Matthew Peterson presents compelling data for why a child’s “wiring” isn’t the only factor in his or her future success. Learn how neurobiology and brain development in early childhood impact a child’s social-emotional growth and academic achievement; how school performance impacts dropout rates, on-time graduation rates and chances of court involvement; and how those issues impact college and career readiness and earning potential. Ultimately, Matthew provides real-world solutions for how to create a more vibrant, talented workforce, reduce real costs to our community, and build a stronger community fabric with more engaged, active citizens.
