Davis Reading Programme
for Young Learners

A visual-spatial, hands-on foundational programme for those aged 5-8, the Davis Young Learner’s Programme helps children gain skills in:

  • reading
  • writing
  • spelling
  • staying focused.

As a facilitator, I work directly with the child, while providing hands-on guidance and training to a participating parent or support person, who attends with the child for at least 50%, preferably all of the programme.

Key Davis focus skills:


Ensures the individual has accurate perception and can become and stay focused.


Individuals learn to control their stress levels and put themselves into a calm space.


Enables individuals to set their energy levels to suit activity levels and to build rapport with others.

Davis Symbol Mastery

A hands-on, visual, meaning-based approach using smooth, non-gritty Plastilina clay, allowing the child to master:

  • the alphabet
  • punctuation
  • basic sight words

Davis Reading Exercises – using visual, meaning-based Davis Reading Exercises, the child will develop word recognition and comprehension skills.
