Event Description


Technology is transforming the way we communicate with friends, colleagues — and even our own families. Screens now affect everything from the way our toddlers learn and develop to the way our teenagers connect with their peers, us and the world. Dr. Steiner-Adair will discuss how to reap the benefits of technology while reducing the risks it poses to children at every stage. Dr. Anderson will discuss parenting strategies and the impact of technology on children with emotional and behavioral challenges.
