Help your child with their school struggles

Term has begun, which means your child may be entering a new school year with new demands. Sometimes those new pressures can leave your child feeling overwhelmed- but there’s something you can do.

When a child is struggling with schoolwork, parents suffer, too. It’s heartbreaking to witness a youngster routinely fail spelling tests, misunderstand classroom discussions, or experience anxiety with word problems.

But you don’t have to feel like your child is the only one- the staff at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes has heard similar stories from countless worried parents around the globe. And for more than 30 years, the company’s dedicated personnel have helped students overcome their challenges.

How it works

Lindamood-Bell believes that people of all ages and abilities can be taught to read and comprehend to their full potential.

  • The company’s learning centres are welcoming places, where parents can have their children assessed for strengths and weaknesses across a range of oral and written language tasks
  • Staff will then thoroughly explain the test findings and discuss parents’ concerns
  • Based on the assessment results, the learning centre director will recommend an individualised plan in one or more Lindamood-Bell programs, to boost student performance
  • Each student then receives one-on-one instruction from highly-trained teachers to develop the imagery-language connection that is vital for academic success. Instruction plans are differentiated to address each child’s specific needs and goals. Parents are welcome to observe sessions anytime, and will receive weekly updates to review program and plan next steps with the staff.

What the families say

Many students who have undergone Lindamood-Bell instruction have transformed their aversion to academics into a love of learning. This testimonial from an Australian parent illustrates the impact that Lindamood-Bell instruction can make on a child’s life: 

“My son Steve, who studied with you for 6 weeks when he was 7, is now 22. He has graduated last year from the University of NSW with 1st Class Honours and the Dean’s Award for academic excellence. To say I am thankful to you is an understatement of the broadest proportions!”

Lindamood-Bell’s research-validated techniques can also help people with a range of learning challenges, including dyslexia, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and auditory processing disorder.

Established in San Luis Obispo, California in 1986, Lindamood-Bell now operates 64 learning centers in the United States, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. According to co-founder Nanci Bell, “We remain committed to making a difference in the lives of the children and adults we are fortunate enough to serve.”
