Cellfield – A Reading Intervention
Cellfield is a revolutionary program that is designed based on theories of neural plasticity with a focus of integrating the visual and auditory pathways. Designed initially as a reading intervention for students with dyslexia, Cellfield has been successful in supporting people with difficulties in visual processing, auditory processing, executive function, attention, working memory and ocularmotor delays.
Cellfield is a two part program:
Phase 1: 10 days of a computer-based brain training followed up
Phase 2: 10 weekly (1 hour) sessions of specialized reading instruction*
Cellfield clients have improved in reading fluency by an average of two grade levels
after completing the program.
(Measured by standardized reading assessments.)
