Our Mission:

Our mission is to help children with learning and behavioral difficulties lead happier and more productive lives. The Mindful Youth Institute researches, develops, and distributes knowledge and teaching strategies for mindfulness interventions that increase self-regulation, academic performance, and social-emotional learning (SEL).

For many years, interventions for students with learning difficulties have focused on their deficits—things that are hard for these students to do. A more effective and innovative approach to intervention is to build on the unique strengths of these children, encouraging them to develop creativity, mindfulness, compassion, and visuospatial strengths to help them remediate their challenges (Positive Education).

We are primarily interested in how these interventions affect brain development and behavior.
