It's becoming more difficult for schools to support the needs of every learner.

Without the right training and resources, your school is ill-equipped to meet those needs.

Every student in your school deserves to graduate equipped with the skills to succeed in life, and we are here to help make this possible in your school.

What makes NILD different?

What we provide is not curriculum or tutoring - it is an Educational Therapy System that focuses on the whole child: cognition, perception, academics, and emotions.

Established in 1973 with a Rich Christian Heritage

NILD has trained 10,000+ educators and helped 100,000+ children become confident, independent learners.

In 1973 Grace Mutzabaugh, the founder of NILD, launched the inaugural program for struggling learners at Norfolk Christian schools. By 1982 demand for educational therapy was growing, and the Norfolk Institute for Learning Disabilities (NILD) was formed.

NILD is more than traditional tutoring. Tutoring often focuses only on subject matter content, while NILD's therapies use subject matter as the learning vehicle to develop cognition and confidence.

We focus on root learning issues, helping learners overcome these issues by developing new learning paths. Our innovative educational therapies build efficient learning processes, teaching students how to think independently.

Our process focuses on the whole child: cognition, perception, academics, and emotions.

By developing these four key components, students more effectively overcome their limitations and thrive in the classroom.

"The Rx Discovery Reading Program is a much needed program to help us reach those students who are continuing to struggle as we strive to help them meet personal, school, and state reading goals."
