Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes’ Position Statement Regarding Third Party Workshops and Clinics
We, the owners and officers of Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, have authored programs to develop language and literacy skills. We have also created Lindamood-Bell Learning Centers, where we help individuals learn to their potential. The success of our programs has fostered a growing number of third party workshops and clinics in our programs, especially for Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) and Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®).
We have begun to receive an increasing number of calls and letters from persons who thought they had registered for a workshop or clinic offered by Lindamood-Bell, but in fact,they had registered for a workshop or clinic offered by someone who has no affiliation with Lindamood-Bell.
Just because a party is utilizing our copyrighted materials, or offering by name the programs they describe, does not mean you are receiving services from Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, on behalf of the originators and developers of the programs.
Although third parties are allowed to use and offer to train others in the Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) and Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) programs, Lindamood-Bell, does not endorse third party workshops or clinics because we cannot control or guarantee the quality of these workshops or clinics.
Please contact us at 800-233-1819 before attending a workshop or clinic if you wish to confirm that the workshop or clinic is offered by Lindamood-Bell.
We want students to achieve their full learning potential through instruction in our programs. This is why we exist. Unless you attend a workshop or clinic presented by us, we cannot guarantee the content, objectives, and quality of the workshop or clinic you might receive. For these reasons, we encourage you to attend workshops and clinics presented by Lindamood-Bell.
Lindamood-Bell requires that all employees complete a criminal background check.
