Following a serious head trauma that severely compromised her reading and writing skills, three years of traditional rehabilitation and vision therapy only produced marginal improvements for 18 year-old Chelsea Ellwood. Chelsea was then introduced to Perception Attention Therapy (PATH).
After only 11 weeks of treatment, PATH therapy permanently improved Chelsea’s ability to read, concentrate, pay attention in class and follow instructions. Her reading speed improved from 434 words per minute (wpm) to 1542 wpm and she no longer suffered from headaches.
“PATH therapy seemed to help heal my brain quickly,” she recalls. “I feel I can read much better now than before the accident. I can read much faster and understand what I’m reading much more easily.” Not only has Chelsea successfully graduated from Mira Mesa High School but she will be attending Springfield College, Massachusetts in the fall.
After witnessing her daughters remarkable recovery, Chelsea’s mother, a 7th grade mathematics teacher, now recommends PATH therapy for students who have difficulties reading and retaining information. “Both elementary and high school children can permanently improve their skills with Perception Attention Therapy (PATH). I recommend PATH therapy for many of my students. I believe that low achieving students would greatly benefit. My daughter used PATH therapy and it made a huge difference in her life. This is a wonderful treatment.”

“I have improved over 10-fold in my cognitive processing skills, including multi-tasking, focusing attention, memory, and sequential processing after a severe Traumatic Brain Injury [at 58 years old].”

“ After a severe Traumatic Brain Injury 33 years ago and recently completing the PATH neurotraining program, I have noticed more mental flexibility. I have more of an ability to stop what I am working on without a fear that I will lose my momentum or forget what I was working on when I return. I can synthesize and process information better, engage in complex conversations and follow them, gain insights, and pick up the salient points. I spend less time after meetings to recount the main points and consider the next steps. I did neurofeedback about 16 years ago. For me, it was pretty good but it didn’t offer step change improvements like I am seeing with PATH.
I’ve noticed improvements with working memory which has helped with holding conversations -being able to make my point more clearly. It has also helped me to feel more calm in general because I am less anxious about trying to remember things and less upset that I am not remembering; it’s helped with information processing; and with music as well. With music, I notice being better able to sing and play guitar at the same time, which requires strumming a pattern while singing. That has been very hard for me and this made it easier. I also notice I am better at playing, because I can plan ahead for the notes I will be playing. Additionally, I am finding it easier to learn the different scales across the guitar. I have been dabbling with guitar for a long time and have had major difficulties getting a grasp on playing improvisational guitar and knowing which notes to play to match the chords that someone else is playing. Since using PATH, I have really been able to spring forward with this [at 55 years old].”

“We had to go out of town with very little notice for a funeral last month. My husband’s family is very, very formal, so lots of last minute planning and shopping for all 4 of us to have the “correct” attire for 3 different functions each over the weekend, and all done in a massive rush. I couldn’t believe how easy planning, packing, shopping and organizing all the details was. For the first time in my life I had everyone ready an entire day ahead of schedule and had the easiest time staying organized during our travel, even with all the moving pieces and constant changes. I know this was a direct result of Path training, because I’m a travel bug, and my whole life I’ve had the hardest time organizing for and staying organized on trips. This time it was easy peasy.”

“I experienced a concussion as a result of first a bicycle accident, and then a car accident 40 years later (at age 64). The first time I was told by my neurologist it would be a minimum of 14 years until I could take the Qualifying Exams for my Doctorate at UCSB. Fortunately, after PATH neurotraining, I was able to pass these exams 11 months later. This rapid improvement, transitioning from learning to talk and walk again to high-level cognitive skills requiring critical thinking and analysis was completed in less than 11 months.
After my car was totaled I had a concussion that reduced my visual and cognitive skills. I soon discovered that there was no cognitive therapy available from local neurologists to remediate my lost visual and cognitive skills. Since doing PATH neurotraining, I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my ability to direct attention, multitask, remember, and do critical thinking, that was only possible after being trained on the PATH cognitive therapy. I found it best to space out the training sessions, completing one session (5-10 minutes) each morning after breakfast and before reading and answering my email. If I was too tired, my body taking much time to recover from such a severe shock, I postponed doing PATH neurotraining until the next day, since it is best done in the morning, and instead got much needed sleep to recover as quickly as possible.
Fortunately after only 2 months, my cognitive skills were remediated. The concussion caused my memory to be reduced to 50%, attention: 55%, and processing speed: 37%. After 8 weeks of PATH training, memory improved to 99%, attention: 96%, and processing speed: 95%. PATH neurotraining not only provides a good brain tune-up so tasks can be done more automatically, it improves attention, processing speed, reading fluency, multitasking and memory quickly and effectively.”

“What makes Dr. Lawton’s product so valuable is that she is offering the only treatment which directly addresses disordered magno-cellular/ parvo-cellular interactions.”

“Gavin was diagnosed with Post Concussion Syndrome following his accident and was having issues dealing with various things such as aggression, memory and being able to focus. I have seen a significant difference in Gavin’s behavior, memory and focus. I feel that this program has impacted Gavin’s recovery significantly, as he feels as well. Now he is able to focus and multitask more effectively, no longer being frustrated, being much more in control. Gavin’s improvements have accelerated significantly in many areas and I believe it can only be attributed to completing the PATH neurotraining. “

“Only PATH neurotraining caused me to improve in cognitive speed, attentiveness, and short-term memory after a severe concussion and stroke. PATH neurotraining is a program that works and should be used by others with concussions.”
