phases of the program: Individuation, Identity Development and Social Integration.
