PATH to Reading/Insight was created by Dr. Teri Lawton who has over 40 years of experience as a neurobiologist. Dr. Teri Lawton is the founder, CEO, and Director of Research at Perception Dynamics Institute (PDI). Dr. Lawton completed a postdoc from Caltech in Pasadena, CA, a PhD from UC Santa Barbra, and a BS in Mathematics and Psychology from the University of Michigan. Her research and studies have been to investigate reading and attention problems in both young children and older adults. Click here to see Dr. Lawton’s key publications
PATH was developed for Dr. Lawton’s PhD thesis, as a research tool, but she soon discovered the effectiveness of PATH as a cognitive therapy. Dr. Lawton first discovered that PATH could treat cognitive functioning after suffering a severe concussion at age 25, which caused her to have to learn to walk and talk again. She was told recovery would take 14 years, but within 11 months she was able to pass her PhD qualifying exams after using PATH as a therapy to help heal after brain injury. Many years later, Dr. Lawton discovered PATH’s ability to treat dyslexia when her 5-year-old daughter started to do PATH. Her daughter was the lowest reader in in her kindergarten class, but by first grade she was the best reader in the class.
If you or a family member has not been personally affected by learning or attention challenges, it is likely you know someone who has. Thirty- two million students in the U.S. do not read proficiently or have learning or attention challenges. Many of these conditions are caused by untreated dyslexia or similar brain networking issues. Currently, there are no proven solutions that free students from their slow and tortured reading and learning pace. That’s one of the reasons Perception Dynamics Institute (PDI) developed the PATH to Reading brain-training system.
Over the last 20 years working with people who struggle with reading and cognitive skills, Dr. Lawton has been conducting studies and working with patients and students perfecting PATH to dramatically improve visual and cognitive skills for both those with learning problems and those who had a concussion.
