About the event

Having a basic understanding of brain development is crucial for anyone who interacts with children, from caregivers to educators. And while brain science is extremely complex, there are pieces that can be made very practical. This two-hour introductory session will outline what influences brain development in childhood, how the brain influences childhood behaviour, and what we can do to support healthy brain development. While this session is designed to apply to children 0 - 12 years of age the information in this session is applicable to all ages. Whether you are looking to better support children in learning new skills, reduce challenging behaviour, or better understand your own brain, this session is for you.


  • Broadly describe how the brain develops
  • Outline basic influences on brain development, both protective and adverse
  • Populate strategies for supporting healthy brain development in children
