Dr. Ronald Ferguson

Early Childhood Event -- Everyday Principals to Grow Happy, Healthy and Smart Young Children

Virtual Event

To ensure that all families with children ages birth to three have the information and support that toddlers need for life-success, Dr. Ronald Ferguson, Facility Director of the Achievement Gap initiative at Harvard University, helped develop “The Basics.” His initiative is designed to tackle achievement gaps beginning at birth because disparities that are well-established by the start of school are hard to overcome.

Ferguson will present strategies for the give-and-take, serve and return relationships between children and their caregivers and help parents provide just enough support to foster learning and help children accomplish what they cannot yet do on their own. Parents will learn how to maximize love, manage stress, encourage communication, facilitate movement and play and lay the foundation for executive function and self-regulation skills. Join us to learn the tools caregivers need to help children become amazing people.

Dr. Ronald Ferguson provides active thought leadership for the Basics Learning Network. He is an MIT-trained economist who served on the faculty at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, focusing social science research on economic, social, and educational challenges. He is the author of the award-winning bestseller “Toward Excellence with Equity: An Emerging Vision for Closing the Achievement Gap” and “The Formula: Unlocking the Secrets to Raising Highly Successful Children.”
