Beyond Poverty: Brain-Inspired Ways to Understand and Respond to Poverty
9-4 | TranZed Alliance Conference Center, Baltimore, MD
Presented by Frank Kros, MSW, JD
Poverty has a synergistic and pervasive negative impact on children’s brains. Given the many developmental windows occurring in childhood, poverty often wreaks havoc on the brain’s ability to grow and function optimally. In this workshop, participants will learn the specific impact of poverty on the developing brain, the outcomes of that damage in the classroom and the community, and the interventions that can be used to overcome poverty’s effects. Specific, research-based strategies for combating the negative impact of poverty on learning will be introduced for infants, pre-school and school-aged children.
