News: April 2014 - Mojisola Opawale presented a scientific paper on Improving cognition development at the International Congress for Earlychildhood Interventionss in Antalya, Turkey.

Gritwel Earlychildhood participated at the International Congress for Earlychildhood Interventionss. The conference was held from 3rd to 6th of April in Antalya, Turkey.

Normal presence of reflex actions (such as ATNR, Hand-mouth reflex, Moro reflex, Palmar grasp reflex, Sucking reflex. etc.) can be linked to a greater likelihood of good cognitive development. Her presentation elaborately discussed the cluster of concepts and theories, that describes the dependence of cognition development on embryonic nervous system and primitive reflexes manifestations.
