The Davis Autism programs were developed by Ron Davis, an autistic man with the IQ of a genius, to help transform the lives of autistic people and their families.
Davis interventions are gentle, respectful and incredibly powerful. They are grounded in our philosophy of embracing and celebrating neurodiversity, respecting every individual, nurturing growth, and building on each person’s strengths to overcome challenges.
There are two Davis Autism Approach programs available, depending on the age and/or developmental stage of the autistic individual. Your Davis Autism Approach facilitator will help you to determine the best program to suit the needs of the individual.
Davis Stepping Stones Program
Beginning steps to the Davis Autism Approach program
Davis Stepping Stones is for those who, due to age or ability, are not yet able to access the full Davis Autism Approach program.
It covers the beginning steps of the Davis Autism Approach program, presented in small, supported steps. It has been designed specifically for individuals under 8 years old, as well as individuals of any age with limited (or no) language.
Davis Autism Approach Program
Empowering autistic individuals to participate more fully in a life they choose
Any autistic individual aged eight years or over, who has receptive language (i.e. they can understand what is being said) can benefit from this life-changing program. This includes children, teenagers, and adults. Each program is tailored to the specific needs, interests, and abilities of the individual.
These programs are both facilitated programs with a fully trained Davis Autism Approach facilitator. You may also wish to explore a workshop where you are personally up-skilled to provide the program for an autistic individual. You can also contact us to help you decide which option is best.
“What inspired me to help others with autism is that I am myself autistic. I know what it feels like and I know the limitations that exist as a result of it.
I realised that, given I had found my own way through this chaos (of autism), I could provide a ‘map’ for others of my kind to follow – then there would be value in my existence. The Davis Autism Approach is my best effort at providing that map.”
Founder, Davis Autism Approach
“The Davis Program does not try to fix me or make me normal. It lets me keep being myself, but helps me understand this world I have to live in.”
