Course Summary

Brain development has changed over the last 20 years. Early brain development focused mainly on the intellectual aspects of the brain, but over the last 10 years, more focus has been placed on the social emotional exchanges in infancy and how that affects brain development. Early experiences predispose how children see the world.
