You will learn why the single most important thing you can do for your child’s future success in life is to talk to them. Dr. Dana Suskind, a pediatric physician, author, and founder of the Thirty Million Words Initiative will discuss what nurtures the brains of our youngest so they can reach optimum intelligence.
Don’t miss this special opportunity to learn about the critical importance of early language exposure and the techniques that put the science into practice. We’ll uncover strategies to enhance the home and educational environment in ways that optimize a child’s brain development and their ability to learn.
Participants will understand the power of language and discover how parents can tune in, talk more, and take turns building a child’s brain to help them reach their full potential. Continuing education credits are always available at these free programs. Please consider bringing a new or used children’s book to be donated to area hospitals or drop one off at the Glenbard Administration Center in Glen Ellyn.
