A Look at Your Infant’s Brain Development
The first few years of your child’s life are an incredibly exciting learning experience. Emotional security is closely linked with learning and brain development. Initially, newborns respond primarily to touch, followed by soothing, soft sounds. At about two to four weeks of age, visual pathways in the brain begin to develop. Infants learn a great deal from facial expressions and voices, which is one reason why it’s important to maintain a serene environment for your child, such as the environment of an early infant program at a Montessori school in Allen.
You can hear more about your infant’s brain development by watching this interview with a physician. He discusses how infants and toddlers learn by exploring and interacting with their environment. He also offers some tips for helping your child feel safe and secure.
