The Workshop Reading Centre

2009-02-23 11:09

Is your child reading at his age appropriate level? We do assessments and all reading remediation including the revolutionary Cellfield Reading Treatment What is so different about the Cellfield? Cellfield targets a learning disability that applies specifically to reading. Advanced brain scanning has shown that reading disabilities have causes that include not only the auditory/language processing areas of the brain, but also the visual processing areas, in particular, the bridging areas in between. Cellfield is a treatment, because it targets the ability to learn how to read. Those who had undertaken the Cellfield treatment, usually experience a ?step-increase? in their reading skills and continue to improve faster than what they could before the Cellfield treatment. Scientific evaluations have shown improvements of up to 12 months in Comprehension skills, and 23 months in decoding ability in the 2 week treatment. Cellfield treatment is available in Roodepoort, Randburg, Bedfordview, and soon in Fourways. Sublicensing of the Cellfield treatment is available to organisations or individuals already involved in providing professional support for reading difficulties or educational services. Please contact us for more information. We also stock the Earobics range of Home Software for improvements in Auditory processing, Concentration and Phonological awareness skills. Don't let a reading problem become a learning problem.
