Early Child Development — Setting Them Up For Life with Prof. Adele Diamond and Prof. Clyde Hertzman

Canadian researchers are world leaders in helping parents understand how to reduce the number of diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, cut school dropout rates and slash the incidence of crime and drug addiction. By better understanding the dynamics of early childhood development, researchers hope to boost academic achievement and prevent children from experiencing serious problems later in life.

Speakers Adele Diamond, UBC Department of Psychiatry and Clyde Hertzman, Human Early Learning Partnership, UBC, are two of Canada’s top thinkers in the area of child development, will present their latest work and discuss what parents, families and caregivers can learn from current, cutting-edge research in this area.
