The Raviv dyslexia treatment programme is based upon the most updated studies in the field of brain research. It consists of 3 jointly implemented processes, by using a special Raviv – Reading computer programme:
- Creating the specific neurological structure required for the learning process. The program is based on identifying developmental gaps, bridging them and specifically stimulating the brain to create pathways intended for effective reading.
- Training the brain to control two-dimensional perception: the ability to turn a shape into a symbol and to decipher letters and words is essential for the development of effective reading skills. Well-established two-dimensional perception allows the proper development of the faculty to perceive directions and continuity required for the reading process: perception of letters, words, and sentences, entire text passages, reading comprehension, creating concepts and connecting ideas.
- Training the brain in phonological skills: the establishment of phonological awareness. Phonological awareness improves the person ability to access and interpret phonological information associated with written messages that translate sound to symbol.
What distinguishes the Raviv Method from other methods of treating Dyslexia?
Programs in use today and accepted by the educational systems in most countries are strategies for corrective instruction: strategies based on the acquisition and training of “a training wheel” that only perpetuates the problem.
The Raviv Method gets to the biological root of the problem. The program stimulates the brain to create pathways necessary for reading. When these pathways become established, the brain no longer needs the “training wheel” since it is fully prepared for independent reading with no assistance.
A special-purpose and effective program: 16-24 weekly meetings
The first meeting is free of charge and will be used to explain the principles of the Method, to learn the difficulties the person is having and to allow an educated decision to be made.
Dyslexia correction does not depend on age.
