2012 Nebraska Children’s Summit Lecture: Parenting and Brain Development: Implications for Early Identification and Early Intervention

Presented by: Dr. Joan Luby

This presentation reviewed empirical data showing a relationship between elements of the environment, particularly parental support, and the developing brain in children. The implications of these findings for early intervention and prevention programs were discussed. In addition, the importance of early identification and treatment of mental disorders, based on greater brain neuroplasticity earlier in development were considered.
