Free workshop on importance of early brain development

A professor from the University of Toledo is coming to the National Sports Center in Blaine Tuesday, April 9 to talk about brain development early in life and how it can affect people’s behavior down the road.

The Anoka County Child Abuse Prevention Council and Connexus Energy are sponsoring this free community event, which is being called “Being the Brakes for Your Child: Helping Children and Teens Navigate Safely Through Life.”

It will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. April 9 at the Schwan’s Center, 1700 105th Ave. N.E. No registration is required.

Dr. Michele Knox is an educator and therapist and specializes in parental guidance, as well as prevention and treatment of aggression and related behavioral problems.

Knox will be meeting with professionals who work with children, teens and families the afternoon of April 9, but registration has already closed for this session.

For more information on the free evening session, contact Pam Wollenburg at the Anoka County Human Services Department at 763-422-7237 or [email protected].

If you dine at Boston’s restaurant at 12794 Riverdale Blvd. in Coon Rapids on Thursday, April 18 from 5 to 9 p.m. or do take-out between April 15 and 19 and mention the Anoka County Child Abuse Prevention Council, Boston’s will donate 10 percent of those checks to the council.
