MindWing Concepts provides professional development workshops and multisensory materials. Our goal is to give every child- regardless of age, ability or culture the skills to think, communicate & learn effectively in order to achieve academic and social success.
MindWing Concepts' was founded in 1994 by Maryellen Rooney Moreau, M.Ed. CCC-SLP after years of research and practice working with school-aged children and at the college level in the area of language and literacy. MindWing Concepts was born of Maryellen's passion: to teach children to think and communicate.
