We all know the critical importance of high quality early childhood education. On Wednesday, August 20, Dr. Elanna Yalow joined the host of “The Balancing Act,” Lifetime TV’s morning talk show for working moms, to discuss this topic and help educate parents on why quality early learning experiences are critical for brain development.
Dr. Yalow explained the concept of serve and return on the show and spoke to how early interactions with adults helps build a child’s brain circuitry and creates a strong foundation for future learning and development. The interview is continued evidence of KU’s leadership in early childhood education.
