The Stirling Cellfield Centre is the first centre in the UK to offer the innovative Cellfield Intervention, a treatment for dyslexia and other reading and language difficulties. It was pioneered in Australia by Dimitri Caplygin and, owing to the success of the intervention, is gradually being adopted more widely throughout the world.
Fiona Macdiarmid runs the Stirling Cellfield Centre, which runs out of the Kip McGrath Education Centre in Stirling which she opened in January 2003, following a career in mainstream primary education. Fiona and her team have been delivering the Cellfield Intervention since 2009 and, to date, has helped nearly 100 children and adults achieve great gains in their reading and language skills. In addition to improvements in language processing, we have also seen a range of changes in behaviour and confidence which have had a positive impact on many aspects of our clients’ lives.
Fiona holds a Bachelor of Education Degree (including an elective degree component in Reading and Literacy) and a Special Qualification in Early Education and has worked at all levels of primary education, starting as a class teacher and progressing through to being a Headteacher, a post she held for five years.
There are a number of interventions which help address reading disorders but Cellfield is the world’s first intervention to address inefficient neural wiring by inducing increased left brain activity. Fiona underwent training in New Zealand in early 2009 and now hold the license to deliver Cellfield in Scotland.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Stirling Cellfield Centre.
