Frameworks: Perceptions of Early Child Development in Alberta

FrameWorks Institute

Framing Metaphor

FrameWorks Institute, June 2010

This reference table lists eight topics from the core story of early brain and biological development, mental health, and addiction. Beside each topic is a statement representative of public perceptions in Alberta towards that topic – indicating either understanding of the concept or misperceptions rooted in in outdated knowledge or cultural bias. For each topic the table offers a discussion framework for correcting misperceptions or reinforcing correct interpretations of the issue.
