The purpose of this study was to comparison effectiveness of Davis and Fernald methods on reading performance of dyslexia in third elementary school students. This experimental study was conducted as post-test and pre-test by control groups. Statistical population included dyslexic children who had referred to Shenakht and Alefba Zendegi Isfahan city clinics in December 2011. The sampling method was through convenience sampling, so from among who referred to this clinic, 45 children were selected as final sample and were randomly separated into two experimental and control groups (15 students to Fernald method, 15 students to Davis method and student to control group). The assessment tools included Reading Test (RT) and Wechsler's Intelligence scale for Children (WISC-IV). The dyslexic children of interventional group took part in (30-minutes Fernald method for 10 sessions and 30-minutes Davis method for 16 sessions). Post–test scores recorded and data analyzed using SPSS-15 software. The results of covariance a analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the mean scores of reading test in the experimental and the control groups in the post test. The results showed that there was a significant difference between the mean scores of reading test in the experimental and the control groups in the post test (p<0.001). Also, the results of pair wise comparison of groups showed that there was significant difference between the mean scores of Davis and Fernald groups in the post test (p<0.001).
