Transcript of Arnold Gesell

Arnold Gesell
Philosophy of Education
"We should not, he said, try to force children into our predetermined designs, but should follow their cues as they express basic biological forces of growth."
He believes children go through stages in a fixed sequence and within a specific time period.
Most of the children’s growth is based on natural unfolding of hereditary characteristics already present inside the child, we need to help those characteristics to be expressed in a positive way.
Created The Gesell Developmental Schedules
Founded Clinic of Child Development
