Dore Program Clinics Close Around World
The Dore Program has announced the closing of all of their clinics in the U.S., the U.K. and Australia.
Tuesday June 3rd - 3:00pm
The Dore Program, which offers non-medical treatment for ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and other neurological and learning disabilities has shut down all of their clinics in the U.S., as well as in the U.K. and Australia.
DDAT UK, the company behind the Dore Program, and its parent company, Camden Holdings, are both being liquidated, and the appointed administrators are currently in talks with a potential buyer.
The Dore Program was founded by the Welsh millionaire Wynford Dore, whose daughter suffered from severe dyslexia. The techniques used in the program are extremely controversial; few studies done on the exercises, which include balancing on wobbly boards, throwing and catching beanbags, and other coordination techniques, proved rigorous enough for academic standards.
The Dore clinics in the U.S., U.K., and Australia closed with little warning to clients in late May, and, according to reports, were accepting payment up until that time. A company spokesman explained that treatment, which cost clients thousands of dollars, was sold at a loss, and although they had originally planned to obtain government funding, that had not yet happened. No arrangements for reimbursement have been made public, but Dore has indicated that it is looking for alternative ways to deliver therapy.
In light of the Dore closings, the makers of The Learning Breakthrough Program, the core therapy used by Dore, issued information indicating that they would continue to provide their "in-home" therapy packages, and have even claimed that the clinic visits mandated by the Dore Program are unnecessary.
