October Term Break: Imagine Better Learning Skills
At Lindamood-Bell, term break instruction is individualized to meet each student’s needs. For students who need extra support with reading, comprehension or math, the 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 specific areas, such as writing, study skills, and test-taking. Alumni students might attend for help applying their skills to new tasks like story problems or reading fluency.
Ways We Can Help
Give your student the learning skills needed for success when facing an academic challenge. Students who do not require remediation can benefit from our expertise in learning and cognition. We teach:
- Note taking
- Study Skills
- Test-taking strategies
- Organization skills

Students who struggle in school may have a weakness or weaknesses that affect learning. Unfortunately, these students typically fall further behind as the year goes on. Students with poor comprehension, critical thinking, writing, or memory may have weak concept imagery—the ability to create an imagined gestalt (whole) from language. Students who are poor decoders and spellers (commonly labeled “slow readers”) may have weak symbol imagery—the ability to visualize letters in words. These difficulties are not only frustrating for students, but can also prevent them from accessing school curriculum.
Our unique instruction can make a difference. Students can gain years of progress in just a few weeks, and this can also continue for them during the school year—either online or at the learning center.
