Davis Young Learners Program
About the program:
Through working one-on-one with a Davis Facilitator, adults and children gain new abilities:
To recognize and clear up distorted perceptions.
To use simple mental tools to focus, relax, and control and monitor energy levels.
To master and internalize concepts that will help them with social interactions and attention issues. These concepts include: self, change, consequence, before, after, cause, effect, time, sequence, and order vs. disorder.
To apply these concepts in real life situations
A Drug-Free Approach:
The Davis approach gives individuals the tools to control their attention focus and energy level without reliance on drugs or nutritional supplements. These simple mental techniques can be learned quickly, without reliance on specialized equipment or gimmicks.
These techniques include:
Davis Orientation or Alignment: A simple approach which stabilizes and harmonizes an inividual’s perceptions, including the perception of the passage of time.
Davis Dial Setting: Provides individuals of all ages with enhanced awareness and ability to self-regulate energy levels.
Davis Release: A simple and easy tool for relaxation and stress-reduction.
Individuals who are labeled or diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD or ADHD) tend to be highly imaginative and creative thinkers. Often they have difficulty harnessing their ideas and translating thought to action. They know what they want to accomplish, but struggle when it comes to completing tasks and establishing organization in their lives.
Davis Concept Mastery is a system of guided modeling of concepts, which enables individuals to develop personal insight and understanding into their self-created barriers through exploring concepts such as consequence, order, and responsibility.
