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

Dyscalculia, which refers to difficulty with Math and number related skills and understanding, can be challenging to recognize and diagnose, especially compared to more visible learning differences. Obtaining specialized instruction and support for a child who struggles with numbers can also prove to be difficult.

The emotional impact of Dyscalculia is significant for both the child and their family, with students experiencing frustration, anxiety, and low self-esteem as they grapple with math concepts. Parents may also feel helpless and worried about their child's academic future.

How is NILD's approach to Dyscalculia different?

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

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

Learn how NILD helps students overcome challenges by developing new thinking and learning patterns.
