From the Experts

By emphasizing the emotional experience of infants and toddlers, CuddleBright™ Experience provides a unique roadmap to enhance parents’ connections to their children. These loving serve-and-return interactions early in life are beautifully illustrated and are fundamental to creating emotionally secure successful adults.

As a pediatrician, I know the impact of the child’s experiences in the first years of life. Experiences organize the brain to develop the connections that allow future skill attainment and healthy social skills to deal with life’s challenges. The focus of the Simms/Mann Institute on disseminating and integrating knowledge of the crucial 0-3 years of development is expanding our ability to improve the health of the whole child and of every child.
