Schreiner Chautauqua Lecture to address babies and math

Schreiner University will present “Teaching Your Baby Math, and Why You Should” by Dr. Mary Seay as part of the Robert P. Hallman Chautauqua Lecture Series at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 26, in the Cailloux Campus Activity Center theater.

Dr. Seay is an associate professor of graduate studies at Schreiner. She received her doctorate in educational psychology, specializing in gifted children, from Texas A&M University.

In her lecture, Dr. Seay will review techniques developed at The Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, which were designed to help parents teach math to their babies.

“From six to 18 months, babies have an incredible ability to absorb information,” Dr. Seay said. “And they enjoy it, even though they can’t say, ‘Wow, this is fun!’”

All Chautauqua events are free and open to the public, and are videotaped for later broadcast on Channel 2 Kerrville, a public service program funded in part by a grant from Humanities Texas.
