Helping Your Child’s “Brain Health” - maximizing neurological development from prenatal to five years old

Parents determine the environment of their youngsters, who develop 90% of their brains from 0-5 years old. The nutrition, love, home, entertainment, exercise, discipline, stimulus, education, and role modeling you provide at this time shapes their brains for life. Are you making well-informed choices?

My 90-minute presentation, compiled via recent academic research, helps you discover multiple ways to assist the intellectual growth of your child. You’ll learn how to encourage Curiosity, elevate Gratitude, ‘Mathematize’ Perception, and detour “Materialism” and other destructive behaviors. You’ll receive information on food, chemicals, stress, disease, and electronic technology children should avoid; plus you’ll get tips on anger management and how-to-be-your-best-self as a role model.

(Lecturer) Hank Pellissier is director of Brighter Brains Institute, a non-profit dedicated to enhancing neurological health. He’s the author of Brighter Brains: 225 ways to elevate or injure IQ, and Why is the IQ of Ashkenazi Jews So High? plus numerous essays on brain damage, curiosity, gratitude, neuro-enhancement, child development, academic performance, technology, and creating early math skills. As a journalist, he’s written for GreatSchools.org, NYTimes, SFGate.com, and Salon.com; as a lecturer he’s presented at conferences at Harvard University, Washington D.C., Berkeley, San Jose, Phoenix, and San Francisco. He founded/directed the preschools The Children’s Lab, Bernal Kids Coop, and Mission Kids Coop, in San Francisco.
