Rocky Point Academy Statistics: Success Rates
Rocky Point Academy was established as an in-home tutoring service in Bremerton, Washington in 1998. Rocky Point Academy then incorporated and moved to Calgary, Alberta in 2000, where it became a learning center and continued to achieve a 97 per cent success rate. The Davis Dyslexia Correction Program®, established in 1985, is offered in over 30 languages and over 40 countries, making it the most widely used dyslexia correction program in the world.

The reading level was measured using the Ekwall-Shanker Reading Inventory. This measures word recognition as well as comprehension when reading both silently and aloud.
Although the above data includes six and seven year olds, the Davis Dyslexia Correction® programs are designed to be used with eight year olds and older. Most six and seven year olds will require a Davis® Reading Program for Young Learners, which results in a more gradual rate of progress as foundational skills are built.

Our experience is that clients continue to improve as they work with the tools they’ve been given during the week. Since we are correcting, rather than giving coping mechanisms, the tools can be used for a lifetime of self-correction.
