A Neuro-Scientific Program That Uses The Principles of Brain Plasticity To Correct Reading Deficits at the Source – The Only Technology that Bonds the Auditory to Visual Pathways
Chances are if you’re reading this it is because either you or your child struggle with reading. Having a family history of dyslexia and being a struggling reader myself as a child, I know personally how disheartening and how much confidence plummets when one can’t do what everyone else seems to be doing with such ease.
The struggling reader feels ashamed, isolated, defective and all to often—they feel stupid. For children, it is a shame that they carry around like a scarlet letter. For adults, it is often a ‘dark secret’ that only their closest friends and family know about. This is why I am so excited about the Cellfield Reading Program. As an elementary school teacher, I have seen some great reading programs, but so many of them still fail struggling readers. When I saw the undeniable results of the Cellfield Reading Program I knew I had to become a certified Cellfield Reading Provider.
THE CELLFIELD READING PROGRAM IS DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER REMEDIAL READING PROGRAMS
Cellfield is unlike any reading program available because it is the only reading program which literally rewires the dyslexic brain by creating new neural connections that are responsible for proper reading. It is based on the principles of brain plasticity (the capacity of the brain to change when stimulated in the right way). This includes comprehension and also enhances the major sensory functions that are critical to reading.
Brain imaging research shows that poor readers have fewer reading brain circuits and in the wrong places. This makes reading laborious and too slow for good comprehension. The problem is that regular remedial reading programs might work for a person who needs a little more re-enforcement in reading as opposed to dyslexia in which the individual reads from an entirely different area of the brain.
CELLFIELD CHANGES THE BRAIN
A brain plasticity program is therefore required to shape neurological changes so that the reader is no longer reading from Broca’s area of the brain and instead reading from the Parieto-Temporal and Occipito-Temporal area. Brain imaging has shown that typical readers use the left side of their brains in an interconnected and highly efficient way, whereas poor readers use both sides of their brains in a disconnected and inefficient way.
Cellfield is a scientific brain plasticity based intervention conducted over three months which uses a combination of moving graphics, sound parcels and coloured and patched lenses. Cellfield synchronizes information directly where it is needed, training the brain to use more efficient pathways while freeing up working memory so that laborious reading can become more automatized and effortless.
- Cellfield integrates the parts of the brain required for efficient reading
- Cellfield develops and strengthens the left hemisphere brain activity, which good readers use when reading
- Cellfield enables reading to become more automatic, increasing both fluency and comprehension.
- Cellfield delivers results in just weeks.
Cellfield participants on average improve ONE to TWO years in reading skills in just 14 days. There is no other reading program which can consistently who the same results in such a short time.
THE BENEFITS OF CELLFIELD
- Improved Auditory Processing Speed – With motion graphics, moving masks, colour & orthoptic correction
- Improved Visual Processing Speed – Uses progressive accoustically modified target words in rhymes
- Bond Auditory and Visual Functions – Simultaneous auditory, visual and orthographic remediations
- Increased Working Memory Capacity – Simultaneous orthographic/auditory eye/ hand coordination demands with embedded text, Pidgin English & advanced mosaics
- Improved Eye Movement Control – Extreme demands on eye movement due to opague moving graphics which become moving masks and the use of corrective lenses as needed
- Improved Attention – Motion graphics, tight time-outs with multi-sensory tasks & scoring systems
- Improved Motivation – Through built in novelty from a radically new approach, a scoring system, and experiencing success for the first time
- Synchronizes data arriving at the left hemisphere – The simultaneous orthographic/auditory, semantic and motor function shift the right hemisphere activity to the left hemisphere activity where the language centers are found.
This is an intensive 12 week reading intervention which includes:
- Initial reading assessment
- 10 daily clinic based computer sessions and home activities over two weeks
- 2 further reading assessments to monitor progress
- Final written report
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Research on the Cellfield Program has found a high applicability for individuals ages 6 and up with reading difficulties. By grade 3 children are usually expected to be reading to learn, rather than learning to read, but reading remains difficult for up to 30% of people.
Cellfield is helpful for individuals who meet the following criterion:
- Their reading age has reached a plateau and they fall further behind their peers each year.
- They have been diagnosed with dyslexia or a learning disorder.
- They have difficulty carrying out oral instructions.
- They have poor reading, spelling or writing skills.
- They have good reading skills but can’t recall what they read.
- Their reading skills are normal but they feel discomfort or suffer from fatigue when reading.
- They have poor working memory.
- They feel uncomfortable looking at black letters on white paper, or white letters on a blackboard.
- They have eye movement control problems.
