Children are more engaged with technology than ever before and are absorbing digital input with every click. The trends in our world suggest that technology will only become more present in the educational and social experiences of our children. Our society is in the middle of a major experiment regarding the impact of technology on our youth, and we do not know where it will lead us in terms of their brain development and learning.
Psychologist Dr. Rothstein and psychotherapist Dr. Glass, on staff at The Southfield Center and Sensory Kids, share current research relating to child development and technology’s impact. They will also examine the pros and cons of the increased role technology plays in the lives of our children and the influence of the use of technology on academic skills and social interactions. Parents will learn practical strategies for setting guidelines for technology use and how to model a balance between technology use and other endeavors.
Please note that this presentation is focused on the developmental needs of children ranging in age from 1 – 12 years old.
