Neurotoxicity of Poverty

Reach Out and Read is a Boston based literacy program. You can read more about it in my other post here or visit their website here.

They hold conferences, and have uploaded the slides from a presentation done by Dr. Dipesh Navsaria on both the neurotoxicity of poverty and the importance of literacy. Dr. Navsaria is inspirational and more information about him can be found on his website.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”

— Frederick Douglass (1817–1895)
