Parents, grandparents, caregivers and those who need a great baby shower gift don’t have to wait any longer for the latest information about early infant brain development and ‘wiring up’ their baby’s brain for a successful future.  Dr. Jill Stamm, founder and director of New Directions Institute for Infant Brain Development has authored a book, “Bright from the Start, the Simple, Science-Backed Way to Nurture your Child’s Developing Mind from Birth to Age 3.”  The book was released in hardback by Penguin Press in August 2007.  Sales have been so strong that the book is now available in paperback too.  

Dr. Stamm earned her doctorate in Learning from Arizona  State University, where she is an associate clinical professor in the Department of Psychology in Education.  She is the mother of two daughters, Kristin, a co-author of the book and doctoral student in neuroscience and Jenny, who has multiple handicaps.  The book is organized around three themes: Attention, Bonding and Communication, and includes the most current scientific information in an interesting and reader friendly format that parents and caregivers can easily incorporate into their day-to-day lives. Jill’s experiences as a mother are documented in each chapter with a “Jenny” story that illustrates the concepts presented.

“This book is a great resource for parents, grandparents and caregivers,” said Dr. Stamm. “Readers will find lots of easy suggestions and general principles on how to ‘wire up’ their babies brains for a successful future.”
