Our Approach

At Lindamood-Bell, we DREAM BIG for learning.

We believe, passionately, that all children and adults can be taught to read, comprehend, and do math to their potential.

 

We identify strengths and weaknesses that may be affecting school performance. Our instruction is based on an individual’s learning needs.

 

Some students come to us with previous diagnoses such as dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders, or general learning challenges—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.

Our Approach

Our approach to learning is global, balanced, and interactive.

Lindamood-Bell has pioneered programs to develop the sensory-cognitive processes that underlie reading and comprehension.

Our experience, our quality of instruction, our commitment to ongoing research and development, and our passion to constantly expand the implementation and success of our instructional programs are at the root of our success.

We remain committed to making a difference in the lives of the children and adults we are fortunate enough to serve.

Most sincerely,

Our instruction is based on
an individual’s learning needs.

We work with thousands of individuals.

Sitting with a child or an adult who struggles to read a word or comprehend a paragraph provides unique insight into the learning process.

We develop the skills that underlie reading & comprehension.

Evidence-Based Programs

Lindamood-Bell utilizes unique programs, authored by our co-founders.

Traditional reading and tutoring programs focus on content instruction. Lindamood-Bell programs focus on the sensory-cognitive processing necessary for reading and comprehension.

Lindamood-Bell is the only official provider endorsed by the authors of these programs and offers the highest level of instructional quality and fidelity.
