  • 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). Even though these courses are hosted on Regent and SEU online platforms you do not need to enroll in these universities. 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).
  • Through NILD’s range of courses and workshops you can obtain continuing education credits as you seek to meet the needs of your students. Additionally, NILD Level I, II and III courses can put you on track for becoming a Professionally Certified NILD Educational Therapist (PCET)! Click here for steps to certification.
