Our Mission

We believe that every student deserves an opportunity to be successful in the classroom and in life, but with computers and mobile devices always on and always available, the way our kids socialize and interact has fundamentally changed. And these changes create barriers to building real world relationships.

All too often, educators see students who can’t focus, don’t know how to manage their emotions, and have trouble interacting with peers.

What we need are new tools to address these modern challenges.

At Centervention®, we provide online games to help students in grades K-8 improve social and emotional skills. These games are fun for students, automatically gather data so educators can monitor progress, and include supplemental lessons to reinforce learning.

Yes, it may seem counter-intuitive to use technology to teach social and emotional skills. After all, the whole point is to be able to interact effectively with other people, right? The reality is that games and technology are engaging for kids, and once they’ve learned these skills in the games, they can be applied to their real lives.

With Centervention, educators can meet students where they are, address their unique needs, and do so in a fun, effective way.
