NILD Educational Therapy helps children develop clear, efficient thinking. Using inductive reasoning and socratic questioning, students discover answers for themselves and enhance critical thinking skills. Strategies are provided to approach specific learning weaknesses in the areas of reading, writing, math, and higher level thinking skills. NILD Educational Therapy fosters a growth mindset and motivation for learning. Students develop learning skills and build academic fluency, becoming confident, competent learners.

This program is ideal for children who have difficulty with higher order processing skills, verbal and written expression, as well as auditory and visual processing.

Our policy for NILD Educational Therapy is to provide a minimum of two sessions per week per semester. Research shows that the frequency of at least two sessions per week is needed for students to maximize the benefits of 1:1 remediation.

This depends on what the learning issues are. We work “as fast as we can and as slow as we need to.” Our goal is to build your child’s skills in reading, writing, math, and executive functioning so that they gain the confidence to take on academic challenges.
