NILD Educational Therapy

What is it and how will my child benefit?

The International Dyslexia Association recognised NILD for meeting IDA’s Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.

We believe that all students can learn and that the brain can be modified at all stages of development through mediation.

At Blossoming To Potential we are highly trained NILD Educational therapists who went through rigorous graduate-level courses. We are mentored and participate in professional development. We are passionate, skilled, empathetic, seek to strengthen cognitive weaknesses, instil confidence and competence, and transform struggling learners into lifelong learners.

Who is a candidate for this programme?

Students who have trouble in the following areas: Poor spelling, illegible handwriting, inability to express thoughts verbally or in writing, slow processing speed, poor working memory, inefficient executive functions, difficulty with reading and maths.

What is the ages we take?

The NILD techniques are effective regardless of age and can be adapted to all levels of functioning.

We cater for younger children ages 6 to 10 and older children ages 11 to 13.

How long are classes?

Individualised educational therapy is given weekly  in 30 minute slots for younger children and 1 hour slots for older children.
