This Developing Brain Discussion Guide is part of Terry Talks, a series of ongoing video presentations and supporting materials led by Terry Laura (Health Technical Advisor at Compassion International). The resources are aimed at equipping and encouraging health and child advocates to learn, build on, and put into practice their expertise in health, especially as it relates to children in poverty. Humans learn more in the first five years of life than in any other period of life. Eighty percent of a child's brain is formed by their third birthday. If we want children to become healthy, successful adults, we have to start early building solid foundations for growth, learning, health, and behavior in children's brains. This supplemental guide is packed with more valuable information on the developing brain, as well as discussion questions that you can work through with your team to help define how you can take action to positively impact the lives of the children in your community.
