The brain grows the fastest in the first few years of a child's life. For children and adults living in poverty and deep poverty, brain development is negatively impacted by factors including: less cognitive stimulation, stressful and unsafe living conditions, poor nutrition and family instability. Please join Rob in a day of experiential learning and discussion about the challenges professionals face in delivering resources to address the mounting impact of poverty on the brain. Learn key models of the brain, understand environmental and systemic issues and most importantly, create impactful interventions and strategies to immediately apply to your practice. Rob Levit is a Licsensed Consultant for the Standards for Excellence Institute.
