Free Parent Education Event at Children's House Thursday
The Children’s House Montessori School faculty invites interested parents to join them for a video presentation and open discussion of “Good At Doing Things” presented by pediatric neuropsychologist Steven Hughes. “In this highly visual, rapid-paced and entertaining talk, Dr. Hughes describes how Maria Montessori's brain-based approach to education provides an unparalleled foundation for the development of academic, social, and executive functions critical for advanced problem solving and lifetime success. He shows how Montessori education parallels what we now know about brain development and fosters the development of advanced cognitive functions, social cognition, and such higher-order competencies as empathy and leadership.”
Dr. Hughes, PhD, LP, ABPdN, is a board certified pediatric neuropsychologist. He also consults with organizations about educational program evaluation.
This video presentation will be followed immediately by an open discussion for both parents and teachers. The presentation will be offered Thursday, November 8, 6-7:30 p.m. at Children's House, 58 Elm Street in Camden. There is no charge for the evening and it is open to anyone who is interested, but space is limited, so please register in advance by calling 236-2911.
