Screen-Time and the Developing Child
Dimitri Christakis, MD
Tues, Feb 13, 7-8:15pm PT
A new generation of children is growing up exposed to screen time as toddlers and even babies. Now that iPhones and tablets with engaging touch screens are within reach and often supplant real-world play, what do we know about the impact on children’s cognitive, emotional and social development in our digital first world?  
Dr. Dimitri Christakis, Director for Child Health and Development at the Seattle Children's Research Institute, will share the latest data from his studies with very young research participants about how children interact with screens and the impact on healthy development.
