Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, internationally renowned for educational programs and research, has pioneered instructional models to develop the sensory-cognitive processes that underlie reading, spelling, comprehension, critical thinking, and math. Lindamood-Bell® Learning Centers provide one-on-one instruction using our groundbreaking instructional methods; Lindamood-Bell®Professional Development offers workshops for educators, and also provides a comprehensive school/district-wide model to develop language and literacy skills.
Lindamood-Bell® Learning Centers provide individualized instruction for children and adults, ranging from severely learning disabled to academically gifted. In our centers we often see children and adults previously diagnosed with various disorders or learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, hyperlexia, ADD, ADHD, CAPD, Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Delay, etc. Lindamood-Bell’s instruction is always based on a thorough and comprehensive diagnostic evaluation which measures oral vocabulary, oral language, comprehension, visual memory, oral directions, phonemic awareness, word attack, work recognition, reading comprehension, spelling, and math. After intensive instruction at a Lindamood-Bell® Learning Center, a student can make reading gains of two to four year in as little as six to eight weeks.
