Our Approach

Many years ago, as we were developing Lindamood-Bell, we talked about creating a Lindamood-Bell School.   Year after year, we explored the option, but year after year we were unable to make that dream come true.

I’m very excited to tell you that we have created the Lindamood-Bell Academy where we develop the imagery-language foundation for success in language processing and all curriculum.

Our dream has come true.  Please call us for information so we can make your dreams come true too.

Warmest regards,

Our instruction is based on
an individual’s learning needs.

We work with thousands of individuals.

Sitting with a child or an adult who struggles to read a word or comprehend a paragraph provides unique insight into the learning process.

We develop the skills that underlie reading & comprehension.
