The Missing Piece

What is DLS?

  • A set of learning strategies providing life-long skills
  • A visual-kinesthetic approach providing children with skills and knowledge at the foundational level
  • Strategies that complement any curriculum already in place
  • Strategies meeting the needs of all learners within a classroom
  • Strategies that teach basic symbols of reading while corresponding to child’s developmental level
  • Project-based learning

Why does it work?

  • Children are taught focusing strategies
  • Children are taught to self-regulate their behaviors
  • Project based learning fully involves each student
  • Creativity is included; students learn on a much higher level than memorization only
  • Provides mastery: learning where conscious thought is no longer required
  • All real knowledge is experiential, as is Davis Learning Strategies
