A parent talk by Lisa Romero
Through the healthy development of the senses the human being learns about the world and develops the capacities for attention, self-regulation and healthy attachment, which are essential for learning how to learn. This talk will explore the care and development of the senses as well as the needs and possibilities of healing the impacts of technology on the growing child. This opportunity is highly valuable for teachers, parents, therapists and those wishing to gain insight into the Waldorf understanding of child development and the pedagogical approaches that support healthy growth.
