Cellfield

Cellfield is a unique approach for reading disorders. It is a computer-based program based on what is known to be the best practice in reading intervention.

  • Suitable for all types of reading disorders and difficulties
  • Ideal for adolescents – the older the student the bigger the gain they can make
  • Continued accelerated rate of learning in literacy development after Cellfield
  • Fast results – two week intensive Phase 1 program
  • Follow up weekly sessions for 8 weeks for Phase 2 of the program

What is Cellfield?

Cellfield is a computer-based intervention designed around what actually happens in a reading brain. Essentially, it uses computer science to rewire the brain in just two weeks.

Reading fluently with good comprehension needs many things to happen quickly.  Cellfield uses brain plasticity and computer science to synchronise information to enable the student to recognise words in peripheral vision and have spare processing capacity in working memory to think about meaning.

Who is the program suited to?

Cellfield is ideal for adolescents and can be started as young as 8 years of age.  The Cellfield program is appealing to an adolescent in terms of both the technology used and the novel approach to intervention.

Studies have shown that, in general, the older the student the bigger gain they can make, with significant gains being made in a short period of time.

Follow up assessment shows that they continue with this accelerated rate of learning in their learning development even after Cellfield is completed.

Program details:

The Cellfield program is a two-week daily intervention program (Phase 1).  For convenience, many families choose to do the program over the school holidays, but the Program is run all year round.

Phase 2 of the program is designed to consolidate and put into practice what has been learnt in Phase 1. The Phase 2 follow up sessions include 10 group sessions or 8 individual sessions, run weekly, following Phase 1 completion.

Program structure:

  • Pre-program assessment session 75-90 minutes
  • Phase I sessions 10 x 75 minute daily sessions (2 weeks)
  • Post phase I assessment 75-90 minutes
  • Phase II sessions 8 x 30 minute weekly session (8 weeks)
  • Post-phase II assessment 75-90 minutes
  • Post-program report and feedback session
