Designed by Dimitri Caplygin, Australia.

Peer-reviewed & Published Research which provides the proof that it works.

Australian Journal of Learning Disabilities Vol. 10 – No.2, 2005

  • 30% of ALL children have Visual Problems possibly affecting Reading, Learning and Attention
  • In NZ that represents 200,000 kiwi school children !
  • 80% of children with Reading, Learning, Attention Issues or just 'not achieving to potential' have Visual Problems!
  • Many children have undiagnosed Visual Perceptual problems.
  • They are not processing information in the same way as ordinary readers.
  • Their learning pathways are not efficient for the task of reading as taught in schools.
  • Repetitive reading practice only further locks them into their unfortunate ways of processing

Cellfield builds new neural pathways in the brain.

  • This benefits children from 8 years and above
  • It induces attention, expands working memory and provides novelty with reward
  • It reduces overload in just two weeks, so that the child doesn't have to work so hard in future
  • It gives average gains of almost two years in the ability of children to decode unfamiliar words

Cellfield consists of

                 Phase 1  Cellfield Intervention  
Cellfield Pre-Test & Report    (1½ hrs) $    350  

Intervention x10 sessions (1¼ hrs) over 2 weeks
                   (typically the school holidays)

$ 2,150  
      Cellfield Post-Test  (½ hr)

          Price $ 2,500
  Phase 2   Post-Intervention

Success Rate is about 80% in phonological awareness, passage comprehension, reading accuracy and reading comprehension, immediately after the post treatment assessment. Eye movement control success rate is even higher.

If warranted Cellfield can be repeated at higher levels of challenge, the best gains are achieved on 3rd run
