Does your Child Struggle to Keep Up in School?

There is hope!

     Sometimes a seemingly ordinary child, for no apparent reason, will struggle more than his or her peers with learning. Your child is not alone. Do they have memory problems, or poor reading or writing fluency?  Are they having difficulty understanding and carrying out verbal or written instruction?  Is handwriting illegible or do they have trouble putting thoughts on paper? Is keeping up in class or at home a constant battle or discouragement?  There is hope!

The brain is not static. It can develop and improve through training. Whatever your child's abilities may be, the specialized learning exercises used in educational therapy can help your student gain confidence and success in their learning environment.  Learning is more enjoyable and rewarding for a student who is succeeding.

People with learning differences often have average to superior intelligence, but falter in academics. The National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) has built a unique, one-on-one, tailor-made, language based program that aims to help students overcome their cognitive weaknesses.

It's never too late to start strengthening your student's mind with NILD educational therapy.  However, early intervention will enable them to make the most of their years in school and build a strong foundation for the future.

 

If your child has difficulty with memory, reading, writing fluency, or understanding auditory or visual instruction, then NILD educational therapy can help them.  See the check list below to see if this program might help your student.

Development

​The National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) has been an educational resource organization for over 40 years.  Their language based, individualized method of educational help is supported by science. A large variety of specific exercises have been developed that when used by a certified therapist can take a student struggling with an area of weakness, and retrain their brain to turn the weakness into an area of strength.  The goal of NILD educational therapy is to guide students in developing new strategies for independent learning in all areas of academics and life. NILD also trains and certifies educational therapists who use NILD developed 

exercises to work with students around the country, and the world.

Learning does not have to be a daily battle.
