About Sally Beulke

I have been a teacher with more than 30 years and I have also had a very personal involvement with Dyslexia. My daughter was 7 years old when she was diagnosed with Dyslexia and that is when my journey through the Dyslexic maze began.

I had been teaching Maths and Science before my daughter's diagnosis so I immediately completed another degree (B.Ed.- specialising in Literacy). This enhanced my ability to navigate through the options and programs available within the education system. For more than a decade my daughter and I worked our way through every available program and treatment recommended for Dyslexic people. We endeavoured to eliminate the confusion that language symbols caused her. My daughter's obviously high intelligence was not being reflected in her text based school work. She left school early as her entire school experience had been extremely negative.

I had by that time directed my teaching career towards the adult sector and I had become a qualified assessor. I worked in Language and Literacy program development and management. This allowed me to keep looking for new research and methods available to help Dyslexic individuals.

I was at a Literacy conference at Melbourne University when I discovered Ron Davis' book, "The Gift of Dyslexia". After reading this totally new approach to helping Dyslexic people, I was determined to undertake the Davis Facilitator Training Certification. I commenced training with Ron Davis in San Francisco in 2000 and have been working with the Davis Dyslexia Correction Programs since then. Over the years I has worked with a great many extremely satisfied people from all around Australia and overseas, and I am always amazed by the powerful results achieved by these programs.
