NILD Telepractice Workshop (online)

The 2-hour NILD Telepractice Workshop will demonstrate how the NILD Level I (or higher) Educational Therapist can deliver educational therapy services through a reliable and interactive online platform (Zoom). Maintaining the standards and procedures of each educational therapy session is crucial, so this training will focus on specific guidelines for how the integrity of NILD techniques can be maintained in a virtual setting. Therapists will see a demonstration of techniques to learn how to deliver sessions with the same accuracy as face-to-face. The entire training takes place online using the Zoom video-conferencing platform, allowing therapists to experience firsthand this user-friendly and interactive format.

This workshop is designed to instruct participants how to effectively provide NILD Teletherapy with the same accuracy as face-to-face and how to use this NILD/Zoom teletherapy platform. An NILD Teletherapist License is required to actually use the teletherapy platform. This license is not included with the workshop but requires an additional purchase.

  • They have difficulty finding a trained ET in their area
  • The student is home-bound
  • They live in a remote location
  • They live out-of-country

  • Increased reach
  • Continue working with a student whose family moves
  • Increased availability time
  • Can be used to meet with teachers/administrators during an IEP meeting
  • Can be used to review Individualized Therapy Plans with Parents (a PPT with a summary of the Psycho-Educational Evaluation is very effective)
  • User-friendly with intuitive menu options and simple controls
  • Ample training and support available through our online platform’s (Zoom) website

The workshop is delivered LIVE over the internet.
