Since 1986, Lindamood-Bell has worked with schools, educators, and students to implement programs and organizational processes that develop or remediate literacy skills. We help educators provide evidence-based, sensory-cognitive instruction as a basis for developing phonemic awareness, phonics, orthographic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, math, and reading comprehension.

 

Our partnerships with schools have succeeded in closing the achievement gap by providing explicit, cumulative, and systematic instruction in this methodology. We have substantial evidence of effectiveness with turning around low-performing schools and increasing reading proficiency with struggling readers, including students with dyslexia and in special education.

 

Profiles of Success: School and Student Outcomes

 

We have created school implementation and professional development options designed to maximize student achievement. The following are two examples. See more of our results with schools here.

 

Kodiak Island Borough School District

Kodiak Island School Borough (KISB) serves a large percentage of students who are at-risk of reading failure. During the summer of 2016, KISB implemented Lindamood-Bell instruction to address the specific needs of this student population. Teachers received initial workshops and job-embedded professional development to build their instructional capacity. Statistically significant gains were made on all reading measures. KISB summer school results.

 

Fort Smith Public Schools 

Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, Fort Smith Public Schools implemented Lindamood-Bell instruction to address the specific needs of dyslexic students and provide a solid foundation for all early learners. The partnership has been cost-effective for schools and life-changing for students. Read about their successful Summer Reading Program and download results here.

 

Levels of Professional Learning 

 

Evidence-based programs are key to our solutions for schools.

Our approach addresses the imagery-language foundation that is a silent partner to cognition and literacy—often the missing piece in helping students close the achievement gap. 

Lindamood-Bell for Schools Levels of Professional Learning include teacher workshops, job-embedded coaching, and comprehensive school partnerships. We help schools build expertise in aligning assessments with instruction for students in all tiers of instruction. Our programs address the skills needed for students to access curriculum.
