A Prescription for Success | Your Learning Checkup
When it comes to physical health and making sure your child feels their best, there are lots of steps we routinely take — from immunisations and teeth cleanings to general conversations with the pediatrician about your child’s health and wellness.
Similarly, a learning checkup can provide vital information about how things are going for your child at school. By the time you receive your child’s report card, he has already spent months in the classroom — and sometimes, that means he has spent those months trying to keep up.
Grades may set off warning bells that your child is struggling, but they won’t tell you why he’s struggling or what you can do to help.
“It’s like getting a fingerprint of your child’s unique learning profile…”
The Lindamood-Bell Comprehensive Learning Evaluation includes:
- Assessment of reading and comprehension
- Identification of strengths and weaknesses
- Consultation to review results with a learning expert
- An individualised learning plan
- Annual learning checkups
While reading tutors or small group support in the classroom can help a student struggling with a particular concept, Lindamood-Bell focuses on establishing the imagery-language connection for reading, which gets to the root of the issue and can change learning for life.
Some students come to us with a diagnosis of dyslexia or autism spectrum disorder while others come to us just to make learning easier. Learn how our research-validated instruction makes a difference for all of our students. Our approach allows students to establish independence and self-correction in learning.
