The Gift of Dyslexia by Ron Davis

Like other dyslexics, Ronald D. Davis was gifted with an unusual talent for creativity and imagination...yet, he grew up wondering why he couldn't function right in school, where teachers labeled him 'retarded'. After numerous failures and setbacks, he eventually became an engineer, a business man and a sculptor - and at the age of 38, made a startling discovery that enabled him to read a book, cover to cover, in just a few hours.

This inspiration led to Davis' revolutionary procedures, outlined clearly and simply in this book so that anyone - teacher, parent, therapist, or dyslexic - can use them successfully to overcome the difficulties of dyslexia.

In this groundbreaking work, The Gift of Dyslexia, Ronald D. Davis shares his own experiences of living with dyslexia - and overcoming these difficulties through methods that he himself devised, based on his ability to think in pictures instead of words. These revolutionary techniques are taught internationally to professionals who have already helped thousands overcome similar problems.


The Gift of Learning by Ron Davis

Now, in The Gift of Learning, Davis applies his proven techniques to the four most common learning disabilities beyond dyslexia:

  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • ADHD (the hyperactive variety)
  • Math deficiency (dyscalculia and acalculia)
  • Handwriting problems (dysgraphia and agraphia)

With his "unique perspective on the subject of learning disabilities" (Library Journal), Davis shows how, through a series of mental and physical exercises called "Orientation Counseling" and learning tools called "Symbol Mastery," those suffering from these conditions can now learn how to correct them, embrace their gift - and enjoy learning.
