Two outlets have provided coverage publicizing the Early Learning Symposium:
"The science of healthy children," by Jerry Large, Seattle Times. Published Nov. 7, 2010
Large's column describes how stress for a baby can lead to negative health and behavioral problems later in life. After describing the insights generated by the Early Learning Symposium, Large writes, "We've been gathering information and figuring out what to do with it, taking first steps, like a toddler. Now it is time to retool policies and institutions to run with what we know."
"Brain Science Symposium," Five From Thrive, Nov. 2010 issue
Five From Thrive is a monthly newsletter distributed by Birth to Thrive. The November issue features information from the Washington Early Learning Symposium, noting that "Washington state is a leader in making the first years of life a priority across multiple agencies."
