CAPD: Central Auditory Processing Disorder
On average, students with CAPD who received Seeing Stars instruction achieved significant improvements in reading. They made large standard score changes on nearly all measures. Additionally, the 29-point percentile increase in word attack put these students well 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 CAPD, 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, 68 students with previous third-party diagnoses of Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) received an average of 116 hours of Lindamood-Bell instruction (primarily Seeing Stars instruction to develop symbol imagery for improved reading). Instruction was delivered by specially trained Lindamood-Bell staff.
