Applied Learning Processes is a learning center providing research-based diagnosis and treatment for learning difficulties experienced by children, adolescents and adults. Our methods are effective for those whose problems have not responded to other methods because they stimulate the basic sensory-processing deficits that underlie language disorders. Our methods are systematic, explicit, and multi-sensory and fall under the umbrella of Orton-Gillingham techniques as defined by the International Dyslexia Association. We have been successfully implementing Lindamood-BellĀ® concepts and techniques in the Kansas City area since 1989.

Other techniques that have informed our work include: Phono-graphix, by Carmen and Geoffrey McGuinness; Math-U-See, by Steve Demme; and Handwriting Without Tears, by Jan Olsen.

(Applied Learning Processes is NOT Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes nor is it affiliated with, certified, endorsed, licensed, monitored or sponsored by Lindamood-Bell, Nanci Bell, Phyllis Lindamood or Pat Lindamood.  Lindamood-Bell - an international organization creating and implementing unique instructional methods and programs for quality intervention to advance language and literacy skills - in no way endorses or monitors the services provided by Applied Learning Processes.)


Our clinicians are not tutors in the traditional sense, but our goal is the development of independent learners who no longer need tutoring for reading, spelling, comprehension, or math.

We treat children and adults diagnosed with:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Dyslexia
  • Dysgraphia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Non-Verbal Learning Disorder (NVLD)
  • Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD, PDD-NOS)
  • Asperger's Syndrome
  • Speech/Language Delay
  • Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder
