  • Consists of four weeks of online work followed by one week of classroom instruction (residency). Note that the online portion of the course is hosted by either Regent University or Southeastern University (SEU).

However, both universities offer a graduate credit option for NILD Levels I, II and III courses and Master’s Degree Programs in NILD Educational Therapy that do require a separate enrollment process (click the link for more information).
