A Season for Learning
Winter Break can provide some much-needed fun, festivities, and family bonding. It’s also the perfect time to maintain learning momentum, tackle an assignment with help, or get some support with a challenging subject. Plus, when you come in for instruction during winter break, we have a gift book for you!
If school is not always easy for your child, you may have mixed feelings about using winter break for learning. While we all look forward to rest and relaxation, parents of struggling students have to consider the effect that time off from learning may have.
Our instruction is individualized to meet the needs of each student. For students who are having a hard time keeping up with reading, comprehension, or math, the Winter Break is an excellent way to jump-start a new or ongoing intensive instruction plan—an opportunity to develop skills that will make school easier.
For example, students can attend an enrichment program to advance in an area like writing, study skills, and test taking. Alumni students might attend for help applying their skills to a new task, like story problems or reading fluency.

Build the Imagery-Language Connection at Lindamood-Bell
Students who are struggling in school may have a weakness that is affecting learning. Unfortunately, these students typically fall further behind as the year goes on. Students with poor comprehension, critical thinking, writing, and memory may have weak concept imagery—the ability to create an imaged gestalt (whole) from language; students who are poor decoders and spellers, or slow readers, may have weak symbol imagery—the ability to visualize letters in words. These difficulties are not only frustrating for a student, but prevent them from accessing school curriculum.
Our unique imagery-language instruction can make a difference. Students can make years of progress in just a few weeks and continue during the school year—either online or at the learning center.
