Many parents often wonder why their children act and behave the way they do? They often marvel at the stages of development they witness and simultaneously may be left bewildered by that very journey of growth and maturation. As a parent and a researcher in neurological development my aim is to unlock some of the mysteries of the development of the mind from birth through adolescence and shed light on why children and teenagers may act the way they do. The intent is to give parents an avenue for understanding a range of developmental inevitabilities including the importance of just saying ‘no’ to a toddler and the reasons why adolescents seem to have difficulty explaining their actions when doing the ‘wrong’ thing or indeed why they are, at times, seemingly incapable of responsible decision making.
A session for parents.
Human development, especially neurological development The adolescent brain Gender differences in learning and behavior 21st century learners
Many people may not be aware that neuroscientists continue to uncover a range of anatomical, chemical and functional differences between the brains of boys and girls? What might you do differently if you were armed with an understanding of the neurological differences between boys and girls and how this might impact on behaviour and learning? […]
Working with young people in the 21st century can be both exciting and daunting. In some sense teaching is arguably much like performing neuro-surgery in that any training you received years ago may not only be considered outdated but also a hindrance to performing your duties well. This session looks at recent neurological findings for […]
Since the 1990s there has been more worldwide research in the neurological sciences than at any other time in history. A great deal of the research that has been done has also been applied to many other fields of study. As a result of all of this work, education has been reinvigorated with new understandings […]
