dyslexia programs


In response to the COVID-19 restrictions worldwide, I am able to offer web-delivered Davis Programs for reading, math, attention, and young learners.  This is a pilot program that will last through December 31.  Please contact me for more information.

Dyslexia Programs:

At Learning Tools, we use the Davis® Methods.  The programs utilize methods that match a dyslexic’s strengths. Hands-on, three-dimensional, and creative activities guide the student to gain significant improvement.

All program work with a student is conducted one-on-one with the facilitator.

Throughout the programs, the students are given tools to assist them. The tools, techniques, and procedures are unique and differ from traditional classrooms so students find these fun to do.

Clay is one of the main mediums used, allowing the student to use natural strengths of creativity, artistry, and visual-spatial thought process. Clay provides the ability to create and explore experientially, their own 3-dimensional pictures for unclear or unknown words and concepts.






In-Person Screening

An in-person screening assessment can be done in North Seattle (Haller Lake Area).  Assessments cost $175 and are about 90-minutes.  The testing includes reading, writing, spelling, math, and attention.

Online Testing/Screening

Online screening from the Davis Dyslexia Association is available through this link: Dyslexia Test/Online Screening.

An in-person assessment and screening is done at the first meeting to ensure that a Davis Program will be appropriate for the student.

Dyslexia Coaching

Sophia provides Dyslexia Coaching as an hourly consultant to parents, grandparents, teachers, and coaches.  The coaching is a separate and distinct offering from any Davis® Programs.

Parenting Skills Course

Sophia offers a 7-week Parenting Skills course designed by Beth Currie-Shier to parents who have had children participate in a Davis® Program in the past.  This course is a separate and distinct offering from any and all Davis® Programs but does utilize skills and concepts the children have already learned during their programs.

Autism Programs:

Currently, Sophia is in training to be a licensed Davis Autism Approach/Concepts for Life Facilitator.  Programs are being offered at a reduced price for clients during the Field Assignments phase (all programs have a licensed specialist following them).   Please see Davis Autism Approach to learn about the programs or call 206.451.7102 for more information.

In addition to contacting me directly, reading The Gift of Dyslexia, by Ronald D. Davis: Better understand the dyslexic learner (or visual-spatial) or read The Gift of Learning, by Ronald D. Davis: Outlines dyslexic (or visual-spatial) learner and handwriting, math, and attention deficit issues. By reading the first couple of chapters you will see if you relate to it and how it resonates with you.
