Topic: Talk to Me Baby What is Talk With Me Baby: Foster Care? The brain undergoes its most dramatic development during the first three years of life. This makes early childhood a "period of great vulnerability, but also a period of great opportunity." We know that young children (aged 0-5) in foster care have often suffered from environments that do not nurture brain development and they become at-risk of falling behind in their developmental learning. These development delays can have a significant impact on the childs cognitive ability for language, literacy, school readiness, and ultimately educational success. Talk With Me Baby: Foster Care is a curriculum that was created to provide foster parents of children ages birth to five, with strategies and tools to nurture brain and language development.
