Turnaround for Children featured in Singapore’s Straits Times

Turnaround for Children has been featured in a new profile by Singapore’s Straits Times. The Straits Times’ Senior Education Correspondent, Sandra Davie, interviewed Dr. Pamela Cantor for the article, which explores Turnaround’s origins, its evolution over time to address the educational needs of all children struggling with the impact of adversity, its accomplishments, and its vision for the future.

According to Dr. Cantor as quoted in the article:

“The science shows that we can do something to help these children suffering from poverty-related stress. We can design environments to both correct for that negative impact and, more importantly, to set development on a healthy course.

“Adults can take specific actions to buffer stress for children and help them develop the skills that they need to succeed in school and in life. Much of it boils down to creating trusting relationships and encouraging environments.”
