My child has dyslexia, how can Cellfield help?
In-depth reading assessments are done before and after the programme as well as 6 months later which allows us to monitor and track the progress made.
The assessments we use are part of the Woodcock Reading Mastery Series of tests, which are widely-used University standard tests. We also use the Gray Oral Reading Test, The Helen Arkell Spelling Test, the Pearson Dyslexia (Nicolson/Fawcett) Screening Test.

Phase 1 is a computer-based, multi-sensory treatment programme carried out in one-hour sessions over 10 days, in a 2-week block. During each daily 1-hour session, clients wear headphones and sometimes special Cellfield glasses.

Using the computer mouse, they respond to audio and visual prompts. By bonding the visual, auditory and motor functions in the brain, the Cellfield programme develops and strengthens left hemisphere brain activity. This enables reading to become more automatic and comprehension and fluency to increase. The treatment programme is delivered by university-trained professionals at our bespoke centre in Shenfield, Essex.
After completing the ten sessions at the centre, clients embark on phase 2 of Cellfield, which is vital to reinforce and develop the skills acquired during the first phase of treatment. This is 10 weeks of planned reading (oral and silent) at home or the centre. Full information is provided by the Cellfield centre and support is always available.
