Neuroimaging has shown that language learning changes the structure of the infant/toddler brain. Effective language learning at an early age results in an adult brain that is more able to manage the immense volume of information it must take in. This workshop will offer practical guidelines, supported by Montessori methodology and current research, for fostering optimal language development in children from birth to age 3.
