NILD Research Update: Pathways & Projections
Various key stakeholders with interest in student outcomes want to know what is inside the “black box” of treatment. Peering into this “black box” provides insight into the mechanisms underlying why a treatment approach is effective. Outcomes from specific student populations with various learning differences highlight the efficacy of NILD’s methodological approach. NILD certification training provides the pathway for educators to become equipped to implement the research-informed distinctives of the NILD Educational Therapy intervention approach. Additionally, NILD’s certification training significantly impacts educators’ knowledge, beliefs, and instructional practices. Ongoing collaboration with internal and external research partners projects the message of NILD’s program efficacy and credibility to expanded audiences. Goals/objectives of this session include:
- Review the Theory of Change for the NILD Educational Therapy model.
- Highlight student and NILD Educational Therapist outcomes.
- Discuss research on the horizon.
- Call for action!
