The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Our teams work every day to deliver the highest standards of care, advance the science of the developing brain and empower parents, professionals and policymakers to support children when and where they need it most. 

The Backpack Connection Series

The Backpack Connection Series was created by TACSEI to provide a way for teachers and caregivers to work together to help young children develop social emotional skills and reduce challenging behavior.

Behavior Babe:

Behavior analysis owes no affiliation with a particular intervention. Rather, it is a scientific problem-solving approach aimed at producing socially significant behavior changes for the purpose of improving the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities.  

Dr. Ross Greene:

We have some ideas. Ideas about how behaviorally challenging kids should be understood and about how to treat them in ways that are more compassionate and effective. Ideas about treating all kids in ways that are non-punitive, non-adversarial, and collaborative, and that teach them skills on the better side of human nature. And ideas about how to advocate to change things for the better. Get to know us!
