About Mindprint Learning
Mindprint Learning’s cognitive screening and learning platform provides a significant enhancement to existing personalized learning solutions for the general education classroom. The Mindprint assessment analyzes each child’s strengths and weaknesses on the underlying skills required to process and remember new information. This analysis drives links to specific instruction and supplementary resources for each learner. Cognitive assessments have been the most reliable way to understand how a child learns, as opposed to what they know, for over a century. We enable educators to reap the benefits of the latest research on early intervention, metacognition, and neuroscience to help all students learn more successfully.
