Pretend Play and Brain Growth
Trainer: Erin Akers, Director of Education and Development
What are the basics of child development and how do children learn? Neuroscience and current brain research tell us about child growth and learning and can we apply this knowledge to understand what school readiness really means. What role does PLAY have in this process? All types of play are important but not the same when considering overall development and brain development. What are executive function skills and how are they developed? What role do executive function skills play in a child’s early academic career? What strategies can we use to narrow the achievement gap? We will explore all of this and more!
