Although attention difficulties and attention disorders are more apparent in children, they can continue to cause difficulties into adulthood. The most common symptoms are poor time management and the lack of completion of tasks (even though you may have invested a tremendous amount of time).
Help with these difficulties is provided by using the Davis« methods as outlined in The Gift of Learning. The programme is tailored to meet your own goals. These may include improved focussing, time management or impulsivity problems.
It is particularly important to be aware of your internal clock and energy level. The technique of Dial-Setting provides you with an imagined regulator or thermostat so that you gain personal control over the setting of this internal clock.
You will be shown how to find the relaxed and focused state which is suitable for reading and other studies. Once this has been learned, you are ready to build the skills that will allow you to overcome your difficulties. You will be shown how to recognize and control the thought process that leads to distorted perceptions of letters, words and numerals.
Distorted perceptions do more than create symptoms of dyslexia. As a child you may have used disorientation for entertainment; you may have been disoriented for long periods of time creating an imaginary world to play in.
This frequent disorientation makes it difficult to learn basic lessons of life.Cause and effect would not have existed in this imaginary, alternate reality world. Therefore, as a child, you may not have developed a clear understanding of the concept of consequence.
Additionally, you may experience a distorted sense of time. If you don’t experience the passage of time uniformly, you can not develop an inherent sense of it. Without this inherent sense of time, it is difficult to develop an inherent sense of sequence.
That is, to understand the way things follow each other one after another.
Davis® Symbol Mastery uses clay to explore and understand the fundamental concepts of consequence, time, sequence and order. Once these concepts have been mastered, you will have a clearer understanding of their importance and improved time management skills.
