Dr. André Corriveau highlights the strong connection between the early childhood years and life-long health, well-being, learning and behavior. He explains how our growing understanding about the early years in a child’s life provides us with a compelling opportunity to re-think how we support healthy childhood development. Dr. Corriveau’s report, “Let’s Talk About the Early Years” has created a network with individuals and organizations that has supported discussions surrounding the role of individuals, families, communities and government in ensuring healthy early childhood development for Alberta children. The report incorporates early brain and biological development information and language from the Centre on the Developing Child working papers.
