90% of a child’s brain is developed by the age of 3 years, however the brain remains malleable and ever changing through emerging adulthood. Much of human behavior can be explained through understanding the neurological development of the child’s brain and what works best for creating bigger brains. Come learn about how children’s brain development progresses, how it explains their child’s behavior and needs, and tips on providing experiences to optimize that development.
