Overcoming dyslexia has been considered close to impossible. However, Cellfield's program has helped many in overcoming dyslexia.
How Does Cellfield Work?
In the last ten years, brain imaging technology has made it possible to see brains working while a child is reading.
Normal readers use their left half of their brain in a compact, interconnected and highly efficient way.
Poor readers use both sides of their brains in a disconnected and highly inefficient way.
In early stages of reading, none of this matters much.
In later stages of reading, it matters much... very much.
Reading fluently with good comprehension needs many things to happen very quickly.
Our eyes need to see words coming in peripheral vision before we actually look at them.
Seeing always comes first. Sound structure needs to follow almost instantaneously.
By the time words come into central vision, fluent readers already understand what they are reading.
They use high-speed scanning for checking, not reading.
Cellfield uses brain plasticity and clever computer science to synchronize information and deliver it directly where it is needed, quickly and efficiently.
Only then can children recognize words in peripheral vision, and have spare processing capacity in working memory to think about meaning.
It is this increased processing capacity that makes it possible for Cellfield children to make the transition into fluent reading.
