Shreiner Academy, a private K-8 school, will host a yearlong, free speaker series to help parents and teachers understand childhood.
“They’re not little adults,” said David Florence, school director. “Children are moving through many stages of development from birth to adulthood. The advances in neuroscience have taken our understanding of human development to new levels.”
The speakers will range from experts on sensory integration to family life. Each free talk will begin at 5:30pm.
The first in the series is “A Child’s Mind and Body” on September 24 with Beth Mathison from Babies Can’t Wait, who will explain sensory integration and understanding a child as a whole person.
