Free Guide: "Sensory-Cognitive Instruction and the Common Core"

The Common Core significantly raises the bar for all students regarding the demands of literacy and critical thinking. This presents both an opportunity and a challenge for increasing academic achievement, especially for struggling and at-risk students. Lindamood-Bell®'s research-validated programs have helped students increase literacy skills to meet rigorous academic standards.

Now you can download our white paper, "Sensory-Cognitive Instruction and the Common Core," to learn how our programs support the Common Core.

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 Learning Processes® 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.
