A cutting-edge handbook for parents from a pioneer in infant brain development
Should you really read to your baby? Can teaching a baby sign language boost IQ? Should you pipe classical music into the nursery? Dr. Stamm translates the latest neuroscience findings into clear explanations and practical suggestions, demonstrating the importance of the simple ways you interact with your child every day. It isn’t the right “edu-tainment” that nurtures an infant’s brain. It is as simple as Attention, Bonding, and Communication, and it’s within every parent’s ability to provide. Practical games and tips for each developmental age group will show you not only what the latest findings are but, more importantly, tell you what to do with them.

A true guide that makes a parent feel empowered and able to help their child learn in a hands on way. Thank you Jill!!
Based on solid facts.
This book, written by a loving mother to a multiply handicapped child, debunks "pop science" trends and sticks to the facts. It also covers the fascinating "whys" of the developing mind. The good news is: your intuitive parenting skills are on-track. The better news is: here are some tips and lifestyle guidelines to help children reach their maximum potential, even if they are starting out at a disadvantage. It includes an appendix on research techniques and extensive references. I recommend this not just for parents, but anyone who interacts with small children on a regular basis.
