Brain Developments

in Cognitive

A large part of the this site is to help parents understand how everyday experiences impact their child’s brain. Everyday experiences: talking, walking, eating, playing, sleeping, arguing, singing, bathing–ad infinitum–directly grow specific dendrites in specific areas of the brain. And just as similarly, these drendrites fail to grow & parts of the brain fail to develop when certain activities are not experienced.

I am now beginning the journey of developing my BRAINWORKS page, in the hopes of creating a place for you to reference while learning about these critical ——- 1st five years. My hope is to illustrate how everyday experiences directly impact different parts of the brain. When you are able to see for yourself how your child’s brain operates, you will be able to make a much more educated decision on what is best for your child.

The most empowering knowledge for you to gain–is the knowledge of how everyday activities promote and develop the same domain areas  (see DAP page) for which you send your child to preschool. These same skill areas, or domains, can be advanced much more quickly and substantially at home. Unfortunately, these skill areas become stifled at preschool instead of enriched.

My hope is that this site will be able to provide you with more food for thought by shedding light on previously obscured facts.
