    Millions Have Dyslexia, Few Understand It

    "It's frustrating that you can't read the simplest word in the world." Thomas Lester grabs a book and opens to a random page. He points to a word: galloping. "Goll-. G-. Gaa-. Gaa-. G-. " He keeps trying. It is as if the rest ­­of the word is in him somewhere, but he can't sound it out.

Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes – Why Work For Us?


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.

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.

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.

Casual for a Cause
The last Friday of each month is Casual for a Cause™ day at Lindamood-Bell, allowing participating employees to dress casually and show their support by making a monthly donation to one of the following charitable organizations:

Save the Children

Save the Children, the world's leading organization for children, invests in children's health, education, and emergency programs.  In the United States and around the world, they give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn, and protection from harm.

Autism Speaks

An organization of parents, clinicians, and leading scientists committed to accelerating the pace of biomedical research in autism.

Wounded Warrior Project

Provides programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life.


Each year, Lindamood-Bell holds a Thank-A-Thon to support soldiers serving overseas. All Lindamood-Bell® students and staff, from their 50 Learning Centers throughout the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia are joined by neighboring schools to create thousands of thank you cards and letters that are then sent to deployed Service members and their families.

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…”

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes.


    There was a short spelling test and a critical analysis test. (Studying the critical analysis practice test will be very beneficial.) This was followed by an in-person interview. The tests are really just to make sure you are competent to teach the material and the in-person interview is to make sure you know how to manage behavior in children.
