"We can't thank Jacalyn enough for giving K the tools we have been desperately looking for to help her find become an excellent reader!! We've tried other methods that didn't work for her and she found them frustrating and time consuming. In the 5 days, she went from a 2nd/3rd grade reading level to a 6th grade reading level. Seeing and hearing her read the final day, brought tears to my eyes!!! We are SOOO beyond grateful to Jacalyn and the Davis Program for this amazing gift."

What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a difference in learning style and thinking style that can cause confusion when dealing with symbols. Dyslexia is not the result of a genetic flaw - or brain, eye, or ear malfunction as once believed. Nor is it only related to letter reversals and reading difficulties. It encompasses a much larger umbrella of characteristics.

The Davis Reading Program for Young Learners is designed for emerging learners and “at risk” children ages 5-7 years old. This parent-coached program prepares children with the essential tools to learn to focus and create solid foundations for learning language. Because parents are involved, they learn best how to help their children learn the fundamentals of reading, writing, and spelling. 

Provided on a modified schedule (typically 9 am - 12 pm) over a two-week period, you and your child will be guided through using clay and the Davis Symbol Mastery techniques to:

  • Master upper- and lower-case alphabet letters
  • Techniques to catch and resolve confusions with letters caused by shape (i.e. b, d, p, q), sounds, or letter formation
  • Gain awareness and understanding of basic punctuation marks
  • Learn fun and engaging ways to master those pesky "sight words"
