Dyslexia and ADD Programs:
The initial consultation will determine if the Davis® Program is a suitable solution for the client's learning difficulties and goals. The typical initial consultation will take about 2-2.5 hours and includes a symptoms profile, short reading & writing assessment, and a perceptual ability assessment. Then an explanation of the program is given. For children, participation of at least one parent is required.
At GEM Learning Center, children and adults with Dyslexia are treated with the utmost respect and dignity that they deserve. This one-on-one, week long, creative-based 30-hour program is DESIGNED for the learning style of the visual-spatial person. While many other programs address only the symptoms of the learning disability, using tedious drill and repetition — the Davis methods get to the ROOT CAUSE of the learning difficulty and correct it using their natural strengths. Clients will learn HOW THEY LEARN and leave with the ability to implement the knowledge obtained during the program into daily life.
Anyone that will assist the client meet their post-program goals should attend Support Training. Support training is usually held on the afternoon of the last program day.
Covered during this:
Follow-up: The client will leave the program with all of the tools, understanding, and materials necessary to implement the program into their every day lives and achieve positive results.

Support: The goal of GEM Learning Center is to have successful and confident clients. All efforts will be made to ensure that experience, even after the program is over! Unlimited phone or email support is available. Post-program visits are highly recommended.
