In this dynamic presentation, embedded with humor and fascinating looks into the brains of young children, you will see how the brain changes in the first few years. Discover the behavior already evident by first grade that predicts life and academic outcomes into adulthood and how you can insure better outcomes. Find out the brain process that is a better predictor of achievement than SES. See for yourself how the brains of children from disadvantaged homes are different and learn interventions that eradicate the effects of poverty on achievement. By the end of this presentation, you will truly understand why early childhood is the most important investment in education that we can make.
