As we think about how to protect children and families, we’d be smart to pay attention to the latest research in early brain development. A three-part video series from the Center on the Developing Child shows how advances in science now give us a much better understanding of how early experiences are built into our bodies and brains. The videos (each is under two minutes) include: How Experience Builds Brain Architecture; How the Serve and Return Interaction Shapes Brain Circuitry and How Toxic Stress Derails Healthy Development. Click here to watch them on Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child’s website: Three Core Concepts in Early Development.
