Supporting today's neurodiverse student has become more challenging...

Many educators and specialists today are ill-equipped to meet the increased demand to support students with various learning challenges.

Not having the tools to make a lasting impact is frustrating and overwhelming.

With NILD, every teacher has access to research-backed tools that help all students thrive and become successful independent learners.

What makes NILD different?

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

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
