Dyslexia Awareness Month – Join Us for a Webinar

Oct 9, 2020
 
 

 

 

For Dyslexia Awareness Month, we are sharing our belief that all individuals can be taught to read to their potential—including those who have a previous diagnosis of dyslexia.

 

Is Dyslexia Permanent?

Researchers from the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences, University of Washington, have published new research on dyslexia that explores how intensive intervention drives the growth of reading skills in struggling readers.

 

Dr. Jason Yeatman, one of the study’s researchers, says that although dyslexia is often thought of as permanent, the findings indicate that the targeted, intensive instruction leads to “substantial” improvements in reading skills and changes in the “underlying wiring of the brain’s reading circuitry.”

Improved symbol imagery changes how students read and spell, regardless of their ages or their struggles with literacy—including students with dyslexia. Numerous peer-reviewed articles based on studies examining the effectiveness of Lindamood-Bell instruction with dyslexic students have been published in scholarly journals – Summary of Behavioral & Neurological Research—Dyslexia

Our Experience and Results

Over the course of three decades, Lindamood-Bell has worked with thousands of individuals. Sitting with a child or an adult who struggles to read a word provides unique insights into the learning process. Our success with students is due to our unique approach, including our research-validated, sensory-cognitive instruction.

 

The Seeing Stars® program addresses the learning needs of students with dyslexia. Seeing Stars develops symbol imagery, the ability to visualize letters in words. Symbol imagery is integral to independence in sounding out new words, recognizing common words, spelling, and fluent contextual reading.  

 

Students with dyslexia who receive Seeing Stars instruction at our Learning Centers make significant improvements in reading in a matter of weeks. Our most recent Learning Center Results include data for 2,100+ students who had previously been diagnosed with dyslexia. These students made large (statistically significant) standard score changes on six of the seven measures. The 20-point percentile increase in Word Recognition put these students well within the normal range (25th–75th percentile).

 

Schools partner with Lindamood-Bell for our expertise in meeting the needs of students with dyslexia. The case study Solutions for Dyslexia | Spotlight on Fort Smith Public Schools outlines a district-wide professional development initiative.
