Abstract/Notes: Awes, AMI trainer at the elementary level, carefully explains how children inherit the potential for language and how its acquisition is virtually guaranteed. All typical children, regardless of culture, will at a given moment come to speak their native language. Montessori found that the absorbent mind, sensitive periods, and human tendencies assist in this acquisition. In contrast, written language does not come naturally to human beings. Children will not develop writing and reading without some degree of direct experience, preparation, and instruction—and this is where obstacles experienced may manifest themselves as dyslexia.

Abstract/Notes: In the early months of 1939, Maria Montessori spent most of her time in the Netherlands. She had commissioned the manufacture of especially designed child-size furniture, and an Amsterdam store hosted the exhibition of this special furniture for a number of weeks. To help explain the philosophy behind the furniture Maria Montessori gave a talk at the store. Dr Montessori made a strong plea for family and school to truly and effectively collaborate, ensuring that both environments are complementary.
