Cellfield Reading Intervention


Cellfield is a revolutionary reading program designed to create neural connections in the brain that are responsible for proper reading including comprehension and will enhance major sensory functions critical to reading.

How Do you Measure Results?

We use Industry standard tests (e.g: GORT and Woodcock) BEFORE and AFTER Cellfield to measure student outcomes

Cellfield is Unique

Cellfield targets visual and auditory processing


Auditory

Specially designed sound parcels target auditory processing

Auditory to Visual Bridge

Cellfield is the only technology that bonds auditory to visual pathways, which allows the struggling reader’s brain to function more like a typical reader

Visual

Unique motion graphics and coloured and patched lenses target visual processing

Cellfield achieves outstanding results

Cellfield on average improves reading skills by ONE to TWO years.*


This represents an accelerated gain of 23 months or an advance of two entire grade levels for the duration of treatment. Given that over half the participants took two weeks or less to complete the ten sessions and two thirds of participants completed them in less than one month, this is indeed an extraordinary result.*
