We Offer PD in the Science of Reading

Feb 21, 2023
 
 

Lindamood-Bell is pleased to offer professional development in the Science of Reading, as approved by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.  The Seeing Stars® and Visualizing and Verbalizing® programs address the components outlined in the Reading Sufficiency Act (RSA).   

As an industry leader in reading interventions and professional development for more than 35 years, we partner with schools to increase reading achievement.

Key Features

Seeing Stars develops symbol imagery as a foundational skill for reading. Often a critical missing piece in popular reading and dyslexia interventions, symbol imagery is explicitly and systematically developed for orthographic mapping, fast word retrieval, fluency, and global reading skills. Seeing Stars aligns to all instructional principles and components of a structured literacy approach (SLA). However, unlike many SLA interventions that focus predominantly on or overemphasize phonemic awareness, Seeing Stars systematically integrates phonological AND orthographic processing necessary for automaticity in word reading skills.

 

Visualizing and Verbalizing develops concept imagery as a foundational skill for language comprehension and higher-order thinking.  The program provides systematic and explicit instruction based on how the brain processes language for comprehension, stimulating the sensory-cognitive skill of mental imagery.  This differs from typical SLA approaches based primarily on the Simple View of Reading since many students may struggle with reading comprehension despite good decoding and oral vocabulary skills.

Sustained Professional Development

Lindamood-Bell offers levels of professional development, which are key components for quality instruction with fidelity. Most programs provide only one- to two-day inservices, with minimal or no follow-up support. Evidence-based practices require rigorous, ongoing professional learning. After educators complete a comprehensive workshop, Lindamood-Bell provides job-embedded coaching throughout the year, including extended school year sessions and summer academies. Coaching is conducted online while teachers work directly with students. This enables instructional experts to model the steps and provide feedback to teachers for continuous improvement.

Evidence-Based

Our approach has been implemented in thousands of school systems, serving struggling readers and students with dyslexia since the late 1990s. The programs include a strong research base in the cognitive science of reading and hundreds of school case studies demonstrating significant gains in reading: district-wide K-2 instruction and K-12 dyslexia initiative – Accelerating student learning in Fort Smith Public Schools, Arkansas.

Peer-reviewed research – Rewiring the dyslexic brain with Seeing Stars intervention. Changing the intrinsic connectivity of the brain’s reading network with Visualizing and Verbalizing intervention.
