Multilingual Education in Practice GCRF classroom films project: Hyderabad_Film 2
The second film we visit an English medium private school in Hyderabad which is modelled on the Waldorf Steiner approach. The teachers generally work with the same group of children over several years, moving with them as they progress up through the levels of school. The lessons typically have a relatively slow pace, with a focus on deep learning, reflection and discussion.

The effects of profound early deprivation on brain and behavioural development
In this talk, Professor Charles A. Nelson, Harvard University, discusses what happens to children whose experience after birth deviates from the norm; specifically, infants who experience profound early neglect. In the Bucharest Early Intervention Project three groups of Romanian children are being studied: infants abandoned to institutions and who remain in institutional care; infants abandoned to institutions but then placed in high quality foster care; and infants who have never been institutionalized. These three groups have been studied for the past 16 years and in this talk he discusses the findings from a variety of domains (including but not limited to IQ, attachment, and brain development). This work will be considered within the broader context of the 140 million parentless children around the world, 8 million of whom are being raised in institutional settings. This talk is supported by the Economic and Social Research Council.
