About The Howard Institute

The mission of The Howard Institute is to share knowledge in a collaborative manner that melds research and practice. Through our summer offerings, consulting and customized classes, The Howard Institute shares best practices with the greater Atlanta education community, which impacts students throughout the area. To date, more than 25 area schools have participated in our school consultations and/or summer offerings, and have given very 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 their fellow participants to interpret and apply the content to their own lessons and units, and leave with materials they can use immediately in their classes.
