Mind in the Making (MITM), is an unprecedented effort to share the science of children’s learning with families and professionals who work with children. Based on extensive research, MITM has identified seven evidence-based essential life skills that every child needs. These skills are called life skills because of their powerful potential to help children succeed socially, emotionally and intellectually in the short- and long-term. These are skills that every adult can teach and every child can learn. Recommended for parents of and staff working with children ages birth-8.Registration is required, and space is limited.
