Episode Details

This lesson highlights the connection between normal physical growth and a supportive social environment— an area of study called biosocial development. Students learn about expected growth patterns, critical periods of brain development, and ways to support and encourage normal development. Experts in developmental psychology and pediatrics talk about gross and fine motor development, about the importance of reflexes for infant survival, and about the importance of nutrition and breast milk during the first two years.
