WHAT WE DO
Our VISION is that any individual, child or adult, who has the 'gift' of dyslexia, will have the opportunity of reaching their full potential.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
"To be an organization which offers a coordinated and central approach in addressing the needs of the dyslexic individual, their families and their community, while ensuring a safe place for accelerated learning, healing, education, social interaction and support of individual growth and development."
WE HAVE FOUR OBJECTIVES
- Fundraise to provide Bursaries for the programs we endorse (Davis Dyslexia Correction programs and Davis Autism Approach programs) to ensure they are available to all regardless of financial status, as they address the cause and bring about self-reliance rather than dependence;
- To champion a Preventative approach; Davis Learning Strategies, so that every child, from the moment they enter school, has an equal opportunity to fulfill their full potential;
- To improve awareness and clarity of what dyslexia really is via Public Outreach (free public talks, Conference information sessions, radio, TV, this website and social media). There is much confusion and many misconceptions surrounding a multitude of so-called learning disabilities. We maintain every individual is learning able, some just don't learn the way they are taught, or are currently remediated;
- and to maintain a strong, supportive Community of like-minded individuals, parents and teachers, via dinners, camps, and activity days.
WHY WE DO IT
There is much confusion and many misconceptions surrounding a multitude of so-called learning disabilities. We maintain every individual is learning able, they just don't learn the way they are taught, or currently remediated. Children with a certain learning style are at a disadvantage from the moment they enter school, purely because of a lack of understanding on the part of the teaching system. All children are entitled to an equal opportunity, and this will occur when the education system changes. Many teachers are ready for change, the children desperately need this change, and we are happy to facilitate it (C.E.O.). At the same time, we have to help children and adults who already struggle, providing them with tools, firm foundations and exercises to function in the current system, and support them with a strong community base.
"I would like to thank all the people who made it possible for my daughter, and other children challenges with dyslexia, who have families in similar positions of financial hardship, to be able to still get help from the Davis methods. I know it took a community of people who dedicated a lot of time and effort to raise the money allotted to us.... Thank you so much for giving us back hope in our lives."
