Child development is an age – old term, familiar and used by many. Childhood is a celebrated and enjoyable period in every human being’s life. These early years have a profound impact on a person’s future. Every childhood presents an incomparable window of opportunity to make a difference in that child’s life, especially if things are not going right. Mankind is improving their knowledge in all aspects of life and technology is aiding us in increasing our information on the process of childhood development at a molecular level. In the medical sector we now have answers to many childhood neurological conditions whether it is for their diagnosis or treatment. It is common knowledge that nutrition, health and genetics influence greatly in the formative years. Traditionally we have many practices to optimize this but what was not known earlier is how much and to what effect does childhood stimulation have on this developmental process. What is ‘magical’ about these early years? The brain of the human is one organ that has been extensively studied as all functions of the body are directed by this organ. Development of the brain is a long drawn out process beginning at the time of conception till about 6-8 years of life. Although the functioning of the brain is sculpted by a lifetime of experiences, this growing period remains the ‘magical’ period in anyone’s life.
