The Whole Dyslexic Society believes that individuals with dyslexia should have causal correction methods available to them regardless of income and will provide bursaries for Davis®programs: Davis® Dyslexia Correction, Davis® Math Mastery, Davis®Young Learners and Davis® Attention Mastery programs (www.dyslexia.com).
We have many enquiries from families on low incomes, single parents, often with no financial support system, who have heard about our programs and are not able to afford them. We have enquiries from young people who have dropped out of school and do not wish to become unemployable.
Therefore, at this moment in time, we are asking independent individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations to donate to our bursary fund. The bursary will never be complete; there has to be some input by the individual and/or their family. All Canadian Davis Facilitators can apply on behalf of a potential client.

Before The Program
A: I would like to thank all the people who made it possible for my daughter, and other children challenged by dyslexia, who have families in similar positions of financial hardship, to be able to still get the help from the Davis program. I know it took a community of people who dedicated a lot of time and effort to raise the money allotted to us and to organize the process for determining who would be awarded the help.
N: N offered her entire bank account which has $200 from birthday money savings and we decided that she would contribute half. I feel that her making the $100 contribution herself is a great idea and shows her dedication. It was entirely her own idea to offer this, and I am so proud of her.
One Week After The Program
M: First off I want to say an amazing thank you. You have given R and our entire family an amazing gift. I do feel that we were touched by angels when we were guided to you and your wonderful work.
The doubts that I had about his engagement immediately disappeared! He spoke at great length about all aspects of the program: Orientation, Release, his Dial, Sweep Spell, Trigger Words and of course the clay. He was telling all about the clay models that he had made and their meanings etc. Then he recited the alphabet backwards - something that he is very proud of and does quite regularly now!
I asked him tonight how he felt about his time with you. First off, he gave the two thumbs up sign. "I love to read now." "I am not afraid to read anymore. I don't get nervous and I don't make very many mistakes."
Again, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. This little boy's path changed this past week. R is going to do great things in his life and you have had a part in shaping that!
