Who is NILD for?

NILD therapies are designed for specialists, teachers, tutors, parents, and administrators working with students who have diverse learning needs.

General Education Teachers

NILD professional development enhances classroom teachers' instructional practices to improve the thinking and learning of all students.  

Education Specialists

NILD training equips education specialists to provide research-proven approaches to strengthen the cognitive and academic skills of learners with learning differences.

"NILD is a dedicated group of highly trained educational therapists who recognize the learning potential of every child."

Nancy M.

"We sought solutions beyond traditional tutoring. Before, what we were doing for students was just giving them more school, more information. It was an exercise in futility because they have to learn differently,' explains Cook. “NILD's focus on cognitive change aligned with our desire for a lasting impact."

What is the National Institute for Learning Development?

Since 1973, NILD has trained 10,000+ educators and helped 100,000+ children become confident, independent learners.

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
