In general, “dyslexia” is defined by evidence of a student having difficulty with decoding and fluency. The results summarized below are from Lindamood-Bell® Learning Center students who reported having been previously diagnosed with dyslexia and who had phonemic awareness, word attack, and word recognition skills at or below the 25th percentile. On average, these students exhibited substantial gains, in the above-mentioned categories, from just weeks of intensive Seeing Stars® instruction.
Lindamood-Bell Learning Centers provide research-validated, one-to-one instruction to improve reading, comprehension, and math for students of all ages. In the summer of 2013, 172 students with previous third-party diagnoses of Dyslexia received an average of 95 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:
