Who

Brain Talk is designed to be used by therapists, teachers, and parents/caregivers. Each unit provides instructors with all necessary background information, materials, and discussion points to effectively deliver the curriculum for their target age group.

Where

Brain Talk serves as a foundational introduction for many curricula that target mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and social-emotional learning. The curriculum can be easily incorporated into classrooms, therapy/counseling sessions, social groups, and other learning opportunities.

Why

Supported by research showing the metacognition, or thinking about our thinking, plays a critical role in successful decision making and learning, the Brain Talk curriculum teaches students how to be more aware of the connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Brain Talk is a superb new online tool that presents the essence of applied executive function in the most powerful, economic way I've ever seen. I'm in; it's the tool I've been wishing for!
-Carolyn Edwards, M.Ed., Educational Therapist & Director of Turning Point Educational Services

Brain Talk’s video clips are fun for kids and easy for parents, therapists and teachers to pick up and use. As a therapist who supports students with social regulation challenges I am grateful for this innovative, practical and powerful curriculum!

Brain Talk turns something that is so complex into something coherent, and it should be a fundamental resource that everyone considers when teaching emotional-regulation, executive functioning, and mindfulness.

Wow! I love this program! The vocabulary "doer" is such an important word in our class; I have used it so many times since the introduction to remind my students that they need to be in charge of their actions and think before doing.

I started using Brain Talk with my fifth graders; not only do they love it, but I love teaching it! As we met for our most recent lesson I heard students saying, "Boy did I have a Myg Moment this weekend!" The students are so excited and engaged!
