In addition, use is made of the so-called Focusing. In addition, exercises are done which aimed to hold his attention. Children learn the method so both physically and mentally focusing on what they should do. Moreover, they also learn how so keep that attention.

What does the Davis-leerstrategieën® program?

Research has shown that the learning strategies for all children are suitable, on their own level. It teaches them to concentrate on tasks, but it also fits in with the creative learning process. Learning skills are developed, also are not temporary, but formed a solid foundation that continues to exist and from which the child develops. The reading improved, because it emanates from the mind of the child and not an adult. It is short, fun to read, partly because the substance is clearly understandable.
Children also learn to use their time much better with the method. Because we focus and there is so much distraction, a task can be completed properly and efficiently. The child is so very much aware of, because it taught him. So the student develops a very independent attitude
The confidence is growing, because children see that what they do is going well.

Used everywhere

The program can be used for all activities, not just language courses. Also, in the exercise classes, or manual labor is the importance of concentration and concentrated remain of great interest.

Who instructs?

Davis learning strategies can be used by many disciplines. Teachers can be trained in the method so that they can carry it out in the classroom. This ensures effective and efficient reading and spelling instruction.

Davis Counselor

There are also specialized Davis Counselors who work preventively with groups of young children. They are fully trained in the Davis methods and may also provide insight into problems like dyslexia and any solution to do wrong. In the Netherlands only a few Davis counselors, but their number is growing. Below this article you will find the link to one of them.

Further, the Davis-Learning strategies can be used by:

  • Remedial teachers
  • Child Therapists
  • Children Coaches
  • Speech Therapists
  • Parents with young children who want to avoid walking their children firmly at the beginning reading instruction.
  • Second Language teacher education


Parents can obviously play an important role in the process. If they know how the method works, they will also assist their child. Schools that are important to the method through meetings governed by the Davis organization learn how the method works. Then they can work together in groups with children. This gives a double effect, because parents know how it works and the school uses the same system.

Davis®-learning strategies mentor for schools

However, the teaching method can do more for the school. As a teacher in the primary grades the Davis Learning Strategies workshop followed, the organization can make a Mentor. That supports and then assists in the application of the program. Teachers who have worked for years in their school with the Davis Learning Strategies, or Davis counselors who supervise children individually in their counseling practice can be a mentor.
