PATH therapy has been designed as a computer-based CD-ROM game that improves learning ability and attention span in school, enhances the desire to read, raises self-esteem and significantly improves general behavior.

Controlled clinical studies with over 900 students in public elementary schools, funded by the National Institutes of Health and Perception Dynamics Institute (Lawton, 2004, 2007a, 2007b), found that PATH training twice a week for fifteen weeks
increased reading speed two to four fold
, and improved comprehension, word identification, and spelling by
1 to 3 grade levels
.

HOW CAN I TAKE MY CHILD DOWN THE PATH TO READING?

PATH to Reading therapy is available in different ways
(see ABOUT US to learn more):

  • At home vision therapy sessions administered by us
    in the San Diego and Los Angeles area.
    (2 half hours per week for 12 weeks)
  • Scheduled training sessions for administering the
    PATH therapy in your own home.
    (Half hour sessions 2 times a week for 12 weeks).
  • Scheduled training sessions at certified locations such as local optometry vision therapy and learning/reading centers.
    (Half hour sessions 2 times a week for 12 weeks).

PATH To Reading was developed by Dr. Teri Lawton, a neurobiologist who has studied visual perception for over 30 years. Her research shows that the core deficiency of many poor readers is an impaired visual ability to discriminate the direction of motion, which results in spatial and temporal sequencing problems caused by neural timing deficits.
