... you can put learning disabilities completely behind you with Cathy Dodge Smith, Ed. D. More


Welcome to a new and innovative approach to dealing with the challenges of autism spectrum disorder.

(Présentement nous offrons le programme de l’Approche de l’autisme  Davis  seulement en anglais.)

Find out how the Davis Autism Approach® Program can help you or your loved one emerge from the fog  of autism or Asperger’s Disorder  in a gentle, medicine-free manner.

After completing her doctoral degree in Human Development and Applied Psychology at the University of Toronto, Cathy established a private practice in Oakville, Ontario, as a psychoeducational therapist. One of her lifetime dreams has been to establish a centre where learning disabilities could be fixed. Not only has this dream come true with the opening of Oakville Success Centre, she also has found an incredible way to work effectively with autistic individuals. In her words, “working with clients using the Davis Autism Approach is the most awesome work I have ever done. It is like watching miracles unfold before my eyes. I feel honoured to have been able to participate in the development of the Davis Autism Approach Program, and to experience the joys its implementation brings to autistic individuals and their families.”

Desmond Smith is a wonderful example of how powerful the Davis Autism Approach is. He grew up with severe dyslexia, ADHD, and autism. Now, largely because of the Davis programs he has experienced, he is a Davis Dyslexia Program Facilitator, and a Davis Autism Approach Facilitator/Coach. He is deeply gratified to be able to pass on to others the benefits he has experienced first-hand. His own stories are inspirational for many of the autistic individuals with whom he works and their families.
