Project Pause is an innovative mindfulness training curriculum designed to empower all students, especially those diagnosed with ADHD and other learning disabilities. Simply by becoming aware of their thoughts, students will develop improved executive function and self-regulation skills. They will come to understand that who they are–their value as individuals–is different than the thoughts and impulses flying around in their heads. Through this fun mindfulness training workshop, students will have the power and tools needed to make better choices in life.
