FocusedKids was founded by a clinical child and family therapist. After seeing the power of how children thought and felt about themselves once they learned what was going on in their brain, they began to feel less shame about their behavior and more hope and empowerment about who they were. This became the first step for change and healing for them. FocusedKids moved into a classroom setting following the work of programs such as MindUp. 10 years later- FocusedKids serves over 2500 students and 300 plus teachers.
