Review for Gesell Institute of Child Development Inc, New Haven, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began my Early Childhood profession in 1972 and in 1985 I was trained by the Gesell Institute to administer the Gesell Developmental Observation Assessment for my school district. The research done by this Institute is a wonderful tool in helping understand the young child. This understanding allows professionals in the classroom to provide appropriate learning opportunities for each student, based not on the child's chronological age, but on the potential of the child!
After my retirement, I contacted the Gesell Institute to thank them for helping to make my classroom career a successful one. They were so gracious as to extend to me an opportunity to assist them in gathering data for their newest observation tool. Once again, I was able to sit with young children and delight in their sincere responses to my queries and, at the same time, gather information that will help innumerable children as they progress through their formal education. It is a pleasure interact with the dedicated staff of the Gesell Institute whose sole purpose is to help children succeed.

The only thing I would change about the Gesell Institute would be to make more educators aware of their work.
