Question Everything – Ron Davis

Leave a comment

I have just realized that in all my blogs I haven’t posted much about Ron Davis – one of the most inspirational mentors of mine, who not only is a famous Dyslexic, but Autistic as well. His book ‘the Gift of Dyslexia’ is a bestseller and he was the first to start calling Dyslexia a gift, not a disability. At the time he was often ridiculed or his ¬†positive take on dyslexia was misunderstood – today the word ‘gift’ is very often linked to dyslexia and his work has paid off.

He now focuses most of his time on helping Autistic individual with the same passion that he applied so successfully in his plight to understand the creativity, intuition and intelligence of dyslexic children and adults.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
