About Us

Our Mission Statement

 

The mission of Connections in Mind Outreach (CiMO) is to improve the outcomes for all people in the UK with executive function challenges, with a particular focus on young people who face multiple disadvantages – such as poverty and special educational needs – and to increase awareness about how executive functions relate to childhood development, emotional wellbeing, learning and behaviour.

We achieve our mission by building partnerships with organisations who support young people who face multiple disadvantages, helping them to deliver programmes that promote executive function skills development.

 

What are Executive Functions?

 

Executive functions are a fundamental aspect of brain development, which have a profound impact on our learning and wellbeing. Executive function skills affect our ability to plan, organise and execute tasks efficiently. They are also involved in how we manage our emotions, self-regulation, control, and self-awareness. These are the skills we need to flourish in life. Consequently, poor executive functioning can negatively impact academic achievement, emotional wellbeing, interpersonal relationships, and job outcomes.
