After completing the reading for this week, your assignment is to consider the following:
We’ve all seen (and those of us who are parents have also used) the array of toys, books, videos, apps, and tools that are made to help children practice their newly found senses and skills needed to learn about the world. With your knowledge of the rapid motor and brain development (leading to massive cognitive and language growth) we expect to see in the first few years of life, design a product that aims to nurture at least one milestone in children ages 0-5 years. Give your product a name, describe it’s intended purpose (what age in the 0-5 year period will use it or is it used for parents/medical professionals who work with these populations? How does it work?), and explain which milestone/critical or sensitive period/ theory/ or skill this product will support.
Write a short answer response of about 1-2 paragraphs (minimum 150 words) about it.
