Research is essential to the operation and growth of Lindamood-Bell. Not only do we continuously improve our services through the collection and analysis of our Learning Center and School Partnership data, but we also keep a close watch on the current, international trends in educational and cognitive research. As we are dedicated to the ongoing research and development of our instructional models, programs, and philosophies, Lindamood-Bell representatives are often invited to present at conferences – both large and small, local and international.

In addition to showcasing our unique, research-validated programs and instructional models, Lindamood-Bell presentations have ranged from theory-based topics – such as sensory-cognitive functioning, Dual Coding Theory, and the imagery-language connection – to more application-based topics – such as Turnaround initiatives for lower-performing schools and districts, potential benefits of imagery-based instruction for students previously diagnosed with learning disabilities, and the scientific study of reading.

Furthermore, we also host our own educational conference, where parents, teachers, and professionals can attend presentations by the world’s foremost pioneers in the fields of education and cognition, including Lindamood-Bell co-founder and Director, Nanci Bell.

Below, you can view some of the past presentations given by our co-founder and director, Nanci Bell, as well as some past presentations given by other Lindamood-Bell representatives.
