LISTEN: Podcast tackles how COVID has affected child development

While the health risks of COVID to children are lower than those of older adults, the reduced social interaction, missed time in school and other consequences of the pandemic has affected children of all ages in ways we are just now beginning to understand.

In the latest episode of The Path Forward Dayton, a Dayton Daily News podcast, we’re sharing the discussion we held on Wednesday, March 16 with a panel of local experts that included:

  • Robyn Lightcap, executive director of Preschool Promise
  • Shannon Cox, superintendent of the Montgomery County Educational Service Center
  • David Taylor, superintendent of the Dayton Early College Academy
  • Katherine Lambes, a local pediatrician with the Community Health Centers of Greater Dayton
