Alberta Early Years Learning Series: Brain Development and the Benefits of Risky Play

Presenter: Ian Pike

The information from neuroscience is informing and changing our practices in profound ways. As we continue to learn about brain development, how do parents, professionals and policy makers sift through all of this information and discern what really matters in early childhood? How do we then take this knowledge and make informed decisions about our practices and policies? How as a community can we support each other to make the changes that really matter for our children?

Join us for this three part series that looks at brain development and the benefits of risky play, the significance of trauma and the impact of technology.
