Welcome back to the Government House Lecture Series podcast.
The latest edition explores the exciting topic of how to optimise early neurological development in children. In other words, how to build baby’s best brain, from conception to classroom.
Our moderator – Ngala CEO, Fiona Beermier – guides an interactive discussion with our State’s leading scientists in this field who will share their research findings as well as practical steps for parents and carers. Tune in to hear about the Bright Tomorrows app that offers suggestions on activities you can do each day with your child to help their brain development, as well as the science behind it.
