Like other dyslexics, Ronald Davis had unusual gifts of creativity and imagination, but couldn’t function ‘properly’ at school; it wasn’t until he was an adult that he discovered techniques that allowed him to read easily.
Written from personal experience of having dyslexia, this breakthrough book offers unique insights into the learning problems and stigmas faced by those with the condition, and provides the author’s own tried and tested techniques for overcoming and correcting it.
The experience of being dyslexic is fully explained, from its early development to how it becomes gradually entrenched, as a child comes to rely on non-verbal perception. Davis demonstrates that people with dyslexia have special talents of perception, imagination and intuition, which can be used to enable them to master the problems they have with reading and mathematics. He shows how the dyslexic mind works and how problems are compounded through failure and frustration.
Ronald Davis was told at age 18 that he would never be able to read properly, and was diagnosed in his twenties with dyslexia. After a successful business career Ronald Davis discovered that he and other dyslexics thought in terms of three-dimensional pictures rather than words, which made learning to read by conventional methods difficult. He has gone on to found the Davis Dyslexia Association International, which teaches his methods to thousands of children.
