I-LABS in the Classroom: Module 07: Development of Attachment (legacy)
All children deserve the best start in life and new scientific discoveries deepen our understanding of how to create the best environments for children. The Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington (I-LABS) is an interdisciplinary center dedicated to discovering the fundamental principles of human learning, with a special emphasis on early learning and brain development. This hour long class covers the following points: Babies have a biological need for loving care. They begin forming an emotional bond with their caregivers at birth. Infants form an attachment to primary caregivers by the end of their first year. The quality of attachment relationships is different for each child. Child and family factors can affect attachment quality. Attachment relationships during infancy can have lasting effects on children’s development. Yet, attachment quality can improve with proper support.
