Help for Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD – The Davis Program

Carl Nigi helps children and adults who have persistent difficulty with reading and other learning difficulties. Tel: (613) 558-7797 Email:

He believes that Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD are not ‘learning disabilities’. However, they are disabling in a system that does not know how to help. As a Davis facilitator, he can help you to understand the root cause of Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, and many other learning difficulties. He can help you understand that none of these are “bad things”; they are good things that are horribly misunderstood.

The Davis program focuses on what does work, so our clients can take part in life fully and not get held back!”
