Cellfield is a scientific reading intervention program that is specifically designed to create changes in the dyslexic brain. The program was founded on the findings that the brain can change and heal”“called neuroplasticity. Thus Cellfield is a unique reading  program because its goal is to overcome dyslexia and reading struggles rather than simply manage them. The program creates new neural (or brain) connections that are essential for the ability to read and comprehend.

How it Works:

It uses computer software such as eye tracking exercises and phonetic re-training which bonds auditory functions to the visual in the brain. This makes decoding and comprehension automatic instead of laborious. Cellfield develops and strengthens the left hemisphere brain activity, which good readers use when reading. The strongest Cellfield treatment outcome is phonological processing ““ the ability to decode unfamiliar words.

Studies have found that the average student improves 2 grade levels in just two weeks”“and more after twelve weeks! Before and after brain imaging has shown that before the program, struggling readers were reading from Broca’s area of the brain. After Cellfield neural re-training, brain imaging showed that they were reading from the same part of the brain as typical readers”“the parieto and occipito area of the brain.

Cellfield is beneficial for:

  • Whose reading age appears to have reached a plateau and falls further and further behind their chronological age with each passing year.
  • Who are screened as having symptoms of dyslexia.
  • Who are assessed as having language disorders.
  • Who have difficulty in repeating orally given instructions.
  • Who have poor reading, spelling and writing skills.
  • Who have adequate phonological skills but not the required reading fluency, accuracy and comprehension.
  • Who read at an age appropriate rate but cannot recall what they read.
  • Whose reading is normal but feel discomfort or suffer from fatigue.
  • Who have poor working memory.
  • Who feel uncomfortable looking at black letters on white paper.
  • Who have eye movement control problems.

What are the Benefits?

Participants in the Cellfield program will reap benefits including:

  • Improved Auditory Processing Speed
  • Improved Visual Processing Speed
  • Bond Auditory and Visual Functions
  • Increased Working Memory Capacity
  • Improved Eye Movement Control
  • Improved Attention
  • Improved Motivation
  • Synchronized data

Who can Benefit?

Research on the Cellfield Program has found that students ages 6 and up benefit from the program.

How Long does it Take?

Cellfield Program is a 12-week program excluding assessments and eye examination.

The Shortcut to Learning & Behaviour Difficulties – Faster Learning with the Brain-Body Approach

Your child does not have a bad brain or bad body. They simply may not be able to learn, focus or thrive because their brain is ‘untrained’ or they require targeted brain nutrients to better support brain function. No two children are the same: each brain and body is unique in terms of how it processes everything from food to information. Children today are struggling like never before with learning, mood and physical health.

Targeted nutrition and learning therapies are the starting point in transforming many of the common childhood disorders and conditions that are rising in epidemic proportions among children today. Learn more about how learning and behaviour challenges can be transformed with a brain-body approach. Below you can learn more about a whole-brain approach to improving brain health and development!

The Brain-Body Approach

Supporting your child’s optimal health and nurturing their full potential starts with addressing the root causes (there is almost always more than one!) A brain-body approach is based on the most recent knowledge and research in functional medicine. The brain-body approach looks beyond the limitations of labels and singular, one-size-fits-all therapies. Instead an individualized approach which integrates various therapies and interventions helps parents to achieve real solutions in nurturing their child’s full potential.

A Brain-Body approach targets the challenges your child is facing through two avenues:

  1. Nutrition ““ Supporting the brain with the correct nutrition to increase brain plasticity so that your child can better learn, process, focus and be more calm.

2. Neuroplastic Learning Therapies ““ Re-training the brain through learning therapies that focus on changing the brain. These learning therapies such as Cellfield and iLs are based on the latest research in neuroplastic learning. Neuroplastic learning are interventions that change the way the brain processes and stores information for improved learning.

Success ““ It’s not the Brain you Have”“it’s the Brain You Create

If your child struggles in school, his or her brain may not have developed the necessary skills that is required for effective learning. Your child does not have a bad brain that is unfixable. If your child has a difficult time learning, it means your child’s brain is untrained in the skills that are necessary to be successful in and outside of the classroom.

Something as simple as missing a crucial developmental milestone or lacking one or several key nutrients can make all the difference in their ability to process, memorize and learn. Memory, listening skills, visual and auditory processing, attention, logic and reasoning are all skills that can be acquired with the correct learning therapy”“and nutrition. When these skills are properly developed”“your child can thrive both in school and in life.

Remediation Re-Enforces Bad Brain Connections

The problem with many reading and learning programs is that they do not address or resolve the underlying reasons for poor processing in the brain. Traditional remedial learning and reading methods simply teach around issues and create strategies to manage a disorder rather than correcting the source of the problem. Unfortunately, remedial programs may at times cause more damage by re-enforcing “˜faulty’ connections.

The answer to improving your child’s abilities is not always “˜more practice’. Certainly practice makes perfect when the right connections are in place. Rigorous, rote learning may not only strengthen the wrong connections but it often leads to mental exhaustion, lack of motivation and even potential failure. When the right connections are in place learning takes place more naturally and confidence and motivation soars.
