ABC Dyslexia Center is located in Kent, Washington. Our program is based on the methods developed by Ronald D. Davis, who founded the Davis Dyslexia Association International and the Reading Research Council. Details of the program may be found in the book “The Gift of Dyslexia” written by Ron Davis.

Dyslexia was the first general term invented to describe reading problems. Now over 70 names are used to describe various aspects of dyslexia. There are many different theories about what dyslexia is, what causes it, and why the disability occurs. Recent research has shown that dyslexia is not the result of a genetic flaw or nerve damage. It is not caused by a malformation of the brain, inner ear or eyes. Dyslexia is a product of thought and a special way of reacting to confusion. It is not limited to reversals of letters and words-a common misconception. Dyslexia is not a complexity; it is a compound of simple factors which can be dealt with step by step.
