Search and Teach Training


The goal of the Search and teach® programme is to identify 5- to 7-year-old individuals who are vulnerable to learning failure and to address the issues before failure has occurred.

The SEARCH AND TEACH® model was developed by Drs. A. A. Silver, MD and R. A. Hagin Ph.D. at New York University in the 1960’s. Deborah Zimmerman, co-founder of NILD, worked on the development of this programme, and today NILD offers SEARCH & TEACH training in North and South America, South East Asia, India, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Many SEARCH AND TEACH practitioners across the globe can attest to the value of this programme. In 1979 the programme was validated by the Joint Dissemination Panel of the US Department of Education by being included in their prestigious “Education Programs that Work”.
