The wonder year – introduction

This section welcomes Orson into his family, emphasising his complete dependence on his parents as well as letting us see that he enters the world equipped with a basic ‘tool box’ of skills. These provide him with a ‘kick start’ in making sure that he gets the care he needs. We look at the development of Orson’s senses, what he can see, hear, taste and smell. We examine his in built reflexes of sucking, rooting, startle and we also explore how Orson recognises Mum and Dad.
