About The Howard Institute

The mission of The Howard Institute is to share knowledge in a collaborative manner, melding research and practice. Through our summer offerings, consulting and customized classes, The Howard Institute shares best practices with the greater Atlanta education community, impacting students throughout the area. To date, 25+ area schools have participated in our school consultations and/or summer offerings, and have given positive feedback!

Our interactive workshops are designed for all teachers interested in responding to current research in neuroscience, executive functions, assistive technology, mathematics and language acquisition. Participants work collaboratively with fellow participants to interpret and apply content to their own lessons and units, and leave with materials they can use immediately in the classroom.

For more information about scheduling a Howard Institute school workshop or consultation, please contact Dr. Scott Hamilton at (404) 377-7436 ext. 242, or shamilton@howardschool.org
