The Center for Children and Families shared insights on how young children develop at a sold-out Chicago Ideas Week event in October.

Margret Nickels, the Center’s executive director, and Jim Grabowski, the Center’s clinic director, led parents and professionals through a series of experiments exploring how children experience, make sense of, and navigate their environment.

Erikson was also a community partner of Chicago Ideas Week, an annual seven-day celebration of ideas, innovation, and community.
