The Basic Programme builds on the knowledge and skill gained at the Gift of Dyslexia Workshop. It consists of two further training steps:


Basic Field Assignments (30 hours minimum)

A comprehensive set of study assignments, conducted at your home base in your own time. You receive support and feedback from the Davis Specialist assigned to you.


Basic Practice Meeting (4 days)

The purpose of the Practice Meeting is to refine the skills used in delivering the Davis techniques introduced at the Fundamentals Workshop, and to develop increased experiential understanding of dyslexic perception, thinking and learning style.  Practice takes place in groups of three to six people under the close guidance of a Davis Specialist.
