What is Davis Concepts for Life?
It is an individualized program based on Ron Davis’s work - Nurturing the Seeds of Genius. This was originally created as a road map for autistic individuals to navigate their way through life, but soon proved invaluable for everyone, because it addresses the fundamental life’s concepts needed to function effectively and successfully. Davis Life Concepts provides the opportunity for you to create meaningful, lasting change in your life.
What is involved?
Firstly you are coached through a series of simple, effective tools to manage stress, control energy levels and maintain focus. Following this, you create clay models of 40 life-concepts, including consequence, time, sequence, order and disorder - allowing you to gain control of your environment. You will also explore concepts such as emotion, want, need, motivation, andresponsibility - resulting in greater control of your internal world and the enhanced ability to apply them effectively into your life.
Benefits of the program include:
Increased self awareness
Self management tools to assist with:
Insight into the relationship between cause and effect
Understanding of time, sequence and order
The ability to establish order in one’s environment and daily life
Awareness of the role that emotion plays in self-motivation
The ability to apply a framework to establish self-responsibility
Recognition of different types of relationships
The enhanced ability to make decisions based on what is right or wrong for self
How did Davis Concepts for Life come about?
Ron Davis developed a programme called Nurturing the Seed of Genius. This was designed to help those on the autistic spectrum navigate their way through life, and draw out the hidden potentialwithin. Whilst training Davis facilitators in this proven method, the feedback was how these conceptsenhanced their own lives. And as families became involved in helping their loved ones with theseconcepts, their own lives also became more enriched. We realized these concepts could be of value to everybody. This prompted us to develop Davis Concepts for life, so that this life-enhancing work could be accessible to all.
"I can’t believe how life-changing these concepts are. I use them all of the time in my life now - it is just so easy to take responsibility for things that had always seemed impossible before.”
