As a clinical associate professor at Arizona State University, I teach courses in how people learn, including how very young minds wire up for learning. In 2001, I patented a system called Brain Boxes™ for teaching parents and other care providers about the science of early development. This product is designed to engage a child in interactive activities linked to brain processes that support later learning skills. The Brain Box prototypes for ages birth through five have been tested in workshops and child-care settings for five years, and I have recently made a home-based product called Baby Brain Box, which concentrates on a baby’s first year of life.
