Here are two, short videos that explain—in simple terms—how early experiences affect a child’s brain development.

The Brain Story

The Brain Story

The Alberta Family Wellness Initiative (AFWI) created The Brain Story—an online certification course that helps health professionals and other members of society to understand how the things that happen in the early years can influence the actual, physical development of a child’s brain. Whether a child experiences ongoing good or harm, their brain responds by turning on or off certain genetic expressions. This is called epigenetics, and as you can imagine, affects who we are as we grow into adults and begin the parenting journey ourselves.
