Improving Young Children's Adaptive Skills and Behaviour Through MindUP

In this comparison study, we evaluated the impact of MindUP on kindergarten students' social, emotional and adaptive behavioural skills. Overall, students who received MindUP programming demonstrated noticeable improvement in all five outcome areas.  Specifically, researchers found a reduction in behavioural problems, a reduction in externalizing problems, a reduction in internalizing problems, an increase in adaptive skills and a reduction in executive functioning deficits.
