The Lindamood-Bell approach and programs provide powerful methods and tools for learning. They specifically help to build the sensory-cognitive skills that are necessary for reading and comprehension of what is read. During the process of reading, these skill areas are intertwined and must be integrated; a weakness in one will affect the overall end-goal of independent comprehension.
