This past November, Little Pickle Press was very excited to hear that one of our award-winning authors, and international neuroplasticity expert, JoAnn Deak, Ph.D., was going to be the keynote speaker at the 92|Y Wonderplay Early Childhood Learning Conference.
This year was the fifth year that the 92|Y Wonderplay Early Childhood Learning Conference took place, bringing together early childhood professionals and international leaders in education and child & family development. The goal of the conference was to teach about the development about a child’s brain in the first five years of life, and why this specific stage plays such crucial role in lifetime development.
It is no wonder that Dr. Deak was selected to speak on the topic. Dr. Deak has spent significant time traveling and working with adults and parents to help understand what they can do to optimize their role as “neurosculptors”. Few can take as complex a subject as neurology, and break it down in terms that we can understand and apply to our everyday lives. This skill is what makes Dr. Deak and her book, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain, so exceptional.
If you couldn’t attend November’s Wonderplay conference, but have an interest in learning what you can to do become a better neurosculptor, you can watch Dr. Deak’s presentation here.
