Comprehensive Cognitive and Academic Intervention for All Learning Skills
NILD Educational Therapy® was developed to treat assumed, underlying causes of learning difficulties rather than simply treating the symptoms. It is a true therapy in that it aims the academic intervention just above the student’s level of functioning and processing and raises expectations for performance. Students are trained to view themselves as competent, confident learners. The goal of NILD Educational Therapy®, offered in Columbia or via telehealth by Discovery Therapies, is to help students develop tools of independent learning in the classroom and in life. Educational Therapists are trained specifically in NILD methodology and receive on-going graduate level training leading to NILD certification.
Students of all ages in NILD Educational Therapy® receive an average of two sessions of intensive educational therapy per week, either 40-60-80 minutes each. Small groups are available as 80 minute sessions. These sessions include a variety of techniques designed to address students’ specific areas of difficulty and to improve their overall ability to think, reason, and process information. Techniques emphasize basic skill areas such as reading, writing, spelling, and math; applying reasoning skills within each area. Our NILD therapists help students address the underlying issues of their learning challenges every day.
