Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

"Impariamotutti.it" has been a Conference to introduce teachers and school related professionals to Neurodevelopment and how it is important in learning processes and difficulties. We had about 120 people in the Conference, mostly teachers from Tuscany, and they all enjoyed it and gave very good feedback. People was very positive in the comments about every talk and about the Conference mood and style. The catering was organized by high school students that were really proud of their success. Main goal of provocating interest into the brain and its importance in school was achieved for sure. "Connessioni" has been an art contest for middle school kids. We had not enough impact this years if we consider numbers of participation, but the artwork and motivation that arrived was remarkable. We'll try to provide more materials in italian for teachers to try to go further next year.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

For our staff it was good to feel useful not only clinically but also in a divulgative action. We were more motivated by feeling positive feedback in the school teachers. For the teachers and schools in our enviroment, we have feedback that they are changing some practices in order to give more room to neurodevelopmental sensitive activities in the classroom. It was particulary useful in the integration of kids with special needs.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

- Cooperate with local authorities and schools was particulary useful.
