Here is today’s question for you…how can a child born with an Apgar score of 1 (0 is dead!) and declared by doctors to likely face learning disabilities, read words at just eight months year old and enter college at 13? Well our next guest, author Gloria Lindsay refused to accept the doctor’s prognosis and began a program of physical, intellectual and neurological stimulation for her daughter Jennifer. We will be talking about Gloria’s book, “TRIUMPH OVER TRAUMA: LEARNING BEGINS IN INFANCY” and we welcome Gloria Lindsay to the show. 

This book has been on my mind for many years. My daughter lost oxygen at birth and had to be placed in intensive care. By working with her to help her excel intellectually and physically, I have learned that babies and toddlers can absorb far greater knowledge and understanding than many of us realize. Indeed, learning does begin in infancy and we, as parents, can greatly enhance this process. My baby experienced birth trauma, but the opportunities are there whether your child has trauma or has a completely normal birth. All the unbounded possibilities exist through teaching your little one the joy of learning as a lifelong habit. This book illustrates what can be done.
