ADHD: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
On average, students with ADHD who received Seeing Stars instruction achieved significant improvements in reading. They made large standard score changes on nearly all measures. Additionally, the 27-point percentile increase in phonemic awareness put these students within the normal range (25th–75th percentile). Their pre- to posttest results were statistically significant on all measures. The results of this study illustrate that, for students with ADHD, Lindamood-Bell instruction in the Seeing Stars program leads to improved reading, which is essential to achieving success with school curricula.
Student gains were measured with a battery of reading assessments.
Lindamood-Bell Learning Centers provide research-validated, one-to-one instruction to improve reading, comprehension, and math for students of all ages. In 2013, 200 students with previous third-party diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) received an average of 107 hours of Seeing Stars instruction to develop symbol imagery for improved reading. Instruction was delivered by specially trained Lindamood-Bell staff.
