Summer learning at Lindamood-Bell is personalized to meet the learning needs of each student in a short amount of time. Because it’s one-to-one, we’ll only spend time on what your child needs.
We’ll start with a learning evaluation to uncover the strengths and weaknesses that affect academic performance. In a results consultation, we will recommend a summer learning plan that will make a difference in your child’s success.
How could your child excel this summer? Read on for typical areas of focus.
Strong readers recognize common words and can sound out unfamiliar words easily. This makes reading at grade level or above easy and smooth.
Students struggling can learn to read to their full potential this summer. We identify why reading is hard for each student individually and focus on developing the skills they need to become a better reader. Learn about our renowned approach.
A few weeks at our Learning Center can make a big difference if your child is still learning to read. Emerging readers can work on the basics to make the transition to kindergarten or first grade a breeze. We strengthen the imagery-language foundation for reading, spelling, and comprehension. Learn about how we help young learners here.
Do words “go in one ear and out the other” for your child? This is more common than you’d think. Weak concept imagery—the ability to image a gestalt (whole)—may be the cause. Weakness in concept imagery interferes with reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.
There are individual differences in the ability to visualize language—a key to good comprehension skills. We will teach your child how to “see movies when they read” so they will get the big picture. Improving this skill will make school easier. Learn more about how we develop comprehension here.
Does your child “hate” math? People who are good at math can easily visualize math concepts. The language of numbers turns into imagery, and they “see” mathematical relationships. We can teach your child how to think with numbers. Learn how we solve math “problems” here. Individuals of all ages can learn to enjoy math!
Academic Prep is an enrichment program for students ready to advance in writing, study skills, organization, and test-taking. Students benefit from our expertise in learning and cognition to enhance their skills. One-to-one programs are tailor-made to address your child’s academic needs—and get them excited about the coming school year!
How long is a summer program?
Instruction is based on individual learning needs. Programs are typically 4-6 weeks.
Which program should we do?
A learning ability evaluation will identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses that may affect school. In a results consultation, we recommend a personalized instruction plan to change your child’s learning success.
Is this for students with learning disabilities?
Some students come to us with a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, or a general learning challenge—and we make a big difference for each. Some students seek our help to enhance their skills or make learning easier.
What about planned vacations?
Let’s talk! We can either work a break into your summer program or conduct sessions online without interrupting your child’s learning momentum.
Will it be fun?
Definitely! Our staff is highly skilled in making learning changes in a short period. A big part of how we do that is through our positive, dynamic, enthusiastic interactions with students of all ages. You will be amazed at how much your child loves learning this summer!
