Webinar: Shaping Your Baby’s Brain

Time: 12:00pm-1:00pm

Shaping Your Baby’s Brain: Brain Development and Stress Regulation in Early ChildhoodThe first few years of life are a period of incredibly rapid brain development. Your child’s experiences with parents and other caregivers play an active role in shaping his or her brain architecture. We will explore how playing with, comforting, and talking to your baby or child helps to build connections between brain regions. Attend this webinar to learn about basic needs for healthy brain development, including relationship needs, nutritional needs, and sleep needs, as well as recommendations to support healthy brain development in infancy and toddlerhood.

One of the biggest challenges for infants and young children is managing stress. Their bodies’ stress systems are immature at birth, so they rely upon sensitive caregivers to help them regulate their stress hormone levels. We will discuss fascinating research revealing how parents buffer their infants and young children from physiological stress. This webinar is intended for parents, grandparents, and all the other important caregivers in the lives of infants and young children.
