Helping Children Succeed - Reading Together - Beyond the Home and Building Blocks
"At age three and four, they need a high-quality preschool that provides them with a solid grounding in letters and numbers as well as a stable base of interpersonal, motivational, and psychological capacities."
(page 43, Kindle Edition)
"The students improved academically for the simple reason that they were able to concentrate on what was being taught, without their attention being swept away by conflicts and disagreements."
(page 47, Kindle Edition)
"A lot of it has to do with problems of focusing attention, working memory, and cognitive flexibility. And you may not have developed those capacities because of what happened to you early on in your life."
(page 51, Kindle Edition)
