Using the proven methods he developed to overcome dyslexia, Ron Davis adapts those techniques to help sufferers triumph over a variety of common learning disabilities, including:

•Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

•ADHD (the hyperactive variety)

•Math deficiency (dyscalculia and acalculia)

•Handwriting problems (dysgraphia and agraphia)

Outlining clear instructions, the author demonstrates that through a series of mental and physical exercises called “Orientation Counseling” and learning tools called “Symbol Mastery,” those struggling with these conditions can now learn how to correct them, embrace their gift, and enjoy learning.
