Turnaround for Children's picture

Turnaround for Children 

Turnaround for Children distills scientific knowledge about how children develop and learn into integrated tools, resources and strategies for educators, school leaders and school systems—all designed to establish the conditions and adult practices that drive learning and growth. 

Turnaround was founded in 2002 by child and adolescent psychiatrist Pamela Cantor, M.D. on the idea that the daily experiences in children's lives, including adverse experiences, have profound effects on their development and learning, including the disruption to health, mood, behavior, skill development and learning caused by trauma. Today, Turnaround builds the capacities of every adult to buffer the negative impacts of adversity and intentionally promote healthy development and learning for every student.
