Smart Start Dyslexia Correction Center Services Overview
Davis® Dyslexia Correction Programs utilize methods that match the individual’s learning style. Hands-on, three-dimensional, and creative activities guide the student to gain significant improvement in at least one academic skill, but often more. Drill, repetitive, and computer-based exercises are not implemented.
Today’s traditional classrooms often utilize a limited number of hands-on activities requiring creative thinking and kinesthetic endeavors for completion. These are the exact learning activities which allow the dyslexic or visual-spatial learners to excel. Their three-dimensional thinking abilities permit them to easily think “outside the box” to resolve and answer problems. Their thinking abilities go far beyond what is taught through worksheets and timed tests.
Davis programs are comprehensive, allowing the student to gain improvements in all areas of development: physical, intellectual, social, and emotional. These four areas of human development are intertwined, meaning that the strengths or weaknesses of one area will directly affect the strengths or weaknesses of the other areas. Imagine how doubly exciting it is for the child who completes a program week with significantly increased reading skills, but now can also catch a ball or jump rope for the first time! Davis programs have the power to fuel the total child, not just one’s academic struggles.
All program work with a client is conducted one-on-one with Kim Carson, a certified and licensed Davis Dyslexia Facilitator. It is guaranteed that the client will not be shifted between a variety of tutors, as often occurs in other learning centers. The structure of the program (5 consecutive days/6 hours each day) allows the facilitator to truly learn about the client. This uninterrupted time allows numerous confusions endured by the student to surface, something not easily found through single, hourly sessions.
