David Elkind Presentation
Renowned child psychologist and author Dr. David Elkind will be speaking to School of Education students and faculty on Thursday, October 11 at 3:30pm in the Rose Performance Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Elkind is author of The Hurried Child: Growing Up Too Fast Too Soon, All Grown Up and No Place to Go, Miseducation, and most recently The Power of Play among other publications. His research is in the areas of perceptual, cognitive and social development and he has explored the very real difference between the mind of a preschool child and that of a school-age child. David Elkind makes it clear how much young children can learn when they are presented with appropriate challenges.

He co-hosted the Lifetime Television series, Kids These Days and has appeared on The Today Show, The CBS Morning News, Twenty/Twenty, Nightline, Donahue, and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
