National Institute for Learning Development - NILD

Welcome to NILD

The Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment Method

The Feuerstein Method teaches the vitally important - and often overlooked - skill of learning how to learn. Our unique educational technique combines specially designed instruments and mediation in order to identify and enhance an individual's learning potential. As a result, the learner gains the knowledge and tools required to reach beyond their manifest abilities.

There is still time to register for Summer 2019 FIE Courses!  Please visit our master training schedule for more details & to register.  We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Pricing and syllabi for these events can be found here.

The Joseph T. Staley, Jr. Scholarship for Awareness, Advocacy, and Intervention

This scholarship is geared toward families whose students struggle to learn in a traditional classroom - students who may or may not have an identified learning disability. These families generally do not have the resources to get their children help, but they are willing to fight for equal educational opportunity for their children. This scholarship lends support in the areas of awareness, advocacy, testing, and services. 

Your donation honors Joseph’s memory by working, one student at a time, to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to learn, receive help when needed, and thrive. Not only in school, but in life.  Click here to learn more or to donate.
