Cellfield UK Case Studies

Case Study 1

Hannah came to Cellfield when she was 16 and struggling to cope with studying for her exams. Her self‑esteem was low and she was experiencing difficulty processing all the information necessary to achieve the grades she needed. Following consultation with Fiona at the Stirling Centre, Hannah discovered she was dyslexic and undertook the Cellfield programme. Hannah actually did Cellfield twice because she felt she had benefitted so much the first time. Now at University, Hannah believes Cellfield changed her life: “it had a huge impact on me. It made a big difference to my academic studies and also my day to day life”. Before doing Cellfield Hannah found it very difficult to read and told us that words looked like “car registration plates” because it was so difficult for her to make sense of them. Now she is able to decode and break down words more easily which has led to huge improvements in her reading fluency. Hannah is a great example of how Cellfield changes lives.

Case Study 2

Matthew was 7 when he did Cellfield at our Stirling centre. He felt it really helped him: "Everyone at Cellfield was so positive and helpful" he says and things changed for him as his reading improved. In fact, halfway through doing Cellfield he noticed he was holding his pencil better and then his handwriting improved too. "Cellfield gave me confidence and strength" he says, "I loved doing it and I think it changed my life".

Case Study 3

Andrew was the first UK Cellfield client when he was 11 years old and he repeated it when he was 12 and again when he was 15. After the first time Andrew read a book cover to cover for the very first time - a huge achievement for him! Each time he completed Cellfield he made gains in his reading age and, after the third time he felt it had a big impact on him; in addition to gains in reading, his handwriting improved and his organisational skills also benefitted. Now in further education, Andrew did well in his exams and his extracurriculum activities: "I believe Cellfield helped contribute towards all I have achieved in my life so far and would highly recommend it to other dyslexic people"
