Chapters

Introducing Orson and his family

Meet baby Orson and his family

What can Orson do at birth?

In this chapter 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.

How does experience shape the brain?

We take an in depth look at the biological development of the brain in relation to Orson’s experience of the world, this explanation is accompanied by animations that help to visually describe the changes and development taking place.

Early experiences, care routines & socialising.

The importance of understanding a babies attempt to signal what they need from us and how this links to their emotional development.

Communicating, babbling, smiling & copying.

Attunement and how it supports communication, including clear examples of motherese – laying the foundation for language development.

Strength, co-ordination, space and movement

How Mum and Dad encourage and support Orson’s physical development together with  information about what’s happening in the brain.

 

Interest in objects, reaching and grasping.

With Orson’s increased physicality, we look at how he is beginning to explore the world around him as his hand eye coordination develops too. Maria Robinson explains what physiological changes are taking place in the brain.

Feeding, new tastes and textures.

As Orson begins to experience food for the first time, we look at how best to introduce process of weaning, from a practical, emotional and social point of view.

New noises, laughing, games and gestures.

In this chapter we examine how experience directly affects brain development and look at the crucial role the primary carer has in shaping this development.

Attachment, feeling safe and secure

Examine the secure loving attachment between Orson and Mum. See how a secure attachment really supports and is integral to healthy development and how his emotional development is becoming regulated.

Myelination, emotions and learning

Brain development at this age and how this links to emotional development and learning abilities. Development of learning and concentration through play with objects in a treasure basket.

 

Communication, joint attention and gesturing

Example of new emerging social skill – joint attention – as Mum reads a book to Orson. We look at the cues Mum picks up on in the way Orson communicates his thoughts and needs.

Object permanence and separation anxiety

Why babies and young children love repetition so much and how repetition really supports brain development. How does recognition of what is familiar and expected, affect responces when the unexpected happens, when Mum leaves and new faces appear.

 

 

Gestures, social referencing and empathy

We look at how with an attuned relationship and secure attachment, Orson and Mum are able to communicate with each other and how this relates to developing skills of empathy. This is linked to his  ability to now be able to check with his mum about her reaction to things that are happening.

 

Problem solving and schemas

Starting to solve problems as he plays and experiments. How he repeats behaviours in different contexts in a schematic way.
