Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes was founded by Charles and Patricia Lindamood and Nanci Bell in 1986 — with one Learning Center in California. We believed then, and now, that all individuals can learn to process language once the underlying sensory-cognitive functions are stimulated and established.
This has been a remarkable and passionate journey. In 1986, people came to San Luis Obispo, California, from near and far to receive instruction in our programs. As demand grew, it was not long before our students began asking us to come to them. So, we opened Learning Centers in other locations, and have grown to operate over 50 Learning Centers across the United States, plus one in London, England, and one in Sydney, Australia. Additionally, to make our unique instruction available to more families, we have over 40 Seasonal Learning Clinics that will open for a temporary time period in different locations through-out the world.
As time goes on, we have established School Partnerships, throughout the United States, with the goal of helping children that would otherwise be unable to attend one of our Learning Centers. To further that goal, we also offer professional development workshops in our programs, to audiences that include teachers, parents, and professionals, worldwide. Our research-validated programs teach the underlying sensory-cognitive skills necessary for reading, spelling, math, and language comprehension. Recently, we expanded this to bring a Lindamood-Bell Learning Center on Campus where our staff can work directly with the students on-site.
We are proud of what Lindamood-Bell has become today, and honored to help so many individuals reach their potential to learn.
