BabyAcademy

Abstract

According to Harvard University, the development of a child’s brain architecture provides the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. Ultimately, genes and experiences work together to construct brain architecture. A major ingredient in this developmental process is the serve and return interaction between children and their parents and other caregivers in the family or community. In the absence of responsive caregiving—or if responses are unreliable or inappropriate—the brain’s architecture does not form as expected or the potential, which can lead to disparities in learning and behavior. The graphic obviously shows that the amount of energy and money are the minimum to develop the brain which means this is an opportunity to create an equality of opportunity in the society.

BabyAcademy is a mobile application that supports the parents how to develop their children in terms of cognitive, social, self-care, motor skills and language.

This is the first and the most comprehensive free innovative mobile application for supporting the development of children between 0-5 age. The parents will reach the guidance how to properly support the brain development via 1 minute videos created by experts. Moreover, all these supports will be personalized based on the speed of development and the developmental needs of the children. Because, every child is special and need different support and approach.

We produce thousands of support materials (1-minute play videos and expert view) created by experts and then allocate the relevant materials for each child based on his/her needs and development speed.
