NILD Group Educational Therapy Course

NILD Group Educational Therapy Course
Have you ever wondered if the power of NILD educational therapy could be multiplied? NILD Group Educational Therapy™, GET, is an effective way to harness the dynamic of one-on-one and multiply the effectiveness through group intervention.

NILD educational therapists are taught how to adapt and implement the five core techniques in small group work for four to six students per group. Developing peer mediation enhances students’ self-regulation skills, facilitates social learning and cooperation abilities, and promotes interactive language among peers. With GET, the power of the NILD intervention is multiplied.  You can reach more students and lower the cost to families for this intervention!
