Through research we now know that the first few years of a child's life are crucial to healthy brain development.  Among its many valuable pieces of information WWW.ABOUTKIDSHEALTH.CA has developed an online animated, interactive teaching aid about the brain anatomy and function, including a virtual rubber model of the brain that you can take apart, label and draw on.  All information provided on this website is available in Arabic, Chinese(simplified), Chinese (Traditional), French, Portugese, Spanish, Swahili, Tamil and Urdu.  It is hoped that with a better understanding of how the brain functions parents and caregivers can support the healthy development of their children.
