The Pediatric Brain Foundation's New Executive Director
Paul S. Madar, DM, DD, MBA, BS
Paul S. Madar is uniquely qualified for the kind of collaborative work that the Pediatric Brain Foundation supports. Beyond his love of working with children, he brings a diverse background of studies and experience, including biological sciences, alternative health, business, cognitive sciences, humanities, nonprofit development, music and even theology. He has directed independent schools for the last 18 years, teaching, lecturing and giving radio and television interviews in many cities throughout the Midwest.
Previously, Paul has worked at the University of Missouri—Columbia, the Missouri Humanities Council, the School of Metaphysics, Indiana Landmarks and the Holcomb Research Institute. Paul’s doctoral thesis in 2011 involved studying the resonant healing properties of sound, vibration and music, with applications for children. He received a doctorate of divinity in 2005, an MBA from Butler University in 1995, and a BS in Biology from Cornell University in 1987.
Being a father of two girls, Paul occasionally gives programs and workshops for parents in support of self-directed education. He enjoys synthesizing his diverse disciplines and speaking to schools, businesses and professional groups. A Renaissance man, he is also a multi-instrument musician, writer, artist, storyteller, actor, carpenter, counselor, investor and world traveler.
News in Scientific Research

By strengthening the case that the deleted gene disrupts a key biological pathway, the research may lay the foundation for future medical treatments for specific subtypes of autism, along with cognitive and language disabilities.
"This study shows an important connection between gene differences and differences in neurophysiology," said study leader Timothy P.L....
