BBC Website for GROWING CHILDREN
A major 3-part series on child development called ‘Growing Children’ by Pioneer Productions. Presented by expert child psychologist Laverne Antrobus (‘Growing Babies’ BBC4 and ‘The Biology of Dads’ BBC4), it explores how child development is affected by 3 major developmental disorders – dyslexia, autism and OCD. Spending time with effected families, Laverne examines each of these developmental conditions and attempts to view the world through the eyes of a child affected by them. She investigates the possible causes of each one, how they can be treated and what they tell us about how the brain develops during childhood and beyond.
