The Telethon Kids Institute was recently very fortunate to have Dr Jack Shonkoff from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University as an esteemed CoLab Visiting Scholar. Dr Shonkoff's generous spirit, wisdom and knowledge certainly influenced the work of CoLab and we hope his presentation Building the Skills of Caregivers had a similar impact on you and your work.
Dr Shonkoff has kindly agreed to share his presentations with you. Please find below a link to video footage of Dr Shonkoff's presentations as well as the accompanying PowerPoint slides.
Building the Skills of Parents Experiencing Adversity
The CoLab team prepared an evidence snapshot to provide background to the early years issues discussed during Dr Shonkoff's presentation Building the Skills of Parents Experiencing Adversity. This snapshot can be downloaded here.
CoLab and Goodstart Early Learning supported Child Australia to bring Dr Shonkoff to Perth as a keynote speaker for the 2017 Early Childhood Learning and Development Conference.
Interview with ABC News
While he was in Perth Dr Shonkoff spoke to ABC News about the critical importance of the early years.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any aspect of CoLab's work.
