FundaMentals of Mind, Educational Consulting, LLC creates and administers individualized, brain-informed, intervention programs for students struggling in traditional settings. The primary goal of educational therapy is to foster self-confident, independent learners who understand their learning profiles and can advocate for themselves.

Programs are designed to meet organizational needs and to help participants gain a greater understanding of the value of integrating current educational neuroscience, educational therapy techniques and cognition training exercises when working with all learners.  We strive to provide a knowledgeable resource for administrators, curriculum specialists, teachers, parents and community members who want to better understand these techniques and how they apply to the work they do.

FundaMentals of Mind, LLC has been committed to developing minds and a deeper understanding of the ways that neuroscience influences education, business and families since 2009.
