Keynote Address

Connecting with Kids: Brain Development, its Potential, Our Responsibility

“In the first few years of life, more than 1 million new neural connections form every second

This presentation shares the exciting process of brain development, and key factors that impact on building strong foundations, and strong connections. 

We then explore the very important role and potential we have as significant adults in the life of a child, to make a difference, by helping to set up strong foundations, and support their development, learning and well-being. 

Dr Alice Brown, University of Southern Queensland
