Module 3 begins by focusing on the critical issues of brain development and identity formation. Participants focus on the four “courses” of infancy: Physical Development 101, Social Relations 101, Language Development 101, and Intellectual Development 101. Participants are introduced to the concept of infants as self-motivated learners. All children are born wired for feelings and ready to learn in the context of caring relationships and a peaceful but engaging environment. Three strategies that caregivers can use to support infant learning will be discussed: adapt, support practice and repetition, and expand learning.
