Professor Sam Wass

Recorded webinar – available immediately

Professor Sam Wass presents the neuroscience of why child-led interactions help develop concentration more than adult-led interactions, and discusses how to integrate these ideas into a child-led reading practice with babies and young toddlers. He also looks at why babies’ brains find it easier to process predictable and regular rhythms, and why poetry and nursery rhymes help children learn language.


This webinar is aimed at anyone involved in the early years.


Professor Sam Wass studied at Oxford, London and Cambridge Universities, and currently runs the BabyDev Lab at the University of East London. Sam's research is funded by Research Councils UK, the European Research Council, and Medical Research Council and many others to research how concentration, stress and learning develop during early childhood in typical and atypically developing children (including ADHD, ASD, anxiety and others). He is also a consultant with early years groups including Fennies Nurseries and Newham Learning, and works with commercial organisations including Melissa & Doug and LEGO. He appears regularly in the media, including the Channel 4 series The Secret Life of 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds.


'It was one of the most useful webinars I’ve attended. So much information to help us talk to parents and Early Years practitioners about sharing stories and rhymes.'
