The Baby's Attention During Play

Resource Type

Video - Parent


"Based on the research of Anna Tardos, this video explores the phenomenon that infants who have had a harmonious relationship with those around them seem more able to find pleasure in autonomous and independent activities. Tardos also investigates the different types of attentiveness which infants can manifest under favorable circumstances, types of attentiveness which during lengthy periods of play seem to form a self-regulated system. This system is a sign of a healthy equilibrium and its presence in the infant serves to facilitate the learning process and insure healthy cognitive and affective development. The infants in this program range in ages from 9 to 12 months." -Child Development Media, Inc.
