Children grow and develop rapidly, showing remarkable changes in basic skills such as language during their first years of life. Many children with delays or deficits can be identified rather easily, but the vast majority of children who will eventually show differences are difficult to diagnose early in life. Why?
Renowned scholar in infant language research and Haskins Laboratories’ Distinguished Research Scientist Dr. Richard Aslin will answer this question in his talk at the Robert J. Schwartz Memorial Lecture titled “What Basic Research on Brain and Behavior Can Tell Us About Young Children with Learning Challenges” on Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. at The Windward School’s Manhattan campus on the Upper East Side. The lecture is open to the public, and there is no fee to attend; however, reservations are required at thewindwardschool.org/lecture.
