RX FOR DISCOVERY WRITING: STANDARD WORKSHOP
Rx for Discovery Writing: Standard is a lecture and laboratory workshop designed to train teachers to provide written language intervention in a group setting. Rx for Discovery Writing: Standard is specifically intended for students in grades 4-12 whose basic written expression skills are below expected standards as determined by a local educational agency.
Rx for Discovery Writing: Standard will build and strengthen grammar and writing mechanics, semantics, syntax, and composition writing skills with an emphasis on the writing process
SPELLING: LINKING READING & WRITING
Spelling abilities link to both reading and writing. Spelling is one of the most sensitive indicators of a learning disability and can be one of the most challenging abilities for students with dyslexia to develop. Many educational therapists are frustrated when they don't see a meaningful change in their students' spelling scores at annual testing time and want to find ways to improve their mediation. NILD’s newest workshop, Spelling: Linking Reading & Writing, enhances educators’ ability to develop students' concepts of spelling, understand spelling misconceptions, evaluate students' writing samples, and use a multi-modal structured literacy approach to building students' spelling abilities.
SEARCH AND TEACH© WORKSHOP
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.
GEOCLOCK FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOP©
The GeoClock Fundamentals training is a didactic and practicum workshop designed to reinforce and strengthen mathematical concepts in students Grades K-2. Participants will be introduced to the neurological nature of temporal and spatial orientation and will discover ways to assist students in strengthening these inner senses. Research relating temporal and spatial orientation to mathematics outcomes will be presented. Participants will explore the GeoClock, an educational tool, and method that assists in the development of cognitive and perceptual skills and encourages divergent thinking. Practicum time will be devoted to the creation of GeoClock lessons that can be used with educational therapy.
NILD TELEPRACTICE II WORKSHOP

The entire training takes place online using the Zoom video-conferencing platform, allowing therapists to experience firsthand this user-friendly and interactive format.
