When most people think of early brain development they might think mainly of academic knowledge or intelligence building. But in order for children to really thrive and reach their own unique potential they need what I term, Neuro-Nurturing®. This encompasses four essential elements that contribute to a child’s optimal early brain development which in turn leads to overall well-being in life: Physical needs, security, play, and nurturing. As a presenter, entrepreneur, and educator my company, Brain Insights is devoted to sharing this needed awareness and providing support and ideas toward implementing Neuro-Nurturing practices into the lives of children.
