The use of a neuropsychological approach for understanding a child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses allows researchers to recognize how that child processes information and learns. This is especially important when examining at children with low-incidence disabilities, such as children with nonverbal learning disabilities. The purpose of this single-case study was to determine the efficacy of a mindfulness curriculum, MindUP, in decreasing problem behaviors and increasing social skills and academic competence of a 9-year-old boy with a nonverbal learning disability. The results indicated that the use of MindUP significantly increased the participant’s social skills and academic competence, while simultaneously decreasing his problem behaviors in the school setting.
