Help for Homeschool at Lindamood-Bell

Jul 22, 2020
 
 

 

For decades, homeschool families have turned to Lindamood-Bell for help with language and literacy skills. We work with homeschool educators to make learning easier for their children. Families can continue to benefit from homeschool community resources—without needing to gain expertise in new subjects.

In these unprecedented times, we are pleased to also offer a helping hand to families who may be new to educating their children from home. Just like every student has unique learning needs, homeschool families require varying levels of support.  

 

Homeschool Enrichment Programs

If your student has a weakness that affects learning, they may not get everything they should from your homeschool curriculum. A learning weakness is not only frustrating for a student, but prevents them from accessing school curriculum. 

 

Our Approach

We believe that all individuals can be taught to read and comprehend to their potential. We identify strengths and weaknesses that may be affecting school performance in reading, comprehension, and math. Our instruction is based on an individual’s learning needs. Some students who come to us have a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia, autism, or a general learning challenge—and we make a difference for each of them. Some students seek our help to enhance their skills or to just make learning easier—and we do.

We start by identifying strengths and weaknesses that may be affecting performance in reading, comprehension, and math—and we make recommendations for individualized instruction plans that create learning gains. One-to-one instruction is available at a Learning Center or online.

 

Reading

Strong readers recognize common words and can sound out unfamiliar words easily. This makes reading at grade level or above easy and not a chore. 

Students who are currently struggling can learn to read to their potential.  We identify why reading is hard for each student and develop the skills they need to become a better reader. Learn about our approach.

 

Early Learning

If your child is still learning to read, we can work on the basics that will make the transition to kindergarten or first-grade curriculum a breeze. We strengthen the imagery-language foundation for reading, spelling, and comprehension. Learn about how we help young learners here.

 

Comprehension

Do words “go in one ear and out the other” for your child? This is more common than you’d think. A weakness in concept imagery—the ability to image a gestalt (whole)—may be the cause. Weakness in concept imagery interferes with reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.

There are individual differences in the ability to visualize languagea key to good comprehension skills. We teach students how to “see movies when they read,” so they will get the big picture. Improving this skill will make many aspects of school easier. Learn more about how we develop comprehension here.

 

Math

Does your child “hate” math? People who are good at math can visualize math concepts. The language of numbers turns into imagery and they “see” mathematical relationships. We teach students how to think with numbers. Learn how we solve math “problems” here. Individuals of all ages can learn to do and enjoy math!  

 

Academic Prep

Academic Prep is an enrichment program for students ready to advance in areas like writing, study skills, organization, and test-taking. Students benefit from our expertise in learning and cognition. One-to-one programs are tailor-made to address the academic needs of students.
