This book changed my life 28 octobre 2010
Par Jeremy Cole - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought the previous version of this book more than 8 years ago. I was 21, and although I would've been ashamed to have admitted it then, I hadn't read a single book cover to cover in my 21 years, including school assignments. I had really struggled in school through my entire childhood and teenage years, and nobody really understood why. I failed every English class in high school. I just wasn't able to read, and it was immensely frustrating. I tested very well, and was clearly intelligent. I got deeply involved in computer programming from a very early age, so my intelligence level was high enough. I could write in English just fine. Yet I still struggled. Nobody ever diagnosed me with dyslexia, but this book looked interesting, so I bought it on a whim.

By the time I bought this book, I was doing well working in the computer industry, but I never really understood why I couldn't read. Well, to be clear, I could *read* and understand words; I wasn't illiterate by any means, but I found it impossible to get through more than a few pages of text. I had severe reading comprehension problems. My mind would read ahead, wander around, and mis-read things, and I would have to read and re-read the same text many times to really understand it (if I cared enough to learn it, as I did for computer programming).

I read this book (slowly and painfully at first, as always), and had a bit of an epiphany. I have applied Mr. Davis's techniques using the "mind's eye", and in the past 8 years I have read literally hundreds of books cover to cover. I now love reading, and pick up a new book at least once a week.

I still find myself struggling with my dyslexia if I am too tired, but that's the only time his techniques are not completely automatic. After years of practice, it's entirely automatic. I also (when possible) carefully choose printed books based on their typesetting (and choose the font on my computer carefully), which helps immensely as well -- I never knew that fonts and spacing could make such a difference before reading this book.

Mr. Davis's explanations of the differences in the workings of the mind -- the way that dyslexics can comprehend three dimensional objects in a different way than non-dyslexics -- made so much sense to me. I've always had a very high aptitude for science, mechanics, and complex systems. I've had the ability to visualize all sides of three dimensional objects, with no effort, and I've always thought this was perfectly normal. Of course I wouldn't trade that ability, that aptitude, for normal reading. Just thinking of dyslexia as a different way of visualizing rather than a disorder is a huge leap in dealing with it.

I know there are a number of negative reviews of this book, claiming that it's pseudoscience, there's no research, or that the techniques seem "silly". Personally, I don't care. The ability to read, to really read and comprehend (and quickly, at that!), has made such an enormous difference in my life that I recommend this book to everyone who will listen. If I had read this book when I was 10 years old rather than 21, I can't imagine how much it would've changed my early years.

Please, if you have a child who is struggling through school but you know to be super smart, read this book and *try it*.

Very gratefully indebted to Dr. Davis,

Jeremy Cole

This Book is a Gift!!! 17 octobre 2010
Par LittleLucy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Hello to those of you reading this review. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone who has or thinks they might know someone who has learning differences. To give you a little insight into the wonderful information this book holds, I will share a little of my story. I was home schooled for 12 years, and went to college right after graduation like the average person. However at that time, I had NO idea I was dyslexic. I had horrible grades at school, lost a music scholarship at college because of the poor grades, and after two years of misery, I dropped out of college. I always knew things were harder for me, and took me longer to accomplish than the average person. I would always run late, forget peoples names two seconds after they told me, dont even ask me to stay organized, and would have a hard time recalling certain words or even how to spell them at times.

Seven years later I decided I had to get a college degree, but shortly after I started classes again, I was having all the old problems with school and my grades. I couldnt figure out what the heck was wrong! I would have exams and study and study for hours only to recieve many "D"s. I would be so excited to get anything resembleming a "C" grade or better! After 2 more years of school, I had had it! I decided to get to the bottom of these "problems". One day, I had dinner with my mom, and after we left the resturant, she asked me something about the menu, I knew the answer and told her. She asked me how I knew that, and I said it was simple because I was looking at the menu in my mind. Like I had taken a picture of it. when I had looked at it earlier. My mom quickly told me, that was a very unusual way of thinking and not typical.

