NILD’s mission is to train educators to be a transformational influence on teaching and learning processes, in order to promote cognitive modifiability among learners. We believe individuals can become life-long learners, not just better able to “make the grade.” Instead of adapting the learning environment to a student’s unique learning struggles, we seek to change the way a person thinks so that he or she can succeed in any environment. Rather than accommodating the weak cognitive connections, we strengthen them. We believe in the God-given potential for cognitive modifiability. Cognitive modifiability, produced through mediated learning experiences, increases an individual’s capacity to learn by developing cognitive functions. By actually modifying the way the brain functions, the structure and process of learning is changed. The cognitive impact NILD methodology has on the brain results from the techniques used by educators and their ability as mediators to modify students’ cognitive processes. NILD’s brain-based learning programs facilitate students’ critical and creative thinking processes and prepares them to succeed.

NILD trains and equips educators to address students’ learning abilities through a comprehensive approach as illustrated in the NILD logo above. Each of the four elements contained in the NILD logo uniquely and permanently addresses the needs of learners. NILD’s holistic approach to learning builds thinking and changes behavior. Students' confidence and competency is improved. Educators are better equipped to be agents of renewal. NILD educational therapists enable students to become active participants in their own learning. Individual potential is unlocked and students’ horizons are expanded. By equipping teachers to teach students how to learn, students emerge as stronger learners, more capable future employees, family members, responsible citizens, and contributors to Kingdom work.
