What is Dr. Dennisons background?
After receiving his undergraduate education at Boston University, Dr. Dennison moved to California to teach elementary students in the Los Angeles public schools. There he assisted in the implementation of Dr. Constance Amsdens Malabar Reading Program, well known as an innovative approach to teaching reading. Dr. Dennison established his first reading clinic in 1969. Two years later, after studying the seminal work of Dr. Samuel T. Orton in neurology and Drs. Doman and Delacto, specialists in language development, he began introducing perceptual-motor training to his students. Over the next three years, he worked closely with Louis Jacques, O.D., a leading pioneer in vision training, and Samuel Herr, O.D., with whom he shared a learning center. In 1975, Dr. Dennison received the Phi Delta Kappa award from the University of Southern California for outstanding research where he earned his Ph.D. in Education with a major in Curriculum Development and a minor in Experimental Psychology.
