The Professional Davis Facilitator Licensing Programme

This Licensing Programme is built upon the knowledge and skills you will have developed in the preceding training steps up to and including the Advanced Methods Workshop. It provides you with the training you will need to professionally structure and provide the Davis Dyslexia Correction and Davis Maths Mastery programmes for dyslexic clients.

Application to join the Davis Facilitator Licensing Programme may be made at any point after completing the Basic Programme (see below for list of requirements for application).

The Davis Facilitator Licensing Programme consists of seven further training steps:

Advanced Field Assignments and Advanced Practice Meeting

The Advanced Field Assignments and Advanced Practice Meeting refine and deepen the knowledge and skills contained in the Advanced Workshop. Their purpose is to give you confidence in the steps required for the correction of AD/HD, maths and handwriting difficulties.

In addition, the skills acquired in the Basic Programme are taken to a deeper level.

In preparation for your supervised training weeks, final assignments and work as a licensed Facilitator, time is also devoted to the planning and management of a full Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme, including pre- and post-programme care.

At this stage of the training programme, emphasis is placed on the value to you yourself of the Davis tools as a means of enhancing your own communication, rapport and technical delivery skills. The Advanced Field Assignments and Advanced Practice Meeting present you with opportunities to explore the benefits that these tools can bring to you as a Facilitator-in-training.

Supervised Training Pods (3 x 5-day trainings)

These training weeks focus on understanding the basic structure of the 5-day Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme and how this dyslexia programme needs to be tailored to the specific requirements of the individual client.

The training weeks are done in groups of three trainees, under the guidance of a Davis Specialist.� In the three weeks you will have the opportunity to experience all the different aspects of the standard Davis programme. You will be able to:

��Receive a 5-day Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme as a client

��Observe a Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme

��Give a Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme as the Facilitator

During these training weeks there are sessions focussed on training you in the practicalities of running your own professional Davis Facilitator practice � administration, promotion, licensing requirements etc.

Emphasis is also given to developing peer support and networking amongst the trainees of your group. The network of licensed Davis Facilitators in the United Kingdom and throughout the world is a very important resource available to you during your career as a Davis Facilitator.


Motivation and Responsibility Workshop

This experiential 2-day workshop covers the basic principles and concepts needed to work with motivation and responsibility. The correct presentation of these two vital ingredients are essential in providing a successful Davis Dyslexia Correction Programme.

Final Assignment (4 x 5-days)

After completing the three Training Weeks, you are asked to provide four complete 5-day Davis Dyslexia Correction Programmes in your own professional setting at home with dyslexic clients. You will make records (case studies) of these four programmes and submit them for evaluation to your Davis Specialist. These case studies have full confidentiality and will be returned to you once evaluated.

If the presentation of your structuring and provision of the Davis Correction programme meets the necessary requirements, your Davis Specialist will recommend you to D.D.A.I. to be licensed as a Licensed Davis Dyslexia Programme Facilitator. Upon recommendation of your Specialist licensing will be granted subject to annual renewal requirements.
