Programs Help Transform Low-Performing School!

In 2010, Center, Colorado's Haskin Elementary School was identified as being in the state's lowest 5% of schools, based on student achievement. The district received federal school improvement funds and partnered with Lindamood-Bell to adopt our innovative reading and math programs. All teachers received professional development in the Seeing Stars® and Visualizing and Verbalizing® programs. Other specialists were also trained in the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) Program and the On Cloud Nine® Math program.

Since the adoption of the programs, student achievement has been transformed. With over 90% of its students in poverty and over 50% of them being English learners, Haskin outperformed all other School Improvement Grant (SIG) schools in the state. Over the three-year grant period (2010–13), the percentage of Haskin students who were proficient or advanced in reading increased, on average, by 29 points. In comparison, all other Colorado SIG schools combined for only a 7.5-point average increase. In math, 3rd- and 4th-grade achievement has soared. For example, in 2010 only 26% of Haskin's 4th graders were proficient or advanced in math, and, in 2013, that number increased to 75%.

George Welsh, Superintendent of Center School District, observed the impact of the Lindamood-Bell® programs on his struggling students and stated, "For anyone who has ever felt their below benchmark readers have been permanently wedged in place, the Lindamood-Bell® intervention process serves as a crowbar to unstick them, allowing them to eventually take flight and catch up to the other kids at their grade level. The results of this three-year transformation effort have been nothing short of phenomenal."

New Autism Study Shows Promising Results With Visualizing and Verbalizing® Instruction.

New research on children with autism shows promising results in improving brain connectivity. Dr. Rajesh Kana from the University of Alabama at Birmingham presented findings from a recent study: The Impact of Language Remediation on Brain Connectivity in Children with Autism. The remediation included intensive intervention for children in the Visualizing and Verbalizing® program. Findings were presented at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention in Chicago, having taken place November 14th-16th.

On Cloud Nine® Math and Response to Intervention Model

Macon County schools in Franklin, North Carolina, recently adopted the On Cloud Nine® (OCN™) Math program as part of its Response to Intervention model. Forty district staff members attended a two-day On Cloud Nine® workshop provided by Lindamood-Bell. The district is providing intensive math instruction for students whose literacy needs have been addressed but still struggle with meeting math standards. The program is being targeted in K-2 classrooms, and will be implemented in Tier 3 groups.
On Cloud Nine® instruction develops skills required for success with the Common Core State Standards. Explicit instruction in Concept Imagery for math increases conceptual understanding, fluency, and application.
