Our professionally Certified Educational Therapists use NILD therapy techniques during individualized one-on-one intervention sessions. Their focus is to address the underlying causes of learning difficulties rather than simply treat the symptoms like tutoring does.
The therapist aims the intervention just above the student's current level of functioning and creates a framework to foster growth in emotion, cognition, perception and academics. NILD therapy students gain mastery over their cognitive vulnerabilities and become competent and confident learners.
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.
