About Ronald Dell Davis
Abigail Marshall and Ronald Dell Davis are the authors of several books focused on dyslexia and learning. Ron Davis wrote "The Gift of Dyslexia" and "The Gift of Learning." Abigail is the author of "The Everything Parent's Guide to Children with Dyslexia" and "When Your Child Has Dyslexia." Abigail Marshall is a graduate of the University of California, and holds degrees in Applied Behavioral Sciences and Law. In addition to writing, she manages several educational and health web sites. Ron Davis was severely autistic as a child. He began to emerge from his void of isolation as a teenager. As an adult, he has been employed as an engineer, a businessman, and educator. He is married, and is father and grandfather. The program described in this book largely replicates the steps Ron took in learning to function within society. Abigail met Ron in 1994 when she was seeking help for her own son's dyslexia. She was astounded by her son's rapid success using the Davis techniques, and became fascinated with studying research developments in neuroscience in an effort to better understand the science that would validate the Davis theories.
