About Us

About Turnaround for Children: Turnaround 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. The organization was founded in 2002 around the insight that the daily experiences in children's lives have profound effects on their development and learning. Trauma is one form of context that disrupts development and learning, because of its effects on the developing brain. Though accepted in the medical field, this knowledge has not yet permeated education. Turnaround is working to close this gap by building the capacities of educators to buffer the negative impacts of adversity and intentionally promote healthy development and academic achievement for every student.

Turnaround has made a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in every aspect of our work. We stand with those who experience racial violence and oppression. Our commitment is to contribute to the disruption and ultimate eradication of structural racism and oppression in and beyond the education system.
