Your Partner in Education
Every summer, our intensive instruction results in extraordinary gains for students in just a few weeks. Spending part of a summer with us can be one of the most positive learning experiences of a child’s life. So it’s important to us that that the Lindamood-Bell Learning Center experience doesn’t stop on a student’s last day! We help families successfully navigate their child’s educational journey, all year long.
Continuing the Magic of Learning
As a partner in each of our students’ education, we provide opportunities to build on the success they experienced at our learning center.
✔ Collaboration with school, physician, or team
Parents often request that evaluation results be communicated with other professionals on a child’s team; collaborating with a student’s team, in this way can be key to a great transition back to school.
✔ Parent workshops
Personalized Tips for Home sessions – parents learn how to reinforce new skills
Imagine a Better School Year events throughout the year – topics include:
■ How to help your child understand and record assignments
■ Asking questions that create mental images (and boost comprehension!)
■ Using the imagery-language connection for remembering facts for tests
■ Tips for managing homework when decoding is an issue
■ The imagery-language connection for writing
✔ School year checkup
Students return for an updated Learning Ability Evaluation. We are pleased to provide this valuable information at no cost.
✔ After school instruction
Application to Content
Tailored to individual needs, we offer a bridge between new skills and current school work. For example, a student who received comprehension instruction may benefit from assistance when applying his new skills to a book report.
Homework Matters is supervised homework help, 1-4 afternoons per week. We can answer your child’s questions and assist when necessary. We help motivate and focus students on getting their homework done. Our skilled instructors take the struggle out of homework for families.
✔ School break intensive boosts
Students use breaks to boost skills (and often can earn free instruction). For example, students can attend for an enrichment program to advance in an area like writing or study skills. Alumni students might attend for help applying their skills to a new task(for example: story problems or reading fluency). Students who are currently struggling with reading, comprehension or math can use their school break to jump start a new or ongoing intensive instruction plan. Breaks are an opportunity to focus on the skills that will make school easier.
Alumni families, please get in touch with the Learning Center to schedule your school year support. We look forward to partnering with you to make this year great for your student.
New to Lindamood-Bell?
If school is hard for your child, you need to know why and that there is help. To date, we have helped more than 30,000 individuals learn to their potential. Identifying strengths and weaknesses is the first step toward helping a child. A learning evaluation will uncover the strengths and weaknesses that are affecting school. In a thorough results consultation, we will discuss an individualized learning plan to make school easier.
Some students come to us with a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, or a general learning challenge—and we make a difference for each of them. Some students seek our help to enhance their skills or to just make learning easier—and we do.
