The fact that you have found this website means you have been searching in South Africa for Dyslexia therapy or dyslexia treatment or dyslexia solutions or dyslexia correction,   (In Afrikaans: Disleksie.)  for a young learner, or perhaps for yourself as an adult. You have probably been made aware by teachers and/or remedial tutors that your otherwise intelligent child is falling behind the required grade level, and because of  reading and spelling difficulties might already be fast developing a learning disability which is probably caused by Dyslexia.

You have probably already tried a number of other (mostly very expensive) remedies that are alleged to solve or even cure dyslexia, months of  specialties presented at the school, BUT you have found them not to be effective at all.  You might even feel pressured by a teacher to give your child  prescription meds!  (and teach the child you can not perform without taking a pill!)

I know very well how you feel, I did the same journey.

While you have reached this point in time, don’t wait even another hour.  Your child is probably already

  • experiencing signs of an already permanently learning condition,
  • that has probably been bothering him/her for a long time,
  • creating emotional feelings of frustration, fear, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, to mention a few.
  • resisting any form of reading and learning.

The Davis Dyslexia Correction theory is based on the principle of every problem is caused by one or more reasons – when we identify the reasons and eliminate them, the problem will go away. And this is what we do very effectively to eliminate the reasons causing the disabling effects of dyslexia.

Here at Dyslexia Solutions Southern Africa,  based in Pretoria in Gauteng, we are using highly effective methods in successfully correcting dyslexia obstacles to reading, writing (and handwriting), spelling, attention (ADD), and Math.

The Correction Programme is designed for your dyslexic child’s specific needs and will definitely be the last major effort needed to successfully eliminate your child’s learning disability caused by uncorrected dyslexia.

The earlier we start with the Dyslexia Correction process, the better for your child’s progress at school, his learning ability, and his overall happiness.  The first crucial step to obtaining DYSLEXIA WISDOM is to INFORM ONESELF to really fully understand what the child with dyslexia is experiencing. At this stage, the child is probably desperate for someone to understand him/her.

To start the programme,  feel free to contact your Licensed  Davis® Dyslexia Correction Facilitator, Jan Viljoen anytime at info@dyslexiasolutions.co.za or call at +27 83 413 1428.

The way forward?  Once you have realised that your child needs urgent effective intervention, you may take the following five easy steps:

  1. Contact me, Jan Viljoen, your Licensed Dyslexia Correction facilitator, anytime at +27 83 413 1428. for a free 15 min info-sharing chat,
  2. or email me in either English or Afrikaans  at info@dyslexiasolutions.co.za    giving an indication of your specific interest in Dyslexia and concerns. You will then receive a short questionnaire asking for as much as possible background about the dyslexic experience.
  3. Do the free online Davis Dyslexia Test, save the answers, and send it to me.   Please read the free dyslexia articles that I will give you.
  4. Make an appointment for a formal Consultation (2-3hours) which includes a full Dyslexia Profile Assessment (to be done in person or via Skype). This is to determine whether the person’s goals and the objectives of the Dyslexia Correction programme will be compatible.
  5. Depending on the outcome, it will be up to the parent’s and/or the client’s decision to enroll in the formal week-long, one-on-one programme.  The Programme is offered in Moreleta Park in Pretoria.

Free Dyslexia Screening Test

The first step in determining whether you or your child are experiencing learning difficulties due to dyslexia, is to do this preliminary free and confidential screening assessment in order to get a profile of learning strengths and weaknesses, including a measure of severity of symptoms.

Your answers to the 41 questions are confidential and stay with you. Your results will be shown on screen as soon as you finish answering the questions. You will have an opportunity to print out your results at the end of the assessment.
