The Unconscious Absorbent Mind: The Child’s Power to Construct

Dr. Paul Epstein

Description

Without a teacher, the child (0-3) becomes mobile, learns to speak, and constructs intelligence. How do children manage to do this in just three years? Paul will summarize recent research that examines children’s (0-3) physical, cognitive, language, social, and emotional development. A conclusion? Children 0-3 have the most amazing and powerful learning brains on our planet.
