Discovery in Schools
Students who participate in the program receive regular sessions of educational therapy in individual sessions or in a small group setting from a trained NILD Educational Therapist. One of our private practice therapists can come to your school to provide the therapy OR you can send one of your teachers to be trained in our courses.
The Discovery in Schools Program does not replace, but rather enhances the Resource or Learning Support specialists within your school. The success of this program lies within its neurodevelopmental techniques, focusing on strengthening the neurological pathways in the brain bringing efficiency to cognitive brain functioning.
Benefits of the Discovery in Schools Program:
We have had an NILD Educational Therapist operate her private practice in our school for the past 5 years. Having the Discovery in Schools therapy program readily available in the building during school hours has made it a viable option for students needing additional support. The therapist is a helpful member at our team meetings when reviewing a student’s progress. Offering this therapy has introduced new families to Immanuel; giving them renewed hope for their child’s learning.
