Putting Science into Practice: Birth to Graduation

Research shows the first 1,000 days of a child’s brain development are the most critical and is the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. By investing and intervening early, there are large financial and social benefits, including reducing disparities. This session brings together national experts to discuss how the science and evidence can and should inform early childhood and K-12 policies to improve outcomes and equity for all children.
