Though compatible with phonic teaching, these strategies provide the fundamental building blocks for reading success via a unique non-phonic or pre-phonic approach. Research suggests that the Davis Learning Strategies promote the able, gifted and talented while reducing or eliminating the onset of reading difficulties for at-risk learners.
