I am finding that Apple is useful as a
discussion starter with the parents and
community groups that I help support.
Every topic in the fall issue certainly lines
up with the work that I do and supports the
messaging that I share with communities
regarding the healthy growth and
development of children. Thank you for

I’ve just read the column The Early Years
Shape Our Brain Architecture. It’s well
written and presents important information
in an easy to understand way. There is
one factual inaccuracy, however. The
Early Child Development Mapping Project
(ECMap), that’s the correct name, is funded
by Alberta Education, not Alberta Health.

As someone who has worked in the field
of early childhood development, education
and family support for many years, and
as a parent of three grown children, I was
delighted with the content of the Fall 2013
issue, which included helpful information
about the nurturing of healthy children in
all domains of development, and the new
column, Building Brains.
It was a timely followup to the excellentFall 2012 issue, Our Brains. Thank you forthis excellent resource that is spreading themessage about the critical importance ofthe early years. I look forward to upcomingissues.
