Children find both comfort and capacity thought activity and exploration. Our senses, bones, muscles and organs can only finish maturing when they are put to use - they are not at all complete when we are born. In this parent evening, we will explore what kinds of learning help support this rapidly developing process and when as taskt is too specific too soon. Children thrive with a broad base of activity that mixes many different sensory experiences together.

Adam Blanning, MD, practices anthroposophic medicine in Denver, CO, and works closely with children, families, and schools to support healthy development on a physical, social, sensory, and spiritual level. Dr. Blanning teaches nationally and internationally as a co-leader of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum in Switzerland. He is the author of Raising Sound Sleepers: Helping Children Use their Senses to Rest and Self-soothe.
