While your school may not yet know exactly what the fall will look like, one thing’s for sure—months away from the classroom can lead to measurable learning loss in skills like reading and math. This is especially true for students who struggle with learning.
What is the COVID slide?
Education researchers have long described the “summer slide.” Students come back to school out of practice, maybe forgetting some of what they learned. This year’s “COVID slide” is expected to be worse; experts estimate that students will return to school this fall having made 30% less gain in reading skills and 50% less gain in math skills.
Reading and math help this summer
At Lindamood-Bell we have experience helping students go back to school with better skills and more confidence. Our evidence-based summer programs result in extraordinary academic gain in a matter of weeks. Now more than ever, it is important to shore up the literacy and math skills your student needs most.
You can count on Lindamood-Bell to help your child catch up this summer and feel more confident and prepared for school. Depending on the location, we’ll be open either live online or in person. Just like our in-center instruction, our virtual instruction is 100% live and face-to-face.
Imagine your child returning to school in the fall with better skills, ready to tackle the new year. Students can spend part of their summer turning what could have been a learning loss, into a learning gain.
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’ll only spend time on what your child needs. Learn about our summer programs here.
Some students come to us with a previous diagnosis of a learning challenge. Some need learning to be easier, while some can use summer learning to get ahead for next year.
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. Students go back to school with more confidence.
