Facts & Myths in Baby Brain Stimulation
8th April 2021, 8:30pm to 9:30pm (Singapore Time)
Parents all know that the early years of zero to five are marked by a period of remarkable brain growth. The average size of a child’s brain reaches about 90% of adult brain size before the age of five. These early years offer a tremendous opportunity for parents to shape and maximise brain development and lay down the best foundations for future success.
The million dollar question is – how do we do this? There are a myriad of options in the market, especially in Asian countries, from right brain training programmes and baby gyms to special third-language development programmes. And yet, there are others who advocate that a child should be left alone to develop at their own pace.
This webinar will present the latest science on early brain development, and discuss the facts and myths of brain stimulation. Parents will also learn about “SMART Play®”, a powerful and fully science-based guided play approach for early brain stimulation, as well as essential pre-academic brain skills which parents should build in these early years. Take home the latest proven strategies to help your baby lay down important brain foundations with a lasting impact for learning and success in school and life.
