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

Dyslexia can be difficult to diagnose because recognizing the signs of Dyslexia can be subtle. And once diagnosed, it can be hard to find qualified professionals with specialized instruction and support for helping a child read.

Dyslexia can have a significant emotional impact on both the child and their family. Students struggl;e with confidence and self-esteem, and parents struggle with feelings of helplessness as they try to support their child's learning.

How is NILD's approach to Dyslexia different?

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

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

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

"Our school is for kids with dyslexia, and we brought NILD to the school as an additional service that we can provide students to help remediate some of those cognitive weaknesses that our students might have."

Suzanne H.
NILD Educational Therapist

"NILD always begins with baseline testing. And then at the end of every school year, we retest them for two reasons: one to track their progress, two, it informs future intervention.  After one school year of working with a young man with dyslexia, he gained more than seven grade levels in his written expression skills. I know I always expect progress, but I thought, surely I scored that wrong.  So I took his test out and I rechecked all of my work. And I was right, he had gained SEVEN grade levels in one year for his written expression."

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.

By developing these four key components, students more effectively overcome their limitations and thrive in the classroom.
