About Us

The Danks Davis Dyslexia programme is effective for all ages, including adults.

Zannie Danks Davis, the author of this programme, had dyslexia herself and developed this unique, multisensory approach to address the needs of those with dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

The programme teaches people with dyslexia in the way that they learn, opening their minds to the world of words. Lessons – individualised literacy tuition

The programme consists of a one-hour lesson, once a week, in a relaxed and friendly environment. Lessons are tailored to your child’s strengths. No homework is necessary. Students love the lessons and leave feeling happy, successful and more confident.

The tutor will always keep you updated on your child’s progress. Before starting lessons with a tutor, your child will have an Initial Consultation. This includes your child being taught how to learn with this programme and having their first lesson to establish the starting level.

You are then able to view a DVD demonstrating what a typical lesson involves and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
