Have you ever wondered what things are like through a child’s eyes? Have you ever wondered how you may be able to better understand your child, grandchild, or students? Are you interested in learning how children perceive things in efforts to better interact with them? Do you often wonder about play and how to nurture their growth?
Answering ‘yes’ to any of the above is reason enough to come to this incredible event.
Through the Child’s Eyes: Playing & Growing, featuring speaker Dr. Vanessa Lapointe (registered psychologist, author and speaker) is geared towards any caregiver, parent, teacher, grandparent, that is interested in the growing up of children. This is a fund-raising speaking event, aimed to show us the “wonder” of seeing the world through a child’s eyes and perspective.
Dr. Lapointe, will be sharing the how, the why, and the overall view of better understanding how the child experiences, perceives and sees the world. By really understanding this, it will allow one to better understand how to respond to children. This better understanding would allow adults to be more equipped to interact with these young minds, in such a way that positively aligns with science and their development.
Play is a large and pivotal part of our growing childrens’ lives. Dr. Lapointe will also be discussing how to differentiate play born of rest from performance driven play, and how to create and nurture elements in the child’s ‘world’ so that this play is able to grow and blossom in the child.
This event is sure to give anyone amazing insights and benefit those interacting with children. Dr. Lapointe is an entertaining and passionate speaker, who will keep one engaged and informed. Information such as this is vital and so helpful for parents and caregivers.
