National Institute for Learning Development - NILD

Overview of Educational Therapy Training

NILD offers a broad range of training options for educational therapists and educators serving students with learning disabilities and challenges.  NILD’s training methods are accredited by the International Dyslexia Association and The Feuerstein Institute.

These courses and professional development opportunities qualify for continuing education units (CEUs). NILD requires NILD Professionally Certified Educational Therapists (PCETs) to complete specified professional development requirements to maintain annual certification. NILD also awards CEUs to individuals who are not educational therapists but who have participated in an NILD learning opportunity such as a course, workshop or online webinar. NILD issues certificates of participation with the associated hours of instruction for individuals to use as evidence of completion of continuing education requirements for their individual schools and/or certification organizations.

Overview

NILD offers several courses and workshops to help educators understand and meet the needs of students with learning challenges of all kinds.  Our training methods are research-based, effective and are accredited by the International Dyslexia Association and The Feuerstein Institute.
