Dyslexia Correction

The training program at Eduscan is for the duration of 35 hours which is based on the Ron Davis dyslexia correction method. Dyslexia correction training was developed by Ron Davis who was an engineer and had dyslexia until the age of 38. He developed this training to correct his dyslexia. (Marshall,2005)

2. How to focus and concentrate: Here, the focus of kids is improved by using a kush ball method.
3. How to read correctly: Clay is given to children and they are taught how to make three-dimensional letters. With these letters, they start to work on correcting their spellings and eventually start to read.

This 35 hours training caters to individuals with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and dyscalculia. The focus of this training is on correcting reading, writing, math, coordination and attention. It stops the disorientation as they learn how to use picture thinking in a positive way and overcome the learning difficulties.
