Dr. Juliet Morrison, Washington State Department of Early Learning
Research about early childhood adverse experiences and early brain development have highlighted the importance of promoting key executive functioning skills—such as memory and attention—to improve children's outcomes. This presentation will focus on how Washington State is embedding the science of early learning into state systems and policy work, with a focus on executive function. Dr. Morrison will describe definitions and development of executive function, as well as how adults can support children within early learning environments. Dr. Morrison will provide examples of the state's investment to build skills in the early learning workforce and support children's developing executive function skills from birth to third grade.
