We teach Reading, Comprehension, and Math.
Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes is an organization dedicated to helping children and adults learn to their potential. Our research-validated instructional programs strengthen reading, comprehension, and math skills by developing the sensory-cognitive functions that form the foundation of learning.
For over 25 years, our intensive, process-based instruction has been used in Lindamood-Bell Learning Centers and School Partnerships to help individuals of all ages improve their language processing skills and become more independent. The Lindamood-Bell programs have proven successful for individuals with a wide range of learning challenges, including previous, third-party diagnoses of learning disabilities such as dyslexia, hyperlexia, ADHD, CAPD, and autism spectrum disorders.
Proven • Research-validated • Real
It is our philosophy that everyone has the ability to reach their potential and that accurate diagnosis and relevant instruction enables that to happen. Our reading paradigm is based on the knowledge that language and literacy skills are cognitive acts.
Our instruction is based on a theory of cognition rather than reading methods or strategies that do not address the global needs of learners.
The Lindamood-Bell® programs develop the five components outlined by the National Reading Panel Report of 2000: phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. These skills are critical for overall academic achievement.
Nanci Bell, M.A., is a co-founder, and the current director, of Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes. Nanci received her B.A. in Elementary Education and her M.A. in Education, specializing in Reading, from California Polytechnic State University. She began as a classroom teacher and then worked in private practice where she gained extensive experience in the clinical treatment of language and literacy disorders. Interested in finding solutions, and believing that concept imagery is a critical factor in language comprehension and analytical thinking, she developed specific steps to stimulate concept imagery. Nanci later applied that research to the development of her program to improve reading fluency and accuracy. In 1986, Nanci Bell co-founded Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, which now has 50 Learning Centers throughout the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, as well as numerous professional development opportunities for teachers, schools, and school districts.Patricia Lindamood
Patricia C. Lindamood, M.S., CCC-SLP, was a co-founder and director of Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes. Her background in speech-language pathology and audiology, and her husband’s background in linguistics, led to their early interest and seminal research in phonemic awareness/auditory conceptual function, as well as its predictive relationship to reading and spelling development. Their clinical experience and research resulted in a diagnostic test and treatment program for phonemic awareness/auditory conceptual function that is still in use, both nationally and internationally. The Human Learning and Behavior branch of the National Institute of Health has funded multiple research studies involving the Lindamood® concepts. Pat’s professional experience included public school, university, and hospital settings, in addition to her private practice and time as an adjunct instructor for the University of California.
Community involvement is an integral part of Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes. Our Corporate office as well as each individual Learning Center partners with local and/or national organizations to give back. Our School Partnership projects also include community outreach to parents and the local communities where they are involved.
We are dedicated to making a difference. It matters.Casual for a Cause

We had tried several different programs and had limited success…The Lindamood-Bell program has changed all this…”

L-B let's you hang out with cute kids all day, in a small office with a close-knit team. The office manager is very fun to be around.
The job can get quite monotonous at times. Also, it is annoying when you have to deal with especially troublesome kids.

More closed rooms to separate the problem students.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes (New York, NY).
There's a testing portion and a short interview where they ask you questions about yourself and experience. They test your spelling abilities as well. And then afterwards they will ask you to demonstrate how you would handle a task with the person next to you.
