Math programs take between 5 and 8 days of one-on-one programming with a Licensed Davis Facilitator. Graduates of the math program improve their confidence and ability in math immediately, and will improve even more with simple follow up at home.

Many people who come to us for math-related learning problems are surprised to find they are actually dyslexic. Once they have completed a Dyslexia program, their problems with math disappear on their own. If problems persist, we move on to the program specific to math. The math program deals with basic functions and empowers the dyslexic client to use their fantastic picture thinking ability to their advantage to deal with functions, numerals, and story problem words. Interestingly, the same basic life concepts that are mastered in the ADD program are mastered in the math program because they have a powerful influence on how math is understood and used.
The Davis Math Mastery program gives the client the same focus and energy tools used in the Dyslexia program.Then we use the client's inate picture thinking ability to master basic math concepts. The math mastery program covers counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and fractions which are the basis for all higher order mathematical calculations.
Below is a model a client made of the math story word "by", a common math term and instruction. This word no longer causes this client to misunderstand instructions or orders of operation. As you can see by her "peace sign" fingers, she's having fun too!
