Key Components of
NILD Educational Therapy

The focus of our one-on-one and small-group, individualized interventions is to address the underlying causes of learning difficulties, rather than simply treating the symptoms as tutoring does.

NILD educational therapy is a true therapy in that it aims the intervention just above the student’s current level of functioning and raises expectations for performance, which creates the framework to foster that growth.

NILD therapy students become competent, confident learners. They gain mastery over their cognitive vulnerabilities and hone their cognitive strengths for success in the classroom and in life.
