The dual route to reading

Beginner readers use a different part of the brain to learn to read than skilled readers do when processing text. Beginner readers use the parieto-temporal area of the brain to learn to read. When learning to read, students have to decode and identify each word individually, which causes them to read slowly, one-word-at-a-time. On the other hand, experienced readers use different neural pathways to read: the occipto-temporal area of the brain. Skilled readers have automatised all the basic skills needed for reading, and can go directly from what their eyes see to meaning.

This is the epicenter of the Cellfield philosophy. Those readers who get stuck at the parieto-temporal stage, are stuck for neural reasons and will never be able to read fluently. Their working memories are permanently overloaded with lower order skills that they just can’t automatise. And thus, they can’t make the transition to becoming a skilled reader. Cellfield has been developed to help these readers create new neural pathways and transition to becoming skilled readers.

What Cellfield does:

Improve auditory processing speed

Uses progressive acoustically modified target words in rhymes.

Improve visual processing speed

With motion graphics, moving masks, colour & orthoptic correction.

Bond auditory and visual functions

Simultaneous orthographic/auditory eye/hand coordination demands with embedded text, Pidgin English & advanced mosaics.

Improve attention

Motion graphics, tight time-outs with multi-sensory tasks & scoring system.

Improve motivation

Through built in novelty from a radically new approach, a scoring system, and experiencing success for the first time.

Improve eye movement control

Extreme demands on eye movement due to opaque moving graphics which become moving masks and the use of corrective lenses as needed.

Synchronise data arriving at the left hemisphere

The simultaneous orthographic/auditor, semantic and motor function shift the right hemisphere activity to the left hemisphere activity where the language centres are.

Having key functions in close proximity allows synchronisation and more efficient interconnections.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
