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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have two small children 5 & 6. Now that they are in school, there is such a large focus on homework and grading I feel like they are not keeping up. The institute teaches us that each child develops at their own pace through certain stages and to think all children will master reading, writing and math at the same time if it is pushed on them is not accurate. This gives me a sense of ease about how my children are developing and I trust the institute's findings that they will develop at their own pace.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way I raise my own children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make them promote their materials in all 50 states boards of education.

Role:  Board Member & I assisted in their conference for early childhood in October of 2010.
