PARENTING POINTERS Smart start matters for childrenEstes Park Trail-GazetteWithout opportunities to nurture the development of these skills early in life, tomorrow's employees will be challenged to compete in the global workforce.
Books and educational toys can make a child smarter, but they also influence how the brain grows, according to new research presented here on Sunday at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.
When playing with a child, signing a song, or reading a book together, you might frequently hear, "Do it again!!" We all have probably heard this request. This repetition is exactly what the developing brain needs!
This community is working together to create awareness and put in place services to support the optimal development of children's brains. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to contribute to these important efforts. Hope you enjoy and share with parents and professionals for the benefit of children!
