The Gift of Dyslexia

Davis Approach Consults at Roots


The Davis Approach is a new way to master learning. On Friday, March 24, Roots is sponsoring 2-hour consults for local families who are interested in learning if their child is a picture thinker, and if the Davis Method might help. You can come meet Davis Coach Jean Moser (Learning Tools for Dyslexia) and talk with her in a comfortable setting at the Roots location at the PG UMC on Pleasant Green Road.

Read a personal account about how the Davis Approach has already helped our Roots community: Building Words Together, by Zoë Jones

When: March 24, 2023

Appointments available at 10:00 am and 3:00 pm

Roots rate = $100 for 2-hour consult
