Mission: All Kinds of Minds is a nonprofit organization that translates groundbreaking research from neuroscience on how children learn – and vary in their learning – into a powerful framework and set of strategies that help teachers help more students learn and thrive. Our work is grounded in three core components: A learning framework – All Kinds of Minds has synthesized a framework of science-based learning “constructs” that form the mind’s ingredients for learning. This framework provides educators with a foundation of expertise about learning. Classroom applications – We promote a problem-solving model that encourages educators to use observations and other types of data – gathered from multiple sources – to help them identify students’ learning assets, passions and affinities, as well as their weaknesses. We have developed a variety of tools and processes designed to help educators apply the problem-solving model to their practice. A philosophy – We advocate a set of core beliefs about how all students should be treated, stemming from our conviction that learning differences represent variation, not deviation.

Results: Understanding how students learn is our specialty. Giving educators the knowledge to assure that students learn is our mission. Our Impact: • More than 48,000 educators trained • More than 5,000 schools • More than 1,000,000 students reached

Target demographics: Educators including teachers and administrators, education policy makers and thought leaders