When I got home, I started looking up on the internet "thinking in pictures". After my research, I realised most people dont think that way, which led me to research dyslexia, which then led me to this book! I immediately checked it out of the library, and couldn't believe my eyes! Most everything the author described in the book were all the problems I was having in school! I cried I was so happy..to finally put a name to all the seemingly unrelated issues ive had my whole life! I decided to take a semester off school, and find a Davis facilitator, and go through the Davis Program. So in the last 6 months I've now returned to school, after finishing this program, and my grades have tremidously improved! I also changed my major to Art... which I recently discovered i'm actually quite talented at and love! Whew knew???

If you're an adult and suspect you're dyslexic, and have been experiencing many many failures in life whether it be through your professional life at work, or through your academic life, I HIGHLY reccommend this book. Please read it! It changed my life forever in an awesome way! And even though I do truely believe dyslexia is a gift, I will always have certain "trouble areas" with things, just because that is how my brain functions in a non-dyslexic world. But if you're struggling, dont give up just yet...read this book first! It's never too late... I didn't know until I was 29! Sheesh!

Best book yet on the subject, and a caution. 12 janvier 2011
Par hippiemama - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Being dyslexic, I have read more than a few articles and books on it. This is hands-down the best thing ever written about dyslexia. If you are looking at this book as a tool to help your child deal with this, buy it and use it. Be careful to do exactly as the author indicates, no skipping steps! It will really work if you commit and do it.

Caution: If you are a self-corrected dyslexic adult, reading this to help your kid; heed the following advice. Stop reading at page 128, then skip ahead to page 182. This will explain what to do if in your reading beyond page 128 you begin doing what I did and get a horrendous headache. I had this headache and some disorientation for about four days.

Its the real deal my daughter is living proof 8 janvier 2011
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
My daughter, since she was in first grade would complain about the words dancing and moving on the page, she hated reading, it was exhausting for her. She has always been very gifted, we had her tested for everything to find out where her struggles were coming from. She would test extremely high in oral vocabulary, always 5-6 grades above her current one. They always came back with, she had a processing limitation and that is why she was struggling. They said she had lazy eyes, so we gave her vision therapy...still she struggled, we enrolled her in special reading classes through the school....still she struggled. She always had strong social skills and a relentless work ethic, so she never got poor grades, even though she would stay up past midnight frequently trying to force the reading in her head. She would constantly break down, crying with her reading and writing difficulty. Finally, when my daughter was in 6th and struggling to read at a 3rd grade level,my wife brought this book home. We read it. We found one of the Davis centers nearby and enrolled our daughter. The teachers said we were stupid to take her out of class, but we did. In that 1 week down at the center, she went from a 3rd grade reading level to a 10th grade reading level. She hated reading any book or magazine. After she went through the program, she immediately started reading the Harry potter books and by seventh grade, read The Lord of the Rings cover to cover. All I can witness to is my experience with my daughter...It changed her life. By the end of 6th grade those same teachers APOLOGIZED to my wife and I. my daughter has never since been below a 3.5 and is now exceling in college. The book may sound like hocus pocus, and may not work for everyone, but for our daughter, those years of frustration, and along with it depression, literally melted away from her.

Great resource! 24 juin 2011
Par R. Wood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a teacher, I suspected my 9 year old of being dyslexic when she was in 1st grade. I teach language learners and noticed my monolingual child was having some of the same language concerns that my students were. At any rate, once I finally got a formal diagnosis of dyslexia for her, I started looking for resources to help me to better help her.

I LOVE this book! As someone who has dyslexia, Ron Davis' experience serves this book very well. Like most people, I've always thought if someone had dyslexia or another reading disorder it was going to make their life hard and they would always struggle. Ron Davis has definitely changed my view on that. He provides so many reasons for why dyslexia is a GIFT and not a disability. YES people who are dyslexic will have some learning trouble but it can be corrected and the child's intelligence can really shine through.

If you are wondering if you have a child or other person in your life who may be dyslexic, this book is a tremendous resource. The activities included in the Davis Correction System will benefit anyone struggling with words and letters regardless of whether or not they have dyslexia. Well worth the money!
