Community Connection Series — Virtual Conversation on 80×3 Early Childhood Development

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Research shows that 80 percent of brain development happens by age three. 80×3’s goal is to expand our region’s capacity to equitably deliver trauma-sensitive early childhood care and education as well as provide holistic parent support for children prenatal to age three.

Join us to hear from experts who will speak to the importance of trauma-informed care, including the brain science of adverse childhood experiences, preventative and therapeutic practices, and how United Way’s 80×3 program will accelerate the implementation of trauma-sensitive practices.
