The Seeing Stars, Visualizing and Verbalizing, and LiPS programs have been selected by the Arizona Dept. of Education as approved interventions for the Move on When Reading initiative. Intervention programs selected for the initiative are recognized as meeting one of the top three evidence tiers, as defined by ESSA.
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, 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.
We are proud to support school districts and educators in Arizona to increase literacy. Below are current and recent school partnerships around The Grand Canyon State:
- Arizona Department of Corrections
- Avondale Elementary School District
- Chandler Unified School District #80
- Desert Heights Charter Schools
- Edison School of Innovation

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.
Professional development available in the Seeing Stars, Visualizing and Verbalizing, and LiPS programs 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.
