The Davis Attention Mastery programme is a solution for adults and children over the age of 8, who have difficulties with:
The programme provides an individual with three mental ‘Tools’
to help with the root cause of the difficulties:
Individual learning goals relating to focus, behaviour or relationships are addressed through the medium of clay modelling. The Davis Concept Mastery method is hands-on, visual and meaning-based, enabling individuals to use their natural skills and talents to learn.
Key life concepts such as change, consequence, cause and effect, time, sequence and order and disorder are explored through the medium of clay. Individuals with behaviour or attention issues often have gaps in their understanding and application of these concepts. Mastery of these concepts is achieved through the creation of clay models and exploration of them in ‘the real world’. Individuals then apply the concepts to their personal experiences.
“We have been lucky to have Rachel spend time with our daughter on the Davis Attention Mastery Programme. I learned so much as a parent, it has helped me to understand some of what goes on for my daughter. The concepts and tools that we’ve learned have been illuminating, and I have found myself referring to them in my own life too. I experienced Rachel as kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. We are so fortunate to have her in our town. “

According to ADHD New Zealand, around 1 in 20 New Zealanders have ADHD. Unfortunately, ADHD is still misunderstood, and for many people around the country, it goes undiagnosed or untreated. At Master Dyslexia, I aim to support neurodiverse individuals to use their unique learning preferences to overcome their barriers to learning.
I use the Davis method, a series of tried and tested programs, to manage and support the learning needs of neurodiverse people. The Davis Attention Mastery program was designed to provide solutions to those living with ADD / ADHD. However, before you or your children undertake the Davis Attention Mastery program, it can help to understand a bit more about ADHD and ADHD treatment options.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) describes a unique and neurodiverse brain structure. The prefrontal cortex of a person with ADHD develops differently than in neurotypical people. The different development makes controlling and filtering attention, behaviour, and emotion far more difficult for people with ADHD, which is why it’s considered a ‘disorder’.
Every person with ADHD has a varied collection of traits, which makes each case entirely unique. However, there are a handful of commonalities that mean individuals usually fit within one of three subgroups. They are;
ADHD presents differently in everyone, and a person with ADHD may have many or just a few of the following characteristics:
It’s important to establish that there’s no way to ‘fix’ ADHD, as people with ADHD aren’t broken. Individuals with ADHD have unique, incredible minds and should be supported to manage ADHD in the long term. Master Dyslexia offers a program that empowers participants with ADHD or ADD to manage their individual learning preferences. There are many reasons why someone with ADHD in the Wellington region may wish to undertake a Davis Attention Mastery programme.
It’s a common misconception that you can only treat ADHD with medications, but effective natural ADHD management solutions are available for adults and children. Alternatives that have shown positive results include:
At Master Dyslexia, I support people looking to adopt natural alternatives. That’s why I provide the Davis Attention Mastery program, a tried and tested program that helps adults and children harness their specific perceptual talents to achieve extraordinary outcomes in work, school and life.
The Davis Attention Mastery program is an incredibly innovative program that uses hands-on visual, kinaesthetic and meaning-based methods to enable individuals to learn with their natural skills and talents.
Key life concepts such as change, consequence, cause and effect, time, sequence, and order and disorder are explored through the medium of clay, giving people with ADHD an opportunity to engage and explore the concepts in the real world.
The program powerfully addresses the root causes of ADHD for young people and adults alike, as it provides the individual with mental tools to help with the root difficulties associated with ADHD. Some examples include:
At Master Dyslexia, I’m passionate about helping individuals shift their focus and behaviour difficulties into learning talents and maximize their potential in many aspects of life. I adopt the highly effective Davis methods to help neurodiverse people recognise and correct their perceptions of change, cause and effect, consequence, time, sequence and order. This empowers them to take control of their learning and success, in school, work and life. If you’d like to learn more about natural and effective ADHD solutions, contact me today.
