The Growing Brain From Birth to Five Years Old: Understanding Behavior


Session Dates

Wednesday August 31, 2022 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM - Webinar

All behavior is driven by the brain, but how these behaviors get expressed is influenced by three key factors that shape how children process and react to the experiences they have in the world: where they are developmentally, their temperament, and environmental factors. This session will explore these factors to help identify the meaning or purpose of behavior.


Participants will:

1. Identify connections between the various areas of the brain and how these connections are expressed through behavior.
2. Identify the key factors that influence behavior.
3. Identify strategies to support positive behavior development in young children.
