What is Educational Therapy?

The goal of N.I.L.D. Educational Therapy® is to help students develop tools of independent learning in the classroom and in life. N.I.L.D. Educational Therapy® was developed to treat assumed, underlying causes of learning difficulties rather than simply treating the symptoms.

Techniques emphasize reasoning skills in areas such as:

Reading

Writing

Students are taught by educational therapists, who are trained specifically in N.I.L.D. methodology and receive on-going graduate-level training leading to N.I.L.D. certification. Regular collaboration between the educational therapist, parents and classroom teachers is encouraged in order to assess progress and appropriately adjust educational programs for each student.

Not filling up a bucket... but LIGHTING A FIRE!

It is the process of discovery that engages the learner and teaches. This is what lights the fire of learning!

Getting good grades is great, but becoming a better “thinker” is an indispensable life skill. It goes with a student beyond school, and also enables them to access many non-academic opportunities. Educational therapy not only prepares students to experience academic success, but to thrive in life.

How does Educational Therapy differ from standard tutoring?

How does Educational Therapy differ from standard tutoring?

Tutoring is centered around subjects in school and re-teaching concepts that are curriculum-based. “What to think.”

Educational Therapy is centered around all the way kids learn and involves perception, reasoning and the application of knowledge. “How to think.”

It is like the difference between following the directions on a microwave package vs. being able to create a unique recipe, plan and prepare a meal from scratch!

We believe learning should…

Kindle Curiosity (cause questioning)

Fire Up Critical Thinking (stimulate cognitive processes)

Incite Persistence (challenge weaknesses)

Inspire Creative Thought (promote self-reliance)

Encourage Transference (connect to life)
