Healthy Brain Development: Protective & Risk Factors

10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Alberta Children's Hospital - Kinsmen Theatr

Childhood and adolescence is a period of major developmental change for the human brain. The foundations for healthy brain development are laid during pregnancy and infancy, and after birth external environmental factors constantly influence how a child interacts with and learns from the world around them. This presentation will discuss our current understanding of healthy brain development during childhood and adolescence, and highlight how the interplay between protective factors (diverse support networks, good nutrition) and risk factors (maternal and child stress, substance use) can influence brain development and how a child thinks, learns, and acts.

Typical speech and language development for two to five year olds will be presented, as well as when and how to seek help. There are many misunderstandings of what 'typical' speech and language development looks like in preschool-aged children. We will set the record straight and discuss when to refer, and how the 'wait and see' approach often may not be appropriate.
