Literacy for Life

The key note speaker will be Barbara Strauch, deputy science editor of The New York Times in charge of health and medical science and the author of several books, including The Secret Life of the Grown-up Brain and The Primal Teen (addressing the teenage brain).

Continuum of Growth

Other speakers will address the continuum of life’s literacy growth during the children and teen years. Please contact Jeanine Asche at 650.312.5312 or by email with any questions.
