Giving Society's Youngest Members a Strong Start (Somali)


Scientific study of early brain development has found that the brain of a newborn baby develops with amazing speed and that most our basic brain wiring takes place during the first five years of life. Studies of human development show that without a strong foundation in healthy brain development, children are more likely to be at risk for having difficulty learning or getting along with others. This Choicework helps citizens discuss the question: how can we make sure that children benefit from the growing body of knowledge about early childhood development and get the best start in life? Available in English, Spanish and Somali.
