Janna Osman’s Keynote Presentation at the April 8 CITE Conference

Building Language, Building Brains

A newborn baby’s brain is about 25 percent of its approximate adult weight. Between birth and age 3 it produces billions of cells and makes hundreds of trillions of connections.    There is so much we can do to enhance the experiences of children B-3 by understanding ages and stages of development and the role language plays, from stages of babbling to building vocabulary. Through the interaction of genes with the environment, especially including the experiences we provide, children can be successful explorers in the navigation of their world.

Janna Osman, M.Ed., is the Vice President for Advanced Learning at the Stern Center for Language and Learning in Vermont. She has been at the Stern Center since 2009. She co-developed the Vermont Blueprint to Close the Achievement Gap, a collaborative partnership that develops solutions that actively involve business and education communities, families, and government, with a focus on states’ literacy laws.

Her current work with the Turrell Fund furthers that shared mission by collaborating with Turrell partners in New Jersey to expand opportunities for early care and education providers in the early literacy and social emotional arenas.
