Beyond Poverty

Beyond Poverty: Brain-Inspired Ways to Understand and Respond to Poverty

Poverty has a synergistic and pervasive negative impact on children’s brains. Given the many developmental windows occurring in childhood, poverty often wreaks havoc on the brain’s ability to grow and function optimally. In this workshop, participants will learn the specific damage that occurs in the developing brain exposed to poverty, the impact of that damage in the classroom and the community, and the interventions that can be used to overcome poverty’s effects. Specific, research– based strategies for combating the negative impact of poverty on learning will be introduced for infants, pre-school and school-aged children. Exciting discoveries in neuroscience have revealed that the brain is a dynamic and changing organ—particularly in childhood. Known as “neuroplasticity,” the brain’s ability to change and grow through exposure to environmental stimulus offers exciting new approaches and strategies for educators, parents and child-serving professionals working with children of poverty. The impoverished brain can be changed significantly for the better and these techniques provide you with the tools to begin transforming young minds.
