Brain, Body, and Behavior

by Audrey Rowland MS, MBA

The physical development from infancy through the preschool years and its link to the cognitive, social and emotional development is often overlooked. During this session, we will review the critical physical development occurring during the first 5 years – including sensory development and brain development. We will explore how this development impacts behavior and learning and how we can use this knowledge to plan more effective programs. Participants will have an opportunity to create practical solutions and changes that will maximize physical development and improve behavior and learning in the classroom.
