On Cloud Nine® Math Program
Visualizing & Verbalizing for Math

Nanci Bell, co-founder of Lindamood-Bell

and Kimberly Tuley

Mathematics is cognitive processing, thinking, that requires the dual coding of imagery and language. Imagery is fundamental to the process of thinking with numbers.

Our Results

Students who received On Cloud Nine® Math instruction achieved significant improvements in math.

A REAL DIFFERENCE

A few weeks can change learning Math—for life!

Nicole has difficulty remembering math facts and she struggles with computation. She is overwhelmed by word problems and understanding new math concepts. She has been labeled with “dyscalculia” (a mathematics disorder).

cause
2

A primary cause of math difficulties is an inability to create a gestalt image for the concepts underlying math processes. Individuals often attempt to memorize facts instead of being able to think, reason, and problem solve with numbers.

SYMPTOMS
3

Individuals of all ages may experience an inability to image the concepts underlying math processes.

This causes weakness in:

  • Learning math family facts
  • Grasping mathematical relationships
  • Following proper mathematical operations
  • Solving word problems
  • Estimating numerical values
  • Understanding higher level math
SOLUTION
4

The On Cloud Nine® Math Program stimulates the ability to image and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes. Concept and numerical imagery are integrated with language and applied to math computation and problem solving. There is emphasis on both mathematical reasoning and mathematical computation. Individuals of all ages learn to do and enjoy math.

  • Students in my classroom have gone through the program…amazing differences. Students now have confidence in their math. One student who avoided work as much as possible before is now at a B+.

  • My Seven weeks at Lindamood-Bell have changed my life. In the past I found that when I was given five or six oral directions at once that it was very difficult for me to keep them all straight. Now I have learned to make images in my mind of each oral direction and I am now able to hold five or six directions easily. I am also pleased about the improvement in my math skills. I feel tremendous anger at not receiving this type of learning when I was a little girl.

Who can we help?

We work with children and adults of all ages and levels.

Some students come to us with general learning challenges or a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia or autism spectrum disorder.

Some students come to us to enhance their skills or to just make learning easier.
