    In 2013, Youtube celebrity Klaire de Lys announced that she wished to raise £5000 for dyslexia bursaries by shaving her head. The bursaries would help children and adults with dyslexia using the world-renowned Davis methods.

    Watch Klaire's moving account of her own Davis dyslexia journey here:

    Klaire's amazing initiative succeeded. And it resulted in a group of us setting up Gifts for Dyslexia, a micro-charity which supports children and adults who need Davis programme help but could not otherwise afford it. Since then further appeals and initiatives have succeeded in raising over £10000 for programme bursaries.

    The Davis Programmes help individuals with dyslexia, maths difficulties, ADHD and/or autism turn around their learning and transform their lives. They are rooted in a profound respect for the dyslexic, ADHD and autistic way of thinking and of being. They help individuals to learn effectively and easily while safeguarding the uniqueness of their existing neurodiverse identity.

    Watch Matthew's testimonial to the Davis Dyslexia Programme:

    ...and Ellie's:

    Gifts for Dyslexia is now working towards registration as a full-blown charity. We currently receive no state aid and so are reliant on the enthusiasm and dynamism of our team of volunteers and our supporters.

    Help us help others with the Davis methods. Donate whatever you can afford, either as a one-off or as a monthly contribution.

    When you give to Gifts for Dyslexia, you help transform lives. And those transformed lives, with their unique talents unlocked, might just transform the world.
