On October 23rd, Eaton Arrowsmith hosted the third annual Neuroplasticity and Education Conference in Vancouver, which included six of the world’s leading experts in neuroscience.
More than 600 educators, psychologists, counselors, therapists and parents joined us to learn and better understand the brain’s ability to grow and change.
The conference featured talks on cultivating resilience and reflective skills, lifestyle choices that impact neuroplasticity, building blocks of mathematical competence, the plasticity of brains in children with learning disabilities, and factors that aid or hinder development of executive functions.
Local Vancouver media showed an interest in our event and key topics, such as math dyslexia. If you missed the radio interviews and stories, listen to and read them here:
•Listen to Dr. Daniel Ansari speak with Lynda Steele about Math Dyslexia, also known as “dyscalculia”.
•CBC News also did a piece about Dyscalculia and the conference, which you can read here.
•The Vancouver Sun also mentions the conference in a piece that features several of the guest speakers.
This year’s conference proved to be another fantastic event filled with revolutionary ideas – we’re already looking forward to next year’s Neuroplasticity and Education conference!
Presentations and slides from this year’s speakers are available for viewing here.
