About Gesell Institute
Gesell Institute of Child Development is a well-known non-profit agency that has
been associated with understanding how children grow and learn since 1950. Gesell
programs, publications, and research efforts help parents, educators, psychologists, social workers, and medical professionals worldwide in understanding the ages and stages of childhood.
Understanding stages of child growth and development and using this knowledge to interpret behaviors, plan appropriate curricula, and manage the classroom are essential to quality teaching practices. Such understanding is also integral to quality parenting, and in implementing best practices in all professions working with children.
Gesell materials, seminars, and workshops link the continuum of growth and development to a variety of practical applications, including the use of an effective screening measure, the Gesell Developmental Observation-Revised (GDO-R) and the Gesell Early Screener (GES).
Gesell Institute provides multiple sources of information for parents, teachers, and schools to assist them in making important decisions about children. We do not set policy or provide recommendations surrounding issues of retention, placement, or readiness “scores” in association with the Gesell Developmental Observation.
