Pros

The schedule is very consistent - 8:00-5:00 every day. The kids learn a lot and it is a very rewarding feeling. The day goes by quickly.

Cons

Not one day off during the 10 week period including holidays, which can be difficult if you are trying to schedule an appointment.

    Former Employee - Consultant in Scottsdale, AZ

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working and helping different types of kids was a true pleasure. The programs for the most part are effective. The clinicians in Scottsdale were incredible people and truly care about the kids.

    Cons

    Clique atmosphere. Poor management structure. Little room for advancement. Poorly defined culture. Questionable business practices both in regards to employees and clients. The jobs sole focus is sales under the guise of helping children. Employees are fearful to speak to management due to a history of negative reprisals.

    Felt Like Junior High At Times

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The programs are amazing and usually work well. It's very satisfying personally and professionally watching a kid who struggles academically to gain knowledge, skills, and self-confidence in such a short amount of time as several weeks. The training is top-notch and they try to make it fun, even though the 2-week training can be tedious at times. It's great that LBLP bases their programs in research and ongoing research, like the recent MRI study with dyslexic adults and how LBLP intervention affects their brains. The 8-5 hours are great for a post-college summer job with no weekends required. If you're interested in becoming a teacher, speech therapist, or a reading specialist, the training and experience is invaluable and generally enjoyable work.

    Cons

    Some of the senior staff, Consultants, and the other Clinicians were cliquish and you got the feeling that they were part of the LBLP "good ol' girls" club. You were either "in" or you weren't. Several of the summer Clinicians experienced this exclusive behavior, which was odd and downright laughable at times because it felt like being back in junior high. The pay isn't that great considering how expensive the programs are (parents easily fork over $100+/hour). Don't expect regular hours for steady income and they often change the schedule on you, reducing or increasing your hours the same day, without telling you...never mind if you have a family to feed or had something scheduled. Sometimes you work as few as 4 hours a week and others almost 40. The constant evaluations during sessions are, frankly, annoying and intrusive. I understand that it's a research-based program, but there's too many people looking over your shoulder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Here's some Magical Learning Moments for you: Get rid of the corny wanna-be Disney theme. It's corny. Let each clinic express their individual locations and have some leeway over their decisions. Not everything has to be "by design!" Also, consider eliminating LiPS from the training session, or consider tailoring it to each center's needs. Some centers use it more than others, from what I heard. I know LiPS was revolutionary back in the day before speech therapy took off as a profession, but most school districts catch speech problems early these days. LiPS isn't used often. In the 2 years I worked for LBLP, I overwhelmingly taught Seeing Stars and V/V with occasional Cloud Nine and Talkies. I only taught pure LiPS once and that kid was five and her speech problem wasn't even that bad.
