How does increased screen time impact a child’s developing brain? Troubling changes take place in the still-maturing brain of the average child and teen who spends much of the day interacting with technology.
Parents, teachers, and scientific researchers are growing concerned about disturbing trends in childhood due to the increased use of screens. This presentation will address these concerns through a framework of child development that emphasizes sensory development, movement, imagination, and play. Recommendations around how to help your child develop their brain potential will be included. Teachers at all levels and parents are encouraged to attend.
A light breakfast will be served before the workshop begins.
