Decades of research indicates the value of a “preventive” approach to dealing with potential learning problems in the future. NILD Canada provides help for young students (K – Grade 2) through an early identification and intervention program called Search and Teach. This program is geared to meet the needs of young learners that you teach before they experience the frustration of learning failure.

Here is a testimonial from a teacher who is using the Search and Teach program in her school.
Being the Resource Teacher trained in Search and Teach, I was able to support the Kindergarten and Grade One teacher with a tool for identifying children who may be struggling in learning to read. Usually this identification step (called ‘Search’) was the information the teacher needs to confirm her concerns in the beginning of the school year. The whole class was scanned so that children could be grouped to learn skills that they needed. Together we planned a program for individual’s intervention through the use of the TEACH part of the Search and Teach kit. Another benefit of having the program in the school is that I could train an EA to do some of the tasks with the students, and additional support and training was available all year long. It was a team approach, which always benefits a child.
We encourage you to sign up for this valuable course that will benefit your early learners and steer them on the road to success!
