Finding academic help for a child with ADHD can be challenging...

Identifying the right type of help a child might need, or the available resources can be overwhelming. It's difficult seeing a child struggle and even more difficult seeing solutions not work.

There is still a lot of misinformation and stigma surrounding attentional issues impacting academics, including ADHD and ADD, making it challenging to find accurate information and support. Educators can be overwhelmed and under-resourced with the learning needs of ADHD students in their classroom.

How is NILD's approach to ADHD different?

At NILD, our educational therapies target the root issues of ADHD, helping learners develop confidence in the classroom and preparing them to succeed in life.

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

"From a therapeutic level, I understand how ADHD is directly tied to executive functions.  I care about how my students think, not just what they need to know. That's a philosophical foundation for how we look at educational therapy with NILD."

"Today, kids brains are developing with a lot of instant gratification from technology, which doesn’t require much critical thinking. NILD educational therapies can help kids become critical thinkers."

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 tradional tutoring. Tutoring often focuses only on sunject 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 process, teaching students how to think independently.

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