Learning with Results: A Process-Based Approach
Many children and adults struggle with problems related to reading, spelling, and language comprehension. Factor in diagnoses like dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, auditory processing disorder, hyperlexia, and autism spectrum disorders, and it can be difficult to know where to turn for the right educational assistance.
With over 25 years of experience, Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes offers solutions for many learning difficulties. Our research-validated instruction addresses the global learning needs of all individuals. Our unique instructional programs are not age, year, or performance specific; we see students of all levels and ages, including adults. We have over 50 permanent Learning Centers and over 40 seasonal Learning Clinics across the US, UK, and Australia.
Lindamood-Bell® instruction develops and strengthens the sensory-cognitive functions of phonemic awareness, symbol imagery, and concept imagery. A weakness in one of these functions can cause reading, spelling, and comprehension difficulties, and will interfere with a student’s ability to learn.
Our unique instruction and one-to-one setting allows for great growth, and the environment nurtures each student’s self-esteem and confidence. It is our goal that all of our students become independent, self-correcting learners in all aspects of their lives.
In order to provide the appropriate instruction for each individual, a learning profile must be established—this is accomplished with a comprehensive battery of assessments. This learning evaluation is analyzed and a consultation is then held to explain the individual’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as a plan for instruction. Each instructional plan is tailored to the specific learning needs of the individual and embodies an interactive, balanced approach.
The intensity of our instruction is a notable difference between Lindamood-Bell and other tutoring services that provide learning assistance. Lindamood-Bell recommends intensive instruction, which consists of approximately two to four hours per day, five days per week. Our average results with intensive instruction may see two to three years’ growth in as little as six to eight weeks.
The majority of Lindamood-Bell’s students are between the ages of 7-14, but because their unique instructional program is not age, year, or performance specific, they see students of all levels and ages, including adults. #
