Lindamood-Bell | Summer Programs as Unique as Your Student
Lindamood-Bell believes a summer program individualised to meet the learning needs of each student in a short amount of time is the best way to get ahead this summer. Because it’s one-to-one, each student’s specific needs are addressed, and they begin to thrive. Where does your student need an extra boost? Lindamood-Bell is here to help.
Strong readers recognise common words and can sound out unfamiliar words easily. This makes reading at grade level or above easy, and not a chore.
Students who are currently struggling can learn to read to their potential this summer. Identifying why reading is hard for each student and spending a few weeks developing the skills they need to become a better reader is a great and effective approach.
If your child is still learning to read, a few weeks at a Summer Learning Camp can make a difference. Emerging readers can work on the basics that will make the transition to kindergarten or year one a breeze.
Do words “go in one ear and out the other” for your student? This is more common than you’d think. Weak concept imagery—the ability to get a whole picture from something heard or seen by your student—may be the cause. Weakness in concept imagery interferes with reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.
There are individual differences in the ability to visualise language—a key to good comprehension skills. Teaching a student how to “see movies when they read,” so they will get the big picture will make many aspects of school easier.
Does your student “hate” maths? People who are good at maths can visualise math concepts. Individuals of all ages can learn to do and enjoy maths once the language of numbers turns into imagery and they “see” mathematical relationships.
Academic Prep is an enrichment program for students ready to advance in areas like writing, study skills, organisation, and test taking. With expertise in learning and cognition, and one-to-one programs that are tailor-made to address the academic needs of your student, you can get them excited about the coming school year!
Frequently Asked Questions
How long is a summer program?
Instruction is based on individual learning needs. Programs are typically 4-6 weeks.
Which program should we do?
A learning ability evaluation will identify your student’s strengths and weaknesses that may be affecting school. In a results consultation, we will recommend an individualised instruction plan that will change your student’s learning.
Is this for students with learning disabilities?
Some students come to us with a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, or a general learning challenge—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. Any student of any level can benefit from one-to-one educational attention.
What about planned vacations?
Let’s talk! We can either work a break into your summer program or conduct sessions online without interrupting your student’s learning momentum.
Will it be fun?
Definitely! Our staff is highly skilled to make learning changes in a short period of time. A big part of how we do that is through our positive, energetic, enthusiastic interactions with students of all ages. You will be amazed at how much your child loves learning this summer!
