On Wednesday, September 30th, Dr. Paul Yellin will be opening an exciting new lecture series sponsored by the Resurrection Episcopal Day School in New York. The lectures are free and open to the public.
The series is entitled "Working Together - The Collaboration among Parents, Teachers, Clinicians and Scientists to Support Learning and Development in All Children" and is designed to help create connections among the groups concerned with children's cognitive, emotional, and spiritual development.
Dr. Yellin will begin this series by looking at the emerging field of Mind, Brain, and Education which brings together scientists, educators, and clinicians to collaborate in what has often been a narrow and fragmented world.
Subsequent speakers include Dr. Todd Rose, of the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Center for Applied Special Technology (where Dr. Yellin is a member of the Board of Directors); Dr. Joshua Sparrow; Maria Trozzi; and Dr. CeCe McCarton, founder of the McCarton School and Foundation.
