Early Brain Development

The information available to us parents today is amazing!  And it can be overwhelming.  These are some helpful trusted resources that I recommend if you are interested in learning more about early brain development and what you can do to give your child what he/she needs for optimal brain development.

Zero to Three is a non-profit organization that promotes the healthy development of infants, toddlers and their families.  They provide emperical information to guide you in your child’s development.  And they have an amazing brain development interactive page that is really cool!

New Directions Institute is an amazing resource!  And they are right here in Phoenix, AZ!  They offer FREE seminars that teach what babies need for optimal brain development.

Visit Childtrauma.org if you are interested in learning about the Neurosequential Model developed by Bruce Perry.  And I highly recommend his book “The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog” and “Born for Love”.

Feeding the Starving Brain, Nutrition for Learning, by Jan Katzen-Luchenta, AMI is a wonderful book offering research on the importance of nutrition on the developing brain.  Her website is also a great resource.

Miss Jackie has wonderful ideas for stimulating brain games for your baby and toddler.

The Secret Life of the Brain A series by PBS showing the development of the human brain.

Life’s Greatest Miracle A series by PBS Nova, exploring human development from ebryo to newborn.

The Brain Connection is a resource created by Scientific Learning Corporation.

Your Developing Baby is a wonderful resource by the American Pregnancy Association showing the in utero development of your child.

Baby Center has very helpful information and also contained detailed information on the developing regions of your baby’s brain.
