Reflections Upon My Work With Dr. Emmi Pikler
Who is Dr. Pikler? She, as well as her accomplishments, are well known. She was my children’s pediatrician and my professor.

Dr. Pikler proposed that unrestricted an not sought gross motor development positively influences all other areas of growth – social – emotional, cognitive and even character formation.
