The National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) is a US-based organization which trains therapists to work with students with learning differences. This model of intervention is designed to stimulate cognitive and perceptual functioning with the goal of equipping individuals to succeed as independent learners.
These classes provide one-on-one or small group instruction for students who are unable to keep up with the pace of their classmates or are not yet ready for grade-level material. The individualized, direct, and specialized instruction enables students to develop academically in a way that better meets their needs than the regular classroom.
Students struggling to read in the early grades can receive individual or small group reading intervention that uses multi-sensory methods to develop a child's phonological and phonemic awareness. Spelling, reading fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension skills are addressed in the individualized and differentiated instruction sessions.
Social-Emotional Competency Training uses evidence-based strategies to help children and young adults improve their social competencies, including self-awareness, self-regulation, emotional intelligence, executive functioning, perspective taking, and social problem solving. Our coaching helps students understand themselves and others in order to better navigate the social world, foster relationships, and improve one's performance at school as well as in the wider world.
