Neuroscience and Behaviour - Webinar

Nesa Accredited PD

Drawing from current research in relation to how children’s brains grow and develop, this session will support you to identify a child’s stress related behaviour and develop an understanding of how the brain and body work together to create behavioural responses. This research and science can apply a new ‘lens’ to how we view children’s behaviour and our responses as educators.
