Review for Gesell Institute of Child Development Inc, New Haven, CT, USA
Imagine my surprise when I saw that the Gesell Institute had published a study confirming that what I learned in college and continued to believe regardless of many changes in public philosophy, was still very valid. Children haven't changed, kindergarten has! I attended the LEAD Conference, conducted by the Gesell Institute and was thrilled to be with professionals who know Gesell was right! I hope to see the Institute thrive and revitalize and educate the public, academia and political leaders that allowing children to develop naturally is in everyone's best interest. I hope to be able to be a Gesell supporter in my own community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my own teaching and administrative career. We have used the Gesell philosophy for over 30 years in our NAEYC Accedited child care center and it has served us well.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
do further research and develop screens for infants and toddlers.
