Children raised in poverty have higher rates of developmental delays and disabilities related to learning, which affect their school readiness.
In Brain Matters, Director Carlota Nelson travels the world—including Sarasota, Florida—to interview scientists, psychologists, and other early childhood development experts to reveal the essential factors that help young children thrive.
Brain Matters reveals that learning begins way before children go to school and that it is the experiences children are exposed to that determine their chances for future success. Everyday situations such as play, relationships, language, and nutrition are examined with a fresh scientific approach, aiming at a set of brain-boosting skills and activities that can provide every child with the opportunity to thrive.
