This slide show is about igniting your baby's learning from birth to meet their full potential. The emphasis is about getting babies up and moving to help make all those necessary brain connections from an early age - especially when the brain is making the most vital connections. No time to waste - active bodies = active minds.

  • The key principles underpinning Multiple Intelligences are: 1. Each person processes all seven intelligences in different degrees 2. Everyone has the capacity to develop their own unique pattern of intelligence 3. Everyone can develop each intelligence to an adequate level of competency All the Intelligences are intertwined in a complex way Howard Gardner believes people can be smart in a number of ways and suggests that environments, cultures, and genetic makeup determine how all of our intelligences work together.
  • 1. Moro Reflex ( - 4 months) Freeze, startle 2. Palmar Reflex ( - 3 months) gripping, reaching,mouthing 3 Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex (- 6 months) Neck muscles, head turning, kicking off, hand-eye co-ordination 4 Rooting Reflex ( - 4 months) Searching sucking and swallowing .5. Spinal Galant Reflex ( - 9 months) Lying on tummy rotating hip when stimulated 6. Tonic Labyrinthine Reflex ( - 4 months) LAB Y RINTH - IN Moving head forward and backward - Muscle tone,centre of balance 7. Symmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex ( 6-9 months) On all fours, head causes arms to bend and legs extend Head extension causes legs to flex, arm straighten
