Davis Concepts for Life - Early Years

Meet the Instructor: Jean Moser

I love helping people learn how to learn . 

I discovered that I am dyslexic while I was in training. It was freeing to realize that, although I struggled in my college studies, it wasn’t because I wasn’t trying hard enough. It was because I needed a different way to learn.

My son struggled to read and do math although he was bright, talented and eager to learn.  After years of trying numerous other things, we found the Davis Dyslexia Correction program. In 5 days, he was reading on grade level.  After completing the math program he was able to do math successfully. He went on to complete college with honors.

The Davis methods use our imaginations (what we’re good at) to help us learn. I have also helped people with the Young Learners kit/program.  I have been licensed for 15 years and have helped over 150 people with these methods.
