A parent working at home can NOT replicate the comprehensive program that is offered by experienced Davis Facilitators.
However, the book The Gift of Dyslexia contains enough basic information about the Davis approach, and the theory behind it, to enable parents, tutors, or teachers to begin working with students on their own.
A dyslexic teenager or adult cannot work entirely by themselves to use the methods explained by the book, but they may be able to work successfully with the help of a friend or family member.
Some people have experienced success just from following the steps laid out in the book. The degree of success varies depending on the abilities and level of motivation of the students and their helpers.
