How can this Problem I am Living with be called a 'GIFT?'  . . .

With a rising success rate with clients, the  'Sydney Dyslexia Correction Program and Workshops' are becoming more widely sought after and recognized by educationalists, parents, teachers and tutors as a highly effective solution for individuals struggling in the 'system'.

The program offers tools for visual learners to not just cope, but thrive in an auditory learning environment. 

The ability to regain their focus is critical for these learners and for their future success.

Another component of the program will help them to eliminate those confusions or the 'triggers' for those confusion.

Sydney Dyslexia provides one-on-one correction programs by a licensed Davis facilitator. The standard program can run from Monday through to Friday (all depending on individual needs)


The program is for both Adults and children. 

A client will gain the knowledge and skills necessary for them to access their own learning potential. These tools, when used, will open the doors for a lifetime of learning and success.

Sydney Dyslexia Correction's approach is not based on tutoring or drill, but actually resolves the root causes of problems experienced by individuals with Dyslexia or ADD.

Individual Correction Programmes:

3 Step Program Schedule

Step 1

Contact us and book your consultation.
An initial consultation not only assesses whether the individual is suitable for this program, but it also determines their learning style, their needs, goals and if they are ready to change.

Step 2
A program is tailored to an individual client's needs, provided one-on-one. Programs can run up to 30 hours, over 5 consecutive days.

The program works in harmony with the person's visual learning style and provides strategies to become and remain focused.   Picture thinkers are confused by things that make no sense to their picture thinking style . . .words like - if, the, of, by . . .give them a 'blank' resulting in a sense of frustration and negative emotional reactions.  We call them trigger words - they are mastered using clay, to create all three parts of a word:

Its Meaning,

Its Sound,

 . . . and Its Spelling.

Step 3
After a program

It is important that the individual be allowed and expected to take charge of their own learning. Training is provided for a support person to guide them through this process.

How Do I Know If It's Dyslexia I'm Dealing With?

Whether you are an adult or you are here for your child / spouse / sibling / friend, you are probably looking for answers to some kind of Learning Problem that you or your child or someone you know may be experiencing; and therefore need some guidance or information to help you determine this.

Join me in exploring what else is possible for you and your life!

How often do you have the same thoughts, feel the same old feelings and repeat the same old life patterns you know are not working for you or rewarding ... but you keep repeating them anyway? How often do you feel there is something wrong with you because you just can't 'get' this reality "right"?

-- What if the "right way" is only a question of perspective?

-- What if there is no right or wrong?

-- What if you already know everything you need to know?

When limiting patterns are corrected and released, the magical abilities of the Infinite 'You' are realized. With new tools, this program can open you to creating a powerful gateway of possibilities where you are the creator of your life, a life that finally makes sense and begins to work for you.

There are a couple of ways to bring these tools and techniques into your life, for example, through books and DVDs, but the most effective way is through a program.

As a talented being, isn't it time to use your strengths, talents and abilities to create a phenomenal life?

This program is unique for each person.  Each session is confidential and conducted with a high regard for your personal limits and abilities, as well as support and encouragement.

Is it time for you to create a new life?

Locations for Program

Dyslexia Retreat @ 11/9-13 Hutton Road, The Entrance North:

A Dyslexia Correction Program takes 30 hours - usually over a period of five days, six hours a day. You drive to a facilitator early in the morning to beat the rush hour and pick up the child any time between 3 pm or 4 pm. 

What if you woke up with the sun rising over the ocean just outside the window, went for a walk or swim in the ocean in front of your room, hope to catch a glimpse of a dolphin or a whale, then eat a wonderful healthy breakfast and start the program. With as many breaks as you need, the program takes as long as it takes. But I promise you that by the time you leave on Friday afternoon, you will be different - you and your child.

I have seen parents in tears when their child can read a page or a chapter of 'Harry Potter' or any other book, when they couldn't previously read a line - or understand what they read... and that after only 5 days. Every child is different, every program is different and we all achieve what we put our minds to. Often adult dyslexics arrive and are able to fill in the gaps of what they have missed at school, then pass tests for the first time in their lives and get promoted, having gained the confidence they were lacking.

The program includes accommodation and breakfast and there are many restaurants nearby or supermarkets to buy food and cook in the gourmet kitchen. It's a lot of fun and that's just the side effect.

Alternatively, for Sydney Clients, who wish to do the program here in Sydney, you can come to: 

36 Queen Street, Mosman, NSW 2088

and enjoy the same 30-hour-one-on-one program in your own city. Ok, you have to get to Mosman in the morning at a time that suits you to beat the traffic, and pick up your child in the afternoon at 3pm or 3.30 pm. The outcome, however, will be the same:

You or your child will gain the confidence to master their literacy, numeracy and/or attention and will leave with all the tools and materials necessary to continue their journey towards a rewarding school experience.

All our programs are tailored for the individual to use their visual or  kinaesthetic learning  preference to gain mastery in an auditory environment, which their schooling represents. They will be equipped with the tools, confidence and competency to apply their new knowledge in any setting.
