DYSLEXIC’S 2-D vs 3-D PROCESS
Dyslexic learners are “picture thinkers,” but more specifically, they are “three-dimensional picture thinkers.” They hold the ability to run a movie in their mind most of the time. This talent allows them to show strengths with building, designing, mechanical thinking, strategic planning, partaking in fine arts areas, and/or competing in athletics. They often have the “uncanny knack” to solve problems before the steps to solve them are completed. Unfortunately, this same strength also may create numerous academic struggles with reading, writing, spelling, and/or math. As a result, parents know their child is intelligent, but it is documented otherwise through their school work.

Each rotation of the 2-D letter symbol, results in a new name. From four different perspectives, the letter “b” can be viewed as: b, d,q, p, P, 6, 9, or a music note.
The 3–D object never changes its name, no matter how many turns or rotations.
Alphabetical letters can easily create confusion. Confusion triggers disorientation. Disorientation is a natural thinking style of a dyslexic person. While it contributes to creative thought processes, it also causes academic mistakes and distractibility.
Davis programs resolve alphabetical letter confusions by teaching students focusing skills to control their perceptions along with alphabet mastery.
