BRAIN FACT: Brains Of Infants And Toddlers Are Too Immature To Be Taught To Read

Monday, November 15, 2010

The brains of infants and toddlers are too immature to be taught to read. Children at these ages can only memorize. It is most advantageous to teach actual reading when the brain has matured. Young brains benefit most from being read to, having fun interactions with people, and playing with real objects.

Frequently I am asked about the, “Your Baby Can Read” program. It is always great to use this as an opportunity to explain how the developing brain really learns. I am thrilled to let you know, The Today Show reported that experts agree that this program is not valuable to developing brains. Watch here!

It will be wonderful when everyone is aware of the knowledge we have to help all children develop best!  This can be done so easily even during busy everyday life. Sharing real brain development activities and information is made easy with, The Brain Development Series.
