SmartStart: Home-Based Cognitive and Language Remediation Program for Internationally Adopted Children
Children of different ages adopted internationally are often ”at risk” educationally. Deprived of essential learning experiences in orphanages, they are indeed disadvantaged and may have cognitive and language problems moving to more advanced levels of learning after adoption. The answer to this problem in many cases is an early, well-planned, focused, and systematic cognitive and language remediation at school, in the community, and at home. Dr. Gindis gives an overview of the SmartStart program that attempts to enhance every day family activities and make them more cognitively and developmentally effective for a child.
