Beyond Camp: Summer Programs as Unique as Your Child!
Summer learning at Lindamood-Bell is individualized to meet the learning needs of each student in a short amount of time. Because it’s one-to-one, we will only spend time on what your child needs. Programs we offer:
Students who are currently struggling with reading get the skills they need to make reading easier. Strong readers recognize common words and can sound out unfamiliar words easily. We will identify why reading is hard and spend a few weeks changing how they approach the written word.
Our youngest students spend a few weeks working on the basics in order to make the transition to kindergarten, first, or even second grade, easier. We strengthen the imagery-language foundation for reading, spelling and comprehension.
Do words “go in one ear and out the other” for your child? This is more common than you’d think. There are individual differences in the ability to visualize language–a key to good comprehension skills. We will teach your child how to “see movies when they read,” so they will get the big picture. Improving this skill will make school easier.
Does your child “hate” math? People who are great at math can easily visualize math functions. The language of numbers turns into imagery and they “see” mathematical relationships. We can teach your child how to visualize and verbalize numbers and concepts. And learn to love math!
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 your child—and get them excited about the coming school year!
How long is a summer program?
Instruction is based on individual learning needs. Programs are typically 3-5 weeks.
Which program should we do?
A learning evaluation will uncover the strengths and weaknesses that are affecting school. In a thorough results consultation, we will recommend the best individualized learning plan to make a difference for your child’s learning.
Is this for kids with learning disabilities?
Some students come to us with a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, 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.
What about planned vacations?
Let’s talk! We can either work a break into your summer program or conduct sessions online without interrupting your child’s learning momentum.
Will it be fun?
Definitely! Our staff is highly skilled to make learning changes in a short period of time. A big part of how we do that is through our positive, energetic, enthusiastic interactions with students of all ages. You will be amazed at how much your child loves learning this summer!
