Why Give to NILD Canada?

Thousands of students across Canada wake up each morning facing their personal learning struggle, trying to keep up with their peers but sinking in the process. We, at NILD Canada, are committed to offering hope and help for students that learn differently. Not everyone is born with an efficient, effective cognitive system, but ALL learners can be empowered to increase the capacities to think, learn, reason and remember.

NILD-trained therapists go beyond tutoring and use techniques that integrate aspects of cognitive and strategy development, reasoning, and oral language proficiency within the framework of learning basic skills in primary academics, such as reading, writing, and mathematics.

More than 100,000 children around the world have been through NILD’s program in the past 40 years.


David Hinshaw was one of the first. He struggled with a learning disability in elementary school and says

Two years of NILD educational therapy trained me to think critically and prepared me for success today in the global arena of communications technology sales. NILD changed my life!

We invite you to partner with NILD Canada today to deploy its critical initiatives and leave a momentous legacy to help both children and adults who struggle to learn. Your gift will enable us to offer hope to parents, to expand our programs across the country, to train more educators, and to provide ongoing support to therapists.

The need is great! The opportunity to give is now!
