Grand Opening set for Lindamood-Bell Maui Learning Center
By Wendy Osher
A new learning center will open on Maui this week, specializing in one-to-one instruction and individual’s learning needs.
The Lindamood-Bell Maui Learning Center, is located at 173 Ho’ohana Street in Kahului. The company utilizes Lindamood-Bell learning programs, a company that has 25-years of experience in literacy research and remediation.
The grand opening celebration takes place at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 27. Festivities include presentations, tours of the Learning Center, refreshments and a chance to win a free Learning Ability Evaluation.
“Working in our Learning Centers has given me the opportunity to see our programs turn a non-reader into someone who has to be asked to put away his book and go to bed; and help an adult successfully pass a certification exam after 2 previous attempts,” said Erica Knapp, the new Learning Center Director.
The company utilizes its programs to teach the underlying skills necessary for reading, spelling and comprehension. Learning evaluations further help to identify both strengths and weaknesses of individual students.
Lindamood-Bell also collaborates with schools to provide innovative instructional programs, professional development, and consulting.
The company, established in 1986, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Since it’s establishment, learning centers have been established across the US. The Maui Center is the first in the state and one of more than 80 in the nation. There are also locations in the UK and Australia.
