It is estimated that between 5% and 8% of the general population of children qualify as having Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and/or impulsiveness are the main characteristics. Lindamood-Bell Learning Center students who reported having previous, third- party diagnoses of ADHD, on average, received instruction that was fairly evenly split between the Seeing Stars® program for decoding, and the Visualizing and Verbalizing® program for comprehension – or a combination of the two.
Lindamood-Bell Learning Centers provide research-validated, one-to-one instruction to improve reading, comprehension, and math for students of all ages. In 2013, 200 students with previous third-party diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) received an average of 107 hours of Seeing Stars instruction to develop symbol imagery for improved reading. Instruction was delivered by specially trained Lindamood-Bell staff. Student gains were measured with a battery of reading assessments.
After completing instruction, these students achieved the following average gains:
