Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes – Why Work For Us?


We are an internationally recognized leader in the remediation of learning difficulties. Our research-validated programs teach reading, spelling, language comprehension, and math.

For more information about Lindamood-Bell, please visit our website:www.lindamoodbell.com

Our Philosophy

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.

Testimonials

Our Founders

Nanci Bell
 

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 Matters

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.

Stories from Our Learning Centers
A mother writes about the struggles she faced with her 4th grade son, Michael, who came to a Lindamood-Bell Learning Center having been previously diagnosed with Dyslexia: “…letters were frequently reversed, omitted, and words were rarely read correctly regardless of how much or how many times they were studied. We had tried several different programs and had limited success…The Lindamood-Bell program has changed all this…”

Read, watch, and listen to the stories from our Learning Centers to find out how Lindamood-Bell instruction helped Michael overcome his Dyslexia, and how it has helped other parents, teachers, and students with each of their individual struggles.

Stories from Our School Partnerships
Haskin Elementary School, in Center, Colorado, is a high-poverty, high-minority school that partnered with Lindamood-Bell in 2010 to implement a comprehensive, full-school Turnaround initiative. Kathy Kulp, the principal at Haskin, was an integral part of the process: “Lindamood-Bell has had an enormous impact on our school and on our students…Specifically, our students have improved their skills in decoding, fluency, and comprehension…The most wonderful result of all is the sense of achievement and confidence these children have experienced…”

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes full-time

    Pros

    Clear program and I got up to speed quickly. I got to work with kids with many different types of learning disabilities which was really interesting.

    Cons

    The work could be tedious and repetitive. I had to look for ways to keep it interesting for the kids and myself.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes (Tallahassee, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Showed up and took a critical thinking test and a spelling test. Then was asked to demonstrate some of the skills and tasks needed for the job. (Each task was thoroughly explained and demonstrated beforehand). Then I had a personal interview and was offered the job on the spot.
