Familyzone Learning Gauteng South Africa
Here at Familyzone Learning we help children as young as 5 and adults as old as 60 from all over South Africa.
The key to our approach is to unlock, master and control the natural talent of visual thinking. This visual thinking ability is present in about 15 – 20% of the population.
This ability is also known as:
- Dyscalculia (number or math dyslexia)
- A reading or writing problem
- A language based learning disability
The resulting effects of a visual thinking learning style is also associated with ADD and ADHD.
The Davis approach to Dyslexia, ADD and ADHD
The three programs Familyzone Learning offer is based on a method developed by Ronald Davis.
The Davis methods works at a root level of the problem, not merely with the symptoms. It is a long-lasting, effective, drug free procedure.
The Davis programs for Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD and Math is one of a few programs available in South Africa that is proven to be effective through research conducted by both South African and international universities.
The program is structured in such a way that you or your child will receive 30 or more hours of intensive, uninterrupted one-on-one therapy. We do not rely on weekly repeat visits, reading gimmicks, special apparatus or medication. We rather focus on the root of the problem resulting in an improvement within one week that lasts a lifetime.
The programs we provide
Ronita from Familyzone Learning facilitates each program in either Afrikaans or English. The program can be facilitated in any other language by means of a interpreter. Each program is presented over five or more days and thus eliminates weekly repeat visits.
