We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers created a collegial environment in which we were all able to connect and engage!

Some comments from our attendees

It was such a wonderful learning experience and there is so much for me to take back, not only to my Kindy but for my career working with young people in the future. 


The Inaugural Australasian Conference for Neuroscience, Learning and Wellbeing has been the highlight of the professional development I have completed in my years of teaching. It has provided me with knowledge, understanding and strategies that I feel every teacher should have access to. This experience has positively and profoundly enhanced my practices working with the most vulnerable young people. I can't express my gratitude and respect enough to Rita, and all of the presenters, for the wealth of knowledge and support they have shared to make educational environments a positive and healing place for children's sense of wellbeing.


Once again thank you Rita! I look forward to next year's conference.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to attend your two-day Inaugural Australasian Conference for Neuroscience, Learning & Well-being last week. It was wonderful to be privy to some of the latest research and developments in brain-based education, including your Brain Smart 4 Learning initiative. Thank you!


I was also heartened to see such collaborative interdisciplinary initiatives promoting brain-based approaches to learning & well-being. Attending the two-day conference has affirmed my personal interest in the promotion of collaborative trauma-informed and brain-based initiatives.
