Brain Development (Part 1) Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Springfield School District
Instructor: Scott Noyes

Theory, Application and Action Steps. Raising children is all about growing brains. Does listening to Mozart make children smarter? What’s up with Baby Einstein videos? Do brain toys and early academic exposure work? Does telling a child they are smart make them intelligent? Why is empathy important in an evolving brain? By examining the current research on brain development, this seminar works to develop the practical applications and action steps for child care providers. Understanding the difference between a stressed and an unstressed brain, boy brains and girl brains, and sensitive periods and critical periods, provides for many lively discussions addressing, "What does all this stuff mean?"
