Strengthen Learning Skills with Winter Break Instruction
While hitting the books is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of relaxing, it’s important to consider the effect that time off from learning may have on your student.
Winter break instruction is individualized to meet the needs of each student. For students who have difficulties with reading, comprehension, or math, winter break is an excellent way to get ahead on a new or ongoing intensive instruction plan, and to start taking the steps to make learning easier.
Students can attend for an enrichment program to advance in areas like writing, study skills, and test taking. Alumni students might attend for help applying their skills to something new, like story problems or reading fluency.
Ways We Can Help
Give your student the learning skills needed for success when facing academic challenges. Even students who are comfortable and excel in a traditional school environment can benefit from our expertise in learning and cognition. We teach:
- Note taking
- Study Skills
- Test-taking strategies

Build the Imagery-Language Foundation at Lindamood-Bell
Students who are having a hard time in school may have a weakness that affects 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 imagined gestalt (whole) from language. Students who are poor decoders and spellers, those typically labeled as “slow readers,” may have weak symbol imagery—the ability to visualize letters in words. These difficulties are not only frustrating for a student, but also prevent them from fully understanding school curriculum.
Our unique imagery-language instruction can make a difference. Students can experience years of gains in just a few weeks, and they can continue to grow during the school year—either online or at the learning center.
