No Small Matter Screening and Panel Discussion Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Let's Grow Kids
Instructor: Tanya LaChapelle

There will be a screening of the film No Small Matter and discussion of the state of early education 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 the age of three can vastly improve her school readiness and that when a child lacks an engaging, loving environment, toxic experiences actually have the power to rewire her brain with consequences that last a lifetime. Participants will understand key elements of basic child development and the impact of toxic experiences
