Watch Don McCabe as he takes a 17-year-old dyslexic through
his first lesson at the AVKO Educational Research Foundation.
You will be able to watch the young man's face as he discovers
that Mr. McCabe has "tricked him" into being able to read and spell
instantly the word malicious! This will help you see
just how spellbinding and interesting Don McCabe can be in any of the workshops

The AVKO Challenge and Guarantee
Participants may watch a demonstration in which a student (or
students) of their choice learn to spell a difficult word such as scattered, psychology,
or malicious. Your choice! They will learn to spell whichever
word they select without once seeing the word, without studying the word, and without writing
it seven times. This is guaranteed. If Don McCabe cannot get the students you
selected to do this, AVKO will refund the entire cost of the workshop.
