Language, Behavior, and the Brain: Designing Effective Early Learning Environments and Experiences

Leaders, practitioners, and caregivers across the mixed-delivery
system, in both informal and formal programs and services, are working every day to improve the quality of children’s experiences and learning environments. At the same time, the science of early language, behavioral, and brain development has expanded dramatically in the last decade and there is much to be gleaned from it for greater impact. This two-day program therefore explores what the latest science reveals about creating optimal formal and informal learning environments and experiences, ultimately strengthening children’s brain development and laying the foundation for healthy development in the future. Working with experienced facilitators, participants will learn from experts in the field, analyze case studies, and then apply their learning to developing a strategic plan for their own work.
