Brains are built over time, from the bottom up, and healthy brain architecture provides the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. But what makes a strong or weak foundation? And what can we do in the early years to ensure children have strong brain architecture?
“The Brain Architects” is a podcast from Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child that focuses on questions that often arise for parents and care providers during the critically important stages of early childhood.
Bringing together experts and practitioners from a variety of fields (including pediatrics, social services, and education, among others) the podcast connects different voices that do not often have the opportunity to speak directly with one another.
The conversations in the podcast explore questions such as “What does toxic stress actually look like in the day-to-day?” and “How can I make sure I’m building my child’s brain?” to help us use the science of child development to improve the lives of the little ones that we interact with every day.
