A Chat with Mindful: Executive Function & Behavior Coaching
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We give children the tools to train their own brains. We strongly believe that every child, regardless of learning or behavior challenges, has potential. Students come to our office to exercise critical executive functioning skills the same way they would go to a gym to exercise muscles.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Our computer-based brain exercise program was developed in a neurocognitive research lab by Yale professor and senior research scientist Bruce Weller, MD. Computers, headphones and kinesthetic equipment are provided in our office. Students are only required to bring an open mind.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The conception of Mindful grew out of the frustration we experienced while watching children we work with struggle to learn. Many of the programs in place still treat learning difficulties as lifelong impediments. However, developments in brain science tell a different story.
What do you love most about your job?
We love watching children strengthen their brains and change their mindset for success. Our program doesn't only change the brain, but it teaches children to be mindful of their behaviors and presence around others. It is a very gratifying job and one we are thankful to have!
