Dr. Julia Harper will deliver the presentation focused upon the often ignored relationship between the home and classroom environment and the brain. Dr. Harper will highlight these connections and offer insight into how educators and parents can effectively change the most important aspect of the child’s development, the environment in which the brain is functioning.
Niccole Howard, Executive Director of CCCR said, “The home and classroom affects how a child’s brain develops and thus affects function. We want our educators and parents to become facilitators of creating an environment which will provide the setting for our children to grow and thrive.”
