with Jennifer Rosinia, Ph.D.

Friday, October 11, 2013 | 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

A baby kicks her arms and legs excitedly when her mother comes into sight. A child jumps for joy upon hearing the start of his favorite song. This workshop explores the reciprocal relationship between motor skills and social- emotional development. Participants will examine the connection between the two domains of a child’s development from multiple perspectives, including how a child’s motor skill development influences his social- emotional development and how typical and atypical motor development influences coping in the young child.
