No Small Matter – Documentary Screening and Discussion January 27, 2020
There will be a screening of the film No Small Matter and discussion of the state of early childhood following the film. Synopsis: Thanks to new brain science-scanning technology and rigorous inquiry, scientists understand more about children’s brains than ever before. With every new study, the incredible development happening in a child’s early years becomes more and more apparent. For example, we now know that the number of words a child hears before age of three can vastly improve his/her school readiness and that when a child lacks engaging, loving environment toxic experiences have the power to rewire the brain with consequences that last a lifetime. Objectives: (1) Participants will understand key elements of basic child development (2) Participants will understand and discuss the impact of toxic experiences on the development of children’s brains.
