VELO CULT: Emily Weiss (PSU) & Jamaali Roberts (PNCA) on Sleep

March 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sleep, School & Self-regulation

Emily Weiss, Psychology, Portland State University and Jamaali Roberts, PNCA

How critical is sleep for young brains? Little kids transitioning to school need to manage their thoughts, feelings, and actions, and theory suggests that sufficient sleep is essential. How does a lack of sleep affect kindergarteners and young children, and impact their development of self-regulation skills? How do racial/ethnic and socioeconomic inequities relate to how well, and how long kids sleep?

Emily focuses on applied research, taking science out of the lab into real classrooms and home environments that children navigate every day. Learn about current research on sleep, self-regulation, and classroom contexts among low-income, African-American kindergarteners.
