Gesell Institute of Child Development
Review for Gesell Institute of Child Development Inc, New Haven, CT, USA
I recently attended a Gesell Institute GDO-R Workshop for the first time. It was a great 3-day experience. My instructor, who spoke from life experience, being a mother herself and a elementary school principal, was very knowledgeable presenter. I took this info back to my classroom and now even look at my students with a whole new understanding. I feel that I can now be a better teacher becuase of the Gesell Developmental Observation-Resvised. Gesell Institute has been educating adults about the ages & stages of child development since the 50s, and Gesell assessments have been successfully used for the past 85 years! Many more schools across the country should know of their expertise.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Would employ more people at the non-profit. I know they have a small staff and high demand. We were told that there are going to be 14 GDO-R workshops hosted across the country in June.
