A Flying Start to P1!

 

Scientific Parenting for a SMARTER Brain Seminar

 

Give Your Child’s Brain a Flying Start to Primary One!

As your child prepares to start Primary One and begins his possibly 14-16 years (or more!) of formal education, it is a very good time for parents to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying cognitive or brain skills that drive successful learning and determine academic outcomes. We will list 3 essential cognitive or brain skills here which research has shown to strongly influence school performance:

#1: Attention & Focus – The foundation of successful learning is a focused and attentive mind. The ability to concentrate on the task at hand and not be distracted by unimportant or irrelevant information is crucial for school and life-long success. Understand how this vital brain ability develops in early childhood and how parents can nurture the development of a focused mind.

#2: Speed of Processing Information – The ability to rapidly grasp information (eg. understand what the teacher is saying while examining a picture or diagram at the same time) and the ability to rapidly provide an accurate response is a significant determinant of learning speed and examination outcomes. During the early preschool years, this capability is rapidly developing, laying a strong foundation for future school success.

#3: Emotional Intelligence – The importance of strong emotional intelligence (EQ) for school and career success have been emphasized in recent years. Some people believe that EQ is even more important than IQ! For a young child, this critical ability to manage one’s own and others’ emotions is essential for the ability to develop emotional resilience, social skills and strong friendships, allowing one to fully thrive in school.

Attend this seminar to learn more about:

1)    Key cognitive skills essential for school success

2)    Cognitive training in preschool children – What it really entails

3)    8 research-based strategies to give your child’s brain a flying start in Primary One!
