What do our clients say about dyslexia correction?

Dear Laura,

Thank you so very much for all that you have done for our Abby this past week! Your concern, interest, and care for children is admirable! You have blessed our entire family beyond our wildest dreams. We look forward to a long lasting friendship and support for your growing business. May God continue to bless you and yours,

Donna V. - Washington, USA


Laura,

Thank you so much for your encouragement, knowledge and drive to help children and adults with these gifts/challenges. Byron has NOT been back on the medication since he was in your program. YEAH!!!!!!!!! So, that's been about 7 months! You are so caring and willing to help and always make me feel better and you help me look at things in a different light. I just wish you could teach him through high school.

Tammra S. - Washington, USA


Dear Laura,

... We're very happy, because his teachers say they've noticed a change of attitude in Nicolás. Now he shows more interest in discussion in class, he's more willing to work in groups, he asks more questions, and they said "it appears that he's coming out of the bubble he seemed to live in before."
... We gave the teachers lots of information about the method, because they were very curious about it. We also gave them a copy of the summary that you left with us, and we told the principal some of the details about the work Nico is doing at home... Laura, I want you to know that yesterday you were in our thoughts, and it was a day when we wished we could have had you near to give you a hug. We're sending that hug in this email and we'll keep you up to date on Nico's progress.

Gustavo D. - Bucaramanga, Colombia


Before doing the program I was a person with a lot of problems. For example, I'd break out in a cold sweat if I had to read. I lacked self confidence. My writing and sentence structure would bring tears to your eyes. But now I'm more oriented and a happier person than before. I'm thankful for the Davis method, and thankful that Laura came to help me correct my dyslexia.

Christian H. - Quito, Ecuador


My son is very happy; I'd say that he's euphoric. He has regained his characteristic energy and congeniality. Today he gave me a hug and thanked me for letting him do the Davis Program. At that moment I realized that all the time, energy, effort and the price have been more than rewarded.

Our Licensed Facilitator and Founder

Laura Zink de Diaz is our licensed Davis Dyslexia Correction® facilitator. Laura has extensive background in teaching. She established Prolinguistica in l990 under the name CBTT, Inc. Prolinguistica’s original mission was to bring the best instructional methods to teachers, whether their focus was on foreign language, ESL, or teaching grade level content to English language learners. Prolinguistica continues to provide high quality staff development for teachers in matters relating to language acquisition.

Laura has taught English as a Foreign Language in South America, as well as Spanish, French, Russian and writing in US schools. More recently Laura served as director of Migrant Education and State Transitional Bilingual programs for the Mount Vernon School District in Washington,

where she focused on instructional reform. Shortly before leaving that position to further develop Prolinguistica, Laura was named the Washington State Migrant Education Program Administrator of the Year for 2001- 2002 for her work to improve the opportunities for migrant students in her school district. In addition to her work as a Davis facilitator, Laura publishes two e-newsletters in English, Singular Minds, dealing with learning, and E-Comp!, focusing on language instruction. She has also recently become editor of the multiligual magazine, The Dyslexic Reader, published by Davis Dyslexia Association International (DDAI®).

Over the last 20 years, in addition to teaching and her administrative work Laura has also presented and sponsored numerous workshops for teachers in Washington and around the country on highly effective language teaching strategies, integrating technology into language instruction, and Total Quality Education. She is the author of a number of books for language teachers, including The Talking T-Shirt and Other Writing Projects for FL and ESL Students and What Can I Leave for My Sub? Quick and Easy Activities for your Substitute Teacher.

Today Laura has expanded Prolinguistica’s mission to include dyslexia correction, a subject which has long fascinated her. As a licensed Davis facilitator she is qualified to provide correction programs for a variety of symptoms related to dyslexia, including reading, mathematics, ADD, and handwriting.

Here are some of her comments about her philosophy as an educator and facilitator:

 

Dyslexia correction is a life altering experience – even for the facilitator!

After a lifetime hearing that they are slow, or lazy, or need to just buckle down and concentrate, dyslexics can suffer from low self esteem. Just 30 hours with a facilitator can lead those gifted with dyslexia to a new understanding of who they are, where their strengths and weaknesses lie; to the realization that they have wonderful talents -- and that once they learn to unleash those gifts, they can learn whatever they set their formidable minds to!

My goal as a public school teacher was to empower my students to learn other languages – students who usually came to me convinced that such skills were beyond them. Through the Davis Dyslexia Correction® process, my mission has become to empower my clients to master a wide range of skills they soon discover are very much within their grasp!.

Dyslexia correction is a wonderful voyage of discovery that I, as facilitator, find incredibly fulfilling. There’s simply nothing like watching people blossom and become more than they ever thought they could be, in the course of just five days! The only thing better would be to undergo that liberating transformation yourself.

I look forward to working with you!
