Poverty on the Brain: 7 Power Tools for Overcoming Poverty's Impact on Young Minds
Poverty has a pervasive, negative impact on the developing brain. In this seminar, you'll learn specifically the changes in the brain compelled by the experience of chronic poverty. Armed with this cutting-edge neuroscience, you'll be introduced to the "7 Power Tools" specifically designed to overcome poverty's impact on young, growing minds. Children experiencing poverty--by necessity--have different brains than their non-impoverished peers. Thus, teaching and intervening with impoverished and non-impoverished brains in the same ways is contrary to what science tells us about development and the need to teach, counsel and guide our impoverished children in a highly enriched, comprehensive and advanced manner. This experience will equip you with the knowledge, strategies and skills that will instill a clear vision about helping children experiencing poverty, increase your success and stimulate your strategic thinking about excellence for impoverished students.
