Noted educator, author, and psychologist, Dr. JoAnn Deak, presents a free educational seminar Jan. 4-5 at All Saints’ Episcopal Day School, 6300 North Central Ave. The presentations take place in Manning Hall 6 p.m. Monday and 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, and are free and open to the public.

In the last several years, there has been a burgeoning of research looking at readiness from a neurological perspective. The defining question: Are there areas of the brain that are most malleable or plastic during a particular age range? The answer to that question has been gaining more and more clarity to the point that the research is providing critical direction in child development. Deak will address this and other related topics as she shares her expertise in the field of brain research.

Space is limited; RSVP at
