NILD exists to serve students of all ages to develop their cognitive and academic abilities. Over the past 40 years, NILD has developed instructional strategies to develop students’ thinking and learning ability and to assist students to become more effective learners. NILD trains educators of all capacities throughout the world to implement these strategies in their own communities. Recent studies have shown that 62% of students who utilize NILD's educational therapy show statistically significant gains in their IQs. NILD not only believes that everyone can learn but also that focused effort with a student can unlock a lifetime of potential. Donations help us continue to develop new instuctional strategies and materials as well as scholarships to help provide educational therapy to students in need.
