Search and Teach© Workshop

Search and Teach© Workshop

A “teachable moment” with Susie Prevette and Earlene Willis – Search and Teach© instructors

Research indicates the value of a “preventive” approach to deal with potential learning problems in the future. The National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) meets this challenge through its SEARCH & TEACH practitioners workshop. This workshop will enable educators to assess and as needed provide intervention services for young students grades K-2.

NILD offers training in SEARCH & TEACH©, an early identification and intervention program developed to meet the educational needs of young learners before they experience the frustration of learning failure.

SEARCH & TEACH© was developed by Archie A. Silver, M.D. (child psychiatrist) and Rosa A. Hagin, Ph.D. (psychologist) and the staff of the Learning Disorders Unit at New York University School of Medicine. It is based on extensive interdisciplinary research on the diagnosis and treatment of learning disorders and is now being implemented in diverse school settings throughout the U.S. Read Dr. Hagin’s article and find out why Search and Teach© is a powerful tool for identifying and preventing various problems in young children.

For over 15 years, NILD in partnership with Drs. Silver and Hagin has taught nearly 1,000 educators how to implement this powerful program for early childhood assessment and intervention. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be equipped to fully implement both SEARCH and TEACH components.

SEARCH, a 20-minute individual test designed to identify 5 and 6-year-olds vulnerable to learning difficulty, provides profiles of individual strengths and weaknesses in the foundational skills necessary for reading success. TEACH, a program of 55 learning tasks, was carefully developed and tested during a four-year investigation of pre-reading skills to address the needs revealed by SEARCH. It is an individualized program, but does allow for some small group work of review activities with children of similar needs.
