For Homeschool Families There is New Help
For decades, homeschool families have turned to Lindamood-Bell for help with language and literacy skills. We are pleased to share a new, convenient way for you to easily incorporate genuine Lindamood-Bell instruction into your homeschool program!
Introducing Lindamood-Bell Online Instruction
Lindamood-Bell Online Instruction is located where each child needs to learn. This works well for our homeschool families who live far from a centre and for busy families with challenging schedules.
What is Online Instruction?
Online Instruction is the same instruction students receive at our learning centres, delivered via the internet. Online instruction is personal, flexible, and interactive!
It takes place via videoconference meetings hosted by Lindamood-Bell. We connect with you from a Lindamood-Bell Learning Centre and our instruction staff work with your student. At home, a homeschool educator or other adult will perform the role of at-home facilitator.
- Sensory-cognitive, intensive, one-to-one instruction for qualified students
- Log in from home — instruction online
- Need computer with camera and internet access sufficient for streaming video
Your local learning centre can provide all the information you’ll need to get started.
We believe that all children and adults can be taught to read and comprehend to their potential. We identify strengths and weaknesses that may be be affecting school performance in reading, comprehension, and maths. Our instruction is based on an individual’s learning needs. Some students come to us with previous diagnoses such as dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders, or general learning challenges—and we make a difference for each of them. Some students seek our help to enhance their skills or to just make learning easier—and we do.
Sensory-Cognitive Instruction at Lindamood-Bell
If your student has a weakness that affects learning, they may not be getting everything they should from school. Students with poor comprehension, critical thinking, writing, and memory may have weak concept imagery—the ability to create an imagined gestalt (whole) from language; students who are poor decoders and spellers, or slow readers, may have weak symbol imagery—the ability to visualise letters in words.
A learning weakness is not only frustrating for a student, but prevents them from accessing school curriculum. We start by identifying strengths and weaknesses that may be affecting performance in reading, comprehension, and maths—and we make recommendations for individualised instruction plans that create learning gains. One-to-one instruction is available at the learning centre or online.
When school is hard, we can help make learning easier. Homeschool families can continue to benefit from community resources—without needing to gain expertise in new subjects.
