The Learning Brain: The science of what keeps the brain healthy, reduces anxiety and helps learning, with Dr. Lara Boyd, PT, PhD
If you missed the opportunity to attend The Learning Brain, last year at Lord Nelson Elementary, you have the opportunity again this year to learn from highly renowned neuroscientist (and parent) Dr. Lara Boyd.
Dr. Boyd reviews how the brain changes with learning and development. She will discuss how stress and anxiety affects the brain and learning. Dr. Boyd will present recent data showing brain plasticity in children and conclude with some practice tips for maximizing learning and brain plasticity.
