Many people believe that abilities are something we are born with, as part of
our genetic inheritance. However, the evidence suggests that learning abilities are not innate and completely determined by biology. Abilities develop and the way in which they
develop depends on a child’s social environment. In other words, what parents do with their children matters.
Here’s a not-to-be-missed opportunity to learn first hand from a world leading expert on practical application of Vygotsky’s theories on child development –
Galina Dolya on supporting your child for optimal abilities development. She will be covering the following topics in her seminar :
