The first 1,000 days: Bright Futures' examples for promoting early brain and child developmentThis grid provides a framework and examples for promoting and supporting Early Brain and Child Development (EBCD) in practice. Intended for busy health professionals, the grid, developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics Early Brain and Child Development Leadership Workgroup, distills information from a wide array of resources into a practice-friendly framework for pediatricians. EBCD is used as a mnemonic device for actions that health professionals should take to support early brain development: Explore the quality of the child’s socio-emotional home environment; Build relationships; Cultivate development; and Develop parent confidence and competence.
