No gadgets required: Parenting for brain growthJuly 12, 2014 @ 8:04 am
SEATTLE (AP) -- Scientists have learned a lot about the preschool brain over the past decade. But unless they read medical journals, most parents and others who care for their young children have yet to hear about those discoveries.
Researchers at the University of Washington and a group of nonprofit partners are trying to change that by making outreach and education a bigger part of their work.
A variety of new efforts have begun: from a Facebook page with photos of parents and kids demonstrating learning activities to a free online mini-university explaining the science in a way that everyone can understand and apply it.
