Imagine a Love of Reading: Summer Learning at Lindamood-Bell
While you’d like your son or daughter to love reading as much as you do, the reality may be just the opposite. In fact, they might even say they dislike reading and when they finally sit down with a book, there are cries of, “Am I done yet?” or “How many more pages?” every few minutes.
In this video, alumni parent, Melinda, describes how a Lindamood-Bell learning evaluation pinpointed exactly why her children were not excited about reading—and what could be done to help. While some students come to us with a diagnosis such as dyslexia, many students, like Melinda’s children, just need the right instruction to make learning easier.
Though Melinda’s kids were wary about using summertime for learning, she describes what made them go from “push back” to saying they had “the best summer ever.” She gives a parent’s perspective on what makes our learning center sessions so fun and effective, and how improved reading and comprehension have sparked a love of books for the family.
