Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LIPS®) and the Seeing Stars® Programs
A Solution: Lindamood Phonemic Sequencing® (LiPS®) with the Seeing Stars® Programs --for phonemic awareness, reading, spelling, and fluency.
Daily repetition, five days a week, is also a key to the effectiveness of these two programs. Average gains in word attack skills on the Woodcock Reading Mastery Test are 2-4 grade levels. Most clients are able to complete these programs in 80 to 120 total hours.
The LiPS® Program was developed by two linguists, Patricia and Charles Lindamood, in 1969 at their clinic in San Luis Obispo, CA. It was originally named the Auditory Discrimination in Depth Program (ADD). Their wide experience in education and linguistics gave them unique resources for developing this program for the remediation of learning problems with both children and adults. Today Lindamood-Bell has clinics in the U.S. as well as several foreign countries. The Seeing Stars® Program was developed by the co-director of the Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes®, Nanci Bell in 1997.
