With NILD’s unique methodology, we fundamentally change the way a person thinks, so that he or she can succeed in any environment. Our techniques help to re-train the brain and stimulate areas of weakness in processing, memory, attention, language and math. We provide individualized and intensive intervention, teaching ‘how to learn’ rather than ‘what to learn’.
We know that the brain is malleable and elastic and can physically change in response to stimulus and grow new neuronal connections.
This means that the brains of students with learning disabilities can become more efficient by strengthening neurological pathways.
Intensive and individualized NILD educational therapy works by stimulating and thereby strengthening neurological pathways and improving the brain’s learning capacity.
“Should it be more data, units, or tests? Let me remind you that many of the things you teach today will soon be obsolete! Only brains that can adapt and change themselves will ensure the continuation of our culture.” Dr. Feuerstein (from Endangered Minds, Jane Healy, 1999)
Research has proven the important connection between our body and our brain. Through Rhythmic Writing, a core NILD Technique, we improve cognitive functioning. The ability to sustain focus becomes heightened. Positive changes in everything from increased attention to intellectual capacity and even handwriting are visible.
Rhythmic writing is one of the key components of NILD Educational Therapy. With this powerful technique, we combine kinesthetic, tactile, visual and auditory modalities to connect the body and the brain. Just as a mind can be stretched by an idea, the dynamic changes that result from our approach indicate improved brain functioning.
Children need a great start in life, especially when it comes to learning! SEARCH and TEACH is an early identification and intervention program designed to meet the educational needs of young learners (5+6 year olds) before they experience the frustration of learning failure.
This program is two-fold: it helps identify potential learning difficulties and then sets up an enrichment program to address those issues. Search and Teach prepares young minds for success.
