Mindprint was started by a husband and wife team, Eric and Nancy Weinstein, after navigating a frustrating process trying to help their struggling 3rd grade daughter. They were both former Wall Street bankers, and Nancy also had experience working with start-ups.
At the time, Nancy was a stay-at-home mom. As she describes it, “my daughter’s grades were good, but we had this superb teacher who felt she was struggling with something and just wanted to unlock her potential.’” The Weinsteins took their daughter for a psycho-educational evaluation. They found the process to be expensive, time consuming and frustrating in so many ways. So did their daughter. Then they had their “aha” moment.
Fast forward four years and Mindprint Learning now provides confidential, educational assessments of comparable quality at a fraction of the time and cost of the Weinsteins’ own experience. Mindprint uses a scientifically valid, web-based assessment developed by the Brain Behavior Lab at Penn Medicine under an NIH-sponsored grant. The Weinsteins believe there is no equivalent solution for children anywhere else.
Almost any child age 8-21 can be assessed in one hour at a cost of $199. In addition to accurate identification of children’s learning strengths and needs, Mindprint also provides specific, customized recommendations to each child. These actionable strategies can be used at home to improve homework efficiency and improve test grades. If there are signs of a learning or attention issue, Mindprint will recommend parents see a psychologist or other specialist. Otherwise, parents have specific, easy-to-follow suggestions to help a child with study skills and ways for a teacher to provide extra support at school. As Eric explains, “each child is different. Our experts make certain that the recommendations reflect the specific needs of the individual. “
Mindprint Learning is available online for purchase by parents. Schools and tutors can email the company to learn more about their enterprise solutions.
