Brain Development for 18 – 36 Months
Healthy brain development is one of the most important aspects of childhood development. More specifically, the first few years of life are a significant time for this because synaptic connections are at a peak level. This is the time when positive and nurturing experiences are vital so that the brain can form strong networks that set the foundation for learning. By understanding the importance of early synaptic connections, parents realize that having their children participate in enriching programs, such as a martial arts program, that assists in this development is worthwhile.
