Open Mind School
To cultivate the learning of a diverse student population, OMS makes curriculum for different learners accessible. We apply a multi-sensory, project-based curriculum that aligns with California state content standards. The curriculum emphasizes enrichment activities and technology as the link binding all learners together. Our high adult-to-child ratio allows for program individualization and appropriate social facilitation. Open Mind’s trans-disciplinary model allows varying specialists to train staff on best practice interventions pertaining to their field. We closely track progress and apply research from current neuroscience and educationally-based procedures.
Social Innovation Lab
We are a data-driven user-experience design lab that specializes in incubating accessibility-based projects. Housed within our k-12 inclusion school, projects have access to a diverse group of students practiced in giving valuable feedback and contributions.
Open Mind Center for Brain & Behavior
We provide an inclusive environment with a focus on meeting the needs of each individual student in homes, community programs, and supporting schools and organizations on accessibility and inclusive environment building.
Bay Area Specialfit
Special-Fit is based on principles of human movement, human capacity, and physical literacy while taking into consideration individual differences. This includes differences in age, physical thresholds, neurological diversity, behavioral challenges, socio-emotional development, communication and learning styles, motivation, and everything else that makes us unique as human beings.
Servant Leader Organization
Open Minds, Silicon Valley seeks to eradicate social isolation in the K-12 school system. School and community agencies can often be large, complex, powerful, impersonal systems that lose sight of having those they serve at the leadership table. If a more diverse and inclusive society is to be built, one that is more equitable and more loving, one that provides greater creative opportunity for its community members, then we must support organizations that build the capacity to serve youth by partnering with students.
