When children are struggling with emotional, behavioral and learning challenges, teachers are often the first ones to detect a problem. The Child Mind Institute is committed to helping educators identify and respond effectively to children with signs of a mental health or learning disorder. And since behavioral issues can disrupt learning for the whole class, we offer strategies that have been shown to help kids behave successfully — making the learning environment better for everyone.
