The Early Years Last Forever - Whakamana i te tamaiti
We cover brain development from conception though the early years, a period of time which may affect a child’s development emotionally, physically, intellectually and socially.
The main topics covered are:
What happens to children can help, or get in the way of, their healthy development.
Children’s brain development is influenced by their experiences.
Every day there are opportunities to help children reach their potential.
Children need to feel loved.
Adversity in childhood can have both short and long term effects.
Brainwave is a Charitable Trust whose purpose is to bring the current scientific findings on brain development to New Zealanders through comprehensive, easy to understand format. The aim is to educate everyone who has an impact on the early life of children/tamariki about the implications of this knowledge on children and young people’s physical, social, intellectual and emotional development. All the information delivered is based on the current scientific understanding of normal brain development.
