Denver area presentation: Brain Rules for Baby

If you’re in the Denver Colorado area, you might be interested in an upcoming presentation by Dr. John Medina, author of Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School and Brain Rules for Baby: How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child from Zero to Five.

This lecture is aimed at early childhood professionals, family and pediatric health care professionals, parents, and parent advocates. With Dr. Medina’s engaging style and provocative approach to creating “brain‐friendly”environments, we will challenge ourselves and our communities to turn scientific evidence into the actions needed to provide a more secure future for our youngest citizens.

The lecture will be held at the University of Denver on Thursday, October 28 at 4:30. The lecture is presented by Early Childhood Colorado Information Clearing House (a “gateway to information and resources about all matters related to the healthy and thriving development of children, birth to age 8”). More information is available at their Web site.

At Be Amazing Learning, we’re intrigued by Dr. Medina’s work (we’re chugging through Brain Rules, and hope to have a review posted soon). In particular, it’s great to see educators and parents contemplating new approaches to raising and educating children that are driven by the newest research into how the brain develops.
